- Wedding: May 2012
When I first got engaged, I never thought I’d want a completely traditional wedding. However, on the drive home from my mom’s, I started thinking about it, and how I might actually want to do dances.
I’ve been to weddings that have the first dance with the bride and groom and with the parents, but I have a special situation.
My father passed away when I was 8, and my mother remarried when I was 13. And if I am going to do a dance, I want to include them both.
I was thinking of doing the traditional first dance with hubby, then dancing with my mother in place of my father and then with my stepdad.
Is it too much or too long to try to do?
I’d have seperate songs for each person.
And, if I were to do the mother/daughter dance in place of the father/daughter dance, would it be inappropriate to play a father/daughter song?
I’m really not sure what to do with this, since I’ve never seen it done.
Would it just be a better idea to honor my father in some other way at the reception?
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
