We are skipping them.  My father and I are not close and my Fi’s mother is not well.   We are also only dancing to the first verse of our song and then asking everyone to join us on the dance floor… No need for everyone to watch us spinning in circles!

My dad and I are doing a father/daughter dance, but my FH isn’t doing one with his mom/step-mom. It’s sort of a touchy subject with that, so he’s just not going to do one.

We’re skipping it.  For no other reason than I think it’s just a bit awkward.  No weird family drama, nothing. 

Said that, we’re getting married in Brazil and when I asked my mom she said she never heard of father/daughter – mother/son dances.

I want to skip them (I’m having a hard time deciding, do I dance with my dad, step-dad, grandfather, eek!). My Fiance says I need to be a grown-up and decide. I may  just decide this is a no go….

we’re doing the first dance because apparently that gives the signal that everyone else can dance afterwards.

Totally skipping parent-child dances.  That’s a lot of watching people who are not good dancers try to dance.  I doubt we or our guests would enjoy it.
