You are overthinking. I did the father/daughter dance and my husband skipped the mother/son dance. It wasn’t a big deal. Have a mother/son dance, let them have thier moment and then move on with the rest and of the reception.

I think doing just the Mom+Son dance is fine. If there is someone else significant in your life you can dance with them (brother, uncle, cousin, best male friend), but otherwise, just take the few minutes to get off your feet and sip some champagne! Totally not something to stress over. 

I’d let them pick out their own song and leave your dad totally out of it.

My father has passed, but of course my DH and his mom wanted to have their dance, which I absolutely supported. They had their dance and I didn’t have one, which was perfectly fine and no one thought anything of it.

As long as the DJ knows about it, they can smoothly transition you from the mother-son dance into something else. It’s a great time to do the anniversary dance, or something that keeps the reception moving along.

Let your fiance do the mother/son dance, but don’t do a father/daughter dance. It’s no big deal, no one will miss it. I agree with above that you should just make sure the DJ is aware.
