I have a sticky situation re: the father daughter dance. Both of my fiance’s parents have passed away & it’s super emotional for him that they are missing this big event in his life… On the other hand my dad wants to do a father daughter dance with me. My fiance specifically asked me not to, in hopes of avoiding a breakdown on what should be a happy day for both of us. I’m caught in the middle of this. To be honest I could totally skip the father daughter dance and not mind BUT I do think it’s important to my dad. I’ve thrown out the idea to both of them of doing a “bridal party dance” where all the bridal party will dance with their +1– not their wedding partner & I could dance with my dad in an unofficial dance. This way there are others on the dancefloor & it’s not announced. My dad sounded like he’d go with it, my fiance was not sold. The other complicating factor is that my mom really wants to dance with my fiance. He feels like he’s getting suckered into doing a mother/son dance with my mom and doesn’t want to. I can’t really make everyone happy here so what’s the best solution?
