I don’t have a FFIL; FI’s father passed away when he was in HS 🙁 It’s sad because I’ve only seen pics of him and he and my Fiance look *so much* alike.  From what I’ve heard of him I’m convinced we would’ve hit it off.

Unfortunatley, my Father-In-Law died this past Valentine’s Day.  I included an item of his in my bouquet to honor him.

My Future Father-In-Law passed away of lung cancer (not a smoker) two years ago.  I was fortunate enough to meet him; he was a wonderful man.  We will find a way to honor is memory during our wedding.  We may also give a donation to cancer reseach on behalf of our guests in lieu of favors.

My Father-In-Law died many years ago, so I never knew him. But I have a SFIL.

I am fortunate enough to have an amazing Future Mother-In-Law, but Father-In-Law passed away when my Fiance was only 2 in a horrific car accident 🙁 He doesn’t remember him much either, but I do love hearing stories about him from FI’s mother or aunts and seeing pictures, because I can see so much of Fiance in his father. So in an indirect way, I feel like I know Father-In-Law, and I’m sure I would have loved him.

@beenonymous: My dad passed away when I was young, so my Fi won’t have a father in law. I wish they could have met, because I know my dad would have loved him. My Fiance actually reminds me a lot of my dad.

But anyways, I just wanted to comment on the part about the father/daughter dance. You shoudl talk to your Fiance and see how he feels about it.  Even though it breaks my heart that I won’t have that special dance, I would never want to take away from the mother/groom dance. It’s really important to him and his mom so I want them to have that.

Good luck in whatever you choose.
