So… I do not have a relationship with my father meaning no father daughter dance is gonna happen which is SO ok. My fiance is going to dance with his mother (to a song that I find horrible, just sayin! That’s a whole different issue).
My question is, is it tacky to dance with my little brothers instead? I have 2, one will be 11 the other almost 14 and they are my everything! There’s a song that my Mother sent to me years ago, she said when she heard it it made her think of me. And now, when I play it I think of them. Maybe you’ve heard of it – "I Hope You Dance" by Leann Womack, it’s so sweet and special to me but how do I dance with both of them and make it look nice, seamless? Or do I have to scratch the idea?
I really like it but is it silly?

I dont think its silly at all, if you and your brothers are close then it totally makes sense. I wont have a father daughter dance either. Instead I am dancing with my mom to Stevie Wonder’s "Isn’t she lovely" and about half way through the song we are going to invite all the mothers and daughters to dance with us. I say go for it!

I think that’s a really sweet idea! I would just start dancing with one and then have the other cut in about halfway through the song.

I think that unique touches that work for the bride, and actually make her day are the ingredients for a wonderful wedding. Dancing with your little brothers will probably be so heartwarming and will be a fantastic memory. Do it, don’t scratch the idea.

I’m not going to have a father-daughter dance either. I haven’t spoken to my father in over 12 years. (I don’t even know if he knows I’m getting married!) I debated the brothers as well, I have 2 younger ones also, but I opted to have them escort my mom down the aisle during the ceremony instead. I’m dancing with my uncle, who has been a father-figure to me my whole life. I say do what suits you, it’s your wedding and your day!

Thanks guys! I really appreciate the replies! I’m also glad to hear others in similar situations. I will dance with my lil bro’s. I’ll have one cut in like caitlanc suggested.
Chickasif I love your idea, you and your mother will have tons of fun! Enjoy!
Miss Snowflake that’s also a good idea. I’m gonna have my Mother walk me down the aisle.
