@JesikerK: It’s very normal for the mother of the groom to dance with her son, I’m sure nearly all of the girls here are having it at their wedding or have been to a wedding where it was done.

I feel like we need some backstory…why don’t you like her? Does your Fiance have a problem with her as well? Because it’s really the groom’s decision whether this takes place. Just as he doesn’t make the decisions about your father/daughter dance, you don’t get to make the final call on the mother/son one. I see in a previous post you called her your ‘monster-in-law’ but said she was excited for the wedding, so I feel a bit lost.

We had planned to do this but at the last minute, Darling Husband canceled. I still danced with my dad. In his culture such dances are not normal and he’s not a big dancer so he asked his mom if she would mind skipping it and since it was not normal for her she agreed. I agree with PP it’s his decision, not yours in the end.

Fiance wants to do that. I think I’ve seen it happen during the same dance/at the same time as the father/daughter dance. But Fiance wants his own dance, and I guess for us the only reason not to is cuz I’m afraid that having too many “special” dances might get boring. But yeah, it’s really his decision! (in my case, he hardly has any opinions in the planning, so I’m definitely goign to let him have this one!)

Mothers often dream of dancing with their sons on his wedding day, and I dont think that’s a memory you should take away because you “don’t like her”. She is your family now. My future Mother-In-Law would be heartbroken. I also think 5 years down the road you may regret not having a first dance, but that’s just my opinion.

I agree it is up to your FH, if no one else is dancing it seems a bit out of place, I would polietly tell her togther as a united front if he agrees that you aren’t going to have any dances.
