    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.

    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.
