I have never been to a wedding where there was a mother/son dance. I know it is done, but obviously not everywhere. I would do the father/daughter dance then move on.

I can’t help you at all because I’m in the same boat. I have no one to dance with, and I don’t want to just have a mother/son dance and nothing else, so I suggested we not do either. Fiance is okay with it, but we haven’t mentioned it to his mom yet…ugh. I love his mom, just I’m afraid that it’s going to turn into something.

@huntingirl:  I agree with this. My dad was not in my life, though he really wanted to be. He passed away four years ago, and it breaks my heart that he won’t be there with me.

Dance with your father, and if your Fi’s mother gets over her drama and wants her dance back, make sure the DJ has the song and is willing to make a last-minute change in plans. 

No one will think it “weird” that you have a dance with your father while your Mr does not have a dance with his mother.

Do the father daughter dance, it will mean a lot to your father.. mother etc. Have your father halfway through call your Fiance over and hand you off to him to finish the dance.. This way he is included in your special dance with your father.

@Vorpalette if you love his mother can you do a special dance with her?

I fully believe you should do the father/daughter dance for your parents. I have never seen a mother/son dance and IMO it is not a common enough tradition for you to pull out of a father/daughter dance (which is a very common tradition) over your FI’s mom. I personally don’t think the two should have to do with each other and you should honor your father and do this regardless of the situation with your FI’s parents.
