What is your opinion on this? I want to do the father/ daughter dance and my dad and I both talk about it.
However, my fiance is not really letting me know either way about the mother/son dance. He once said that he does not want to do it …
What do you think?

if he’s uncomfortable doing the dance, i wouldn’t make him. you can still do you’re dance with your dad.

My fiance’s mother isn’t coming to our wedding (she’s terrified to fly over from England), so he is going to ask my mother to dance about halfway through our father-daughter dance, and join in with us to finish out the song.

i’ve been to lots of weddings where there was only the father-daughter dance, not the mother-son. No big deal I say. I didn’t even know about the mother-son dance until I joined weddingbee since nobody has done it! I’ve only seen it at one other wedding besides mine

I don’t really want to do the mother/son dance (too many special dances = boring!), but I’m leaving that up to FI and FMIL without letting them know about that. 😉

I agree with “too many special dances=boring”– try to keep them short!

I know my FMIL is super excited about it – so it’ll definitely happen. They’ll probably start about half-way through the father daughter dance – that’s what she wants.

My father is deceased so we are not having a father-daughter dance (I could dance with my uncle, who is giving me away, but I don’t want to), so he is having his mother-son dance instead. I recently decided that I will dance with my uncle but it will be to a song that my grandmother (who raised me) always said was her song for me, and it will be later in the night so as not to confuse with the father-daughter dance. I wish my dad could give me away but since he can’t, I don’t want to take all the “father” things and just give them to my uncle.

My FI and his mom aren’t ones that really like the center of attention, so I won’t force them to do the dance. We’re still doing the father/daughter dance and our first dance.

I’m definitely doing a father/daughter dance, but my FI is not at all interested in doing a mother/son dance. I’m not going to push the issue, but I told him that I want it to be made perfectly clear to his mom that it was his decision, not mine.

We’re just having the father/daughter dance. FI’s mom passed away several years ago, and his step-mom (she’s been his step-mom for a while now) would be more than willing to step in and do it, but FI doesn’t really want to. I’m not pushing him on this issue, since I understand why he’s opposed.

We’re both doing it — two separate songs though. I’m dancing with my dad to the song I was named after (he picked my name, not my mom) so it sort of wouldn’t make any sense to combine them.
He’s dancing with his mom to some Barry Manilow song, I think, although I can’t remember the name right now.

I don’t think FI is going to do one…he says it would be “weird” for them. I don’t care if they do it either way…whatever makes him happy! I am doing one with my dad though.
