So my FI are going back and forth with what to do…
At first, we didn’t even want music. We were just going to play light background music as our reception is at a resturant and it will be a “cocktail” atmosphere. Neither of us really like dancing, and the space doesn’t really lend itself to a loud, party atmosphere.
Now I am having second thoughts. I would really like to have a first dance with my FI, just for the romantic memory. I’ve even found the perfect song that is very sweet and explains our relationship to a T. He is unsure..I think he is going to feel awkward/embarassed, he REALLY hates dancing and doesn’t like attention on him as it is. Neither of us want to have a mother/son or father/daughter dance…we’re just not like that..and neither are our parents.
We still want to do the bouquet and garter toss, and we might even play the “how well do you know your spouse” game…but I don’t want it to be completely random in the middle of dinner and mingling.
-Any suggestions on how I can encorporate a first dance without making him feel awkward?
-Is the mother/son, father/daughter dance necessary (is it rude not to have it)?
-How can I make the overall flow of the night natural w/ the first dance, tosses, and game without tons of dancing…or should I have dancing anyway…?
