Ok so Its not a big shocker that the Mother of the Bride and the Father of the Groom get placed on the back burner in most weddings. I mean typically the Father of the bride walks her down the aisle and gets to have a dance with her, and the Mother of the groom gets to have that sentimental dance with her son. What I would like to do is have a dance (after dinner) where My Fi asks my mom to dance and I dance with my new father in law,
Do you have any suggestions on a song that could be used?

I plan on doing the same thing, but not really selecting a particular song – just doing it while out on the dance floor!

We are actually doing this too. In FI’s family there’s just him and his brother, and in mine I only have a sister.. So my mom, and his dad will never get the experience of a “special” wedding dance so we decided to do a parent swap to honor them too.
When or if I find any songs that fit I will come back and let you know.

I’m also doing this. My mom was pretty happy about it when I old her because she has given most of my support since she and my dad had a divorce. I thought it was only right for her to get a chance in the spotlight. I’m not sure about a song though.

I thought about doing this to save time. Dance with my dad and Fiance and his mom dance at the same time and then halfway through bring in his dad and my mom. I brought it up to my mom but she said she doesn’t want to be in the spotlight. Idk how I’m gonna break it to her though b/c I’m not crazy about a father/daughter mother/son dance bc they are too time consuming and Fiance and I are dancing to 2 songs. I’ve never really been close to my dad so it doesn’t really bother me that we’re not having that special dance.
