 I am dancing with my mom. The song I hope you dance has always been “our” song. So we will be dancing to that. My SO and I tossed around other Idea such as I dance with his dad and he dances with my mom at the same time. To show that we are one family. But I think we will go with me dancing with my mom  and he dances with his mom.

My vote is don’t do a dance with you dad, or else pick a super short song.

Also, can your mom come in the carriage with you and your dad?


Or, spend the time between now and your wedding improving your relationship with your dad? Cos you’ll have so much spare time, right πŸ˜‰

I am close with my Dad, but I still felt akward dancing with him. So I danced with my dad at the same time as DH was dancing with his mom. It made the whole “silly wedding formalities” portion of the reception shorter as well.

Have mom and dad in the carriage. Dance with dad at the same time as Fiance dances with his mom, then part way through he goes to dance with your mom and you dance with his dad. There are many ways to get around this. Plus, you don’t have to do any of it if you don’t want to. My mom walked me down the aisle.

Bride2be2015:  Could you dance at the same time that your Fiance dances with his mom? That way you still dance with your dad, but all of the attention is not on you.

I would have your mom walk you down the aisle with your dad, as well.

It is your wedding.  You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. Meet your dad at the venue and go with your Maid/Matron of Honor or mum in the carriage. Walk down the aisle with your Maid/Matron of Honor or mum or on your own. Watch your Fiance dance with his mum and enjoy watching him have that moment or dance with your mum or a friend
