Okay, I think that Fiance and I are going to have a "First Dance". After conviencing him. He don’t know how to dance, I told him that I don’t either. "Just dance like you would have for a slow song at prom." LOL! Here’s the idea that I thought of, and you girls tell me what you think:
My bestest friend in the world, who is my Maid/Matron of Honor, got married back in August of 2007. Her wedding was small. Just mainly her husband’s family was there, and just a few select people were there on her side. (Her dad wasn’t even there…LONG story) ANYWAYS. At their reception, they never got the "throwing of the rice" when they left. Most of the guests left before they did!! (Ten of us stayed to clean up; The bride, groom, me, the best man, Mother of the Bride, Father of the Groom, a co-worker of the bride, and the grooms 3 brothers)
Anyways, they never got their first dance. And they really wanted it. Or she did. So what I thought about doing, being the best friend I am, I thought about after Fiance and I have our first dance, letting them have their "belated" first dance. Two years later of course. But what do you think? I know that it’s my day, but I would like to do that for her.
What do you think?

that sounds really cute and sweet of you! Do you know what song they’d want played? I’m not having a first dance, unfortunately, because we aren’t having dancing so that would be a little tacky!

I think that’s a wonderful sweet idea. What a way to honor your Maid/Matron of Honor.

Could you do something where after your first dance, you have your Maid/Matron of Honor and hubby start the bridal party dance? Then the rest of the bridal party and you can join in (with their own SO’s), half way through the song.
The only reason why I say this is that if you are going to have all of the traditional "first dances" I think it might get a bit long for your uest to wait through 3-5 minute songs for each: bride and groom, father and bride, mother and groom, and bridal party, on top of another Maid/Matron of Honor and husband dance. If you are skipping some of those other dances I’d think it would be fine

My dad isn’t a big dance. He hates it. Even asked my mom if he had to. At the time, she told him "No, I don’t think she even wants to dance." And I wouldn’t care to have a father/daughter dance, but I would feel so akward dancing with my dad. You know how fathers dance with their little girls standing on their feet? I don’t ever recall doing that when I was little. And my dad kinda intimidates me, but not in a bad way. I’d be afraid that he would wanna talk about something while we were dancing. Of which would get me tore up. lol.
But if we did all of those dances: bride/groom, bride/father, groom/mother, bridal party; we would have to throw in a groom/aunt because his aunt (FMIL sister) is pretty much his mother (His aunt and uncle raised him & his sister pretty much) I could dance with his uncle, LOL! To Elvis, the man likes "the king" as much as I do! lol!
What I had thought about doing was, playing a song, like Fiance & I starting out dancing our first dance. Then during the 2nd verse of the song, having: my parents, his mom & step-dad, and his aunt & uncle come out and join us. I thought it would be really sweet. But my mom says that I honestly doubt if I could get my dad out there.
He’s so stubborn. lol
