- Wedding: February 2014
FH and I attended a wedding last night that had all the traditional wedding stuff (bouquet and garter toss, and the parent/child dances, etc.) and were discussing how this might work. I don’t have a dad and my mother is out of the picture; however, I’ll be listing my aunt, who raised me as her own, as “mother of the bride” on the programs.
FH has two sets of parents–mom and stepdad, dad and stepmom. I was thinking we could combine these dances and have him dance with my aunt, where I could start dancing with either his dad or stepdad and have the other cut in about halfway through. But would that exclude his mothers too much? I mean, since I don’t have a dad, it’d be kind of awkward because I wouldn’t have anyone to dance with if they danced with him and I’d just be kind of standing off to one side. But my rationale is, I’m sure they’ll cut in at some point anyway or during a different song to dance with him if they want to, so I’m not sure we really have to arrange this.
Our other option is to skip these altogether, because they’re not super important to us and would be complicated to figure out anyway.
What would you do?
