We didn’t have father/daughter or mother/son dances. The only specified dance we had was the bride & groom first dance. I did dance with my dad later during the reception, but it wasn’t spotlighted or anything like that, we were just two more people on the dancefloor.

We also didn’t have parent speeches. The only speeches were the toasts by the maid of honor and the best man.

We skipped it.  Having said that, we did pick a song that we knew Mr. DG and his mom would want to dance to together, but it wasn’t just them on the dance floor 🙂

i think FH will still be doing his mother/son dance but my father (baptist minister) does NOT dance. so i might either do a mother/daughter dance or just nothing at all. still not sure.

SO skipping the parent dances.  My parents are separated and relationships are awkward.  And we are also skipping parent toasts.  Brothers and sisters and maids and groomsmen can toast.  No parents.  It’s actually pretty common- most nice weddings that i have been to have let the parents simply be guests and enjoy the party without having to make embarassing or silly emotional speeches.  It’s much better this way, really.
