So I don’t want to have a Father-Daughter dance. It just..isn’t my Dad and I. I don’t think my Dad has ever danced a day in his life and I don’t particularly enjoy it either. Also, I am just as close with my Mom as my Dad and I find it unfair to have this whole dance dedicated to him and nothing for her.
Sooo, my idea is to just scrap the Father-Daughter dance and do a little speech. A speech where I thank both of my parents for everything.
Do you all think this okay? Or unacceptable?

I think a speech is totally fine, but if you’re close with your dad and just skipping it since it’s not traditionally you two, I’d ask him first. He may have really been looking forward to it. You can always swap in your mom halfway to honor them both. I think either of your options works well, but I’d check with him first if you’re close.

@indibee: Yeah, I think I might just ask him, I doubt he will have an issue, but I guess we will see haha

If you’re okay with it and you think you’re dad will be, too, then I say go for scrapping it. Do what you’re comfortable with – it’s your wedding!

Do whatever you want since it;s your wedding. The dances are not required and no one will miss them.

I had both my parents walk me down the aisle because I figured they both raised me equally, so I get where your coming from.
I say it’s your wedding so do what you feel.
Neither my father or I are big dancers. I asked him what he thought and we both felt more comfortable by leaving the father daughter dance out. Wasn’t a big thing in the least.
