- Wedding: December 2010
Ok, I’m willing to put myself out there and probably have to deal with the heat from all of you telling me that I am, in fact, a major asshole:
But, since I am the least sentimental person in the world, I find the mother/son dance particularly “ughhh”. Like, realllllly?
FMIl is divorced, and Fiance is most definitely the man in her life. And the thought of her crying in his arms for 5 minutes of a celin dion song while all our guests gaze on is just like, so, ughhhh.
If it helps me the situation, I’ll add that I also want to forego the father/daughter dance too.
But, according to FI—this dance is not “forego-able”. Maybe I’m just whining because I am working so hard to plan this wedding but when Fiance wants something (eg: a big wedding, a catholic ceremony, mrs. crazy on the guest list, etc, etc) I MUST include it. But when I nicely say: I’d like a small wedding, I don’t want the ceremony to be Catholic, I feel really uncomfortable inviting a woman who is trying to set you up with her daughter, and I really would rather dance with our parents during the night unannounced rather than having the DJ announce it and have everyone watch us–my Fiance tells me to deal with it.
