- Wedding: March 2013
My fiance and I were discussing the dances at our reception. We decided that, after our first dance, we would combine the father/daughter and mother/son dances into one dance, and skip the party dance all together. We decided this because we have attended weddings in the past where that part of the reception seemed very long. After we discussed this, he told me he would like to have a dance with just him and his 4 year old daughter. I did not share my feelings with him when he mentioned this, because I was not sure if I was being ridiculous and therefore felt I needed to stew on it a bit. I also wanted your advice. See, I do not really feel comfortable with this dance with him and his daughter. He is a great dad and he loves her very much, but is it appropriate? I know she is first in his life, his number one priority…as she should be. But, the one time I want it to be about he and I is our wedding. I am not saying don’t dance with her at all. I am just not sure why he needs to have it as a solo event like that. She is part of the ceremony. I love her to death. Is it wrong, though, that I feel uncomfortable with the reception beginning solo dance? Am I being selfish or unreasonable? She is usually his center of attention, and I get that. She should be. But is it wrong that just that night I want that title alone? Please share your thoughts with me. I really could us3 a sounding board.
