Welcome to Weddingbee!

I was in a wedding where the groom’s grandfather was one of his groomsmen. It wasn’t awkward.

What do you mean by a bridal party dance?

i never heard of a bridal party dance. just pick who you want to be in the wedding party. whoever you match with can dance for the 2ish minutes and then they never have to touch again.

I don’t see this being a big deal.

I would skip the bridal party dance, they are very awkward and uncomfortable. I had to do one for a wedding about 4 years ago and I got death stares ALL NIGHT LONG from the GF of the guy I had to dance with – even when I was dancing with my now H!!

@akriegel24:  Just make sure that you don’t pick a really slow song. I am presuming that if you are old enough to be getting married, your BM’s are also old enough to be mature and graceful for one dance.

You could also have the B’s and groomsmen switch partners a few times during the bridal party dance.

Why would it be weird? I would wager that in most weddings there are members of the bridal party that have never met. Not like they’re going on a date. It’s a dance. Honestly, I’d just skip the bridal party dance, but if you really want one, then I don’t see why it would be any more awkward with his dad.

@akriegel24:  If your sooon to be Father in Law isn’t super creepy, it won’t be a problem.  They have several months to get know each other.  Plan some casual events where the whole wedding party gets together.  Doesn’t have to be a big deal; can just be pizza and a movie at someone’s house, or whatever.

@akriegel24:  just don’t have a bridal party dance. it’s always sooo awkward, and i’ve hated doing it when i’ve been a bridesmaid. also between mother son dance, father daughter dance, and the couple’s first dance, i don’t think your guests are going to want to sit through another bridal party dance!

i think it’s cool he wants his dad – just cut the dance!

Is it more important to you to have a bridal party dance or more important that your fiance gets to pick his own groomsmen? Which will lead to fewer hurt feelings and less potential bitterness and resentment?
