My father passed away several years ago, and I was not close to him to start with. I am not close with my mom either and woudn’t want her to walk me down the aisle (lot of family drama inserted here:() My fiance wants to do a mother son dance and has the song and everything. That’s well and good for him but I am very confused. I don’t know what to do, should I do a dance with my sisters and mon to make it not uncomfortable? I also don’t like “we are family” (bad memories with this song) Any suggestions??!! Help!!!!

Just let him do his Mother Son dance and thats it 🙂 You don’t have to dance with anyone. Let him and his mother pick the song they want to dance to.

You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. They can have their dance and that’s it. With everything else that happens during a reception, people won’t notice anyway.

My parents are both deceased, and I left it up to my husband if he wanted to do a mother/son dance. He didn’t end up doing one, but I wouldn’t have cared either way. As jenter said, with everything else going on, no one will notice if there’s a mother/son dance but no father/daughter dance. If it really matters to you – if you will feel left out if your husband has a family dance and you do not – you should talk to him about your feelings and figure out what works best for the two of you.

Honestly, I think it is stranger if you do a dance with sisters/mother as opposed to none at all….(unless you were already planning on doing a family dance) And ofcourse it is still appropriate for the groom to dance with his mother. No one will think it is odd as long as you don’t.
