We don't do that in the UK there is only the dance of the bride and groom and we aren't even doing that.
I mean the way I feel about FMIL FI wouldn't trust me not to load up "who let the dogs out" when it was her turn lmao
Seriously tho if you don't want to do it don't its nothing to do with anyone else.
I think my aunt is seriously pissed that i'm not getting her to walk me down the aisle but i'm asking my friend's husband! In all honestly I'll get my friend to do it but only because she won't let me run for the hills lmao
Upshot is do what YOU want screw everyone else if they are upset they can suck it up and deal with it, the wedding is not about them its about you and FI x

I want to dance with my Mom, but I don't want his feelings to be hurt. (although I don't think he has a right to feelings right now, esp. because I had found out about his wedding through rumors and had to confront him about it. he should be happy I'm even inviting him.) I think before the dance with my Mom is over, I can have him tap in to dance. So that way I can dance with both of them. Also because I want my DF to have the chance to dance with both of his parents too.
I believe we're going to just share our dance, meaning I'll dance with my Mom (and then Dad) at the same time DF will dance with his Mom (and then Dad) all at the same time to the same song. Then we can have another song to follow for us to switch and dance with our new in laws. What do you ladies think? Too confusing??

My mom is walking me down the aisle by herself because she deserves that recognition and I am going to tell her thatâ€¦ and I also want to do a special dance with her just her and while I dance with her my FI can also dance with his mom â€“ because shes also an amazing woman â€“ I donâ€™t mind sharing my songâ€¦ and screw traditionsâ€¦ thatâ€™s all the dancing im doingâ€¦ our first dance, and the dedications to mothers danceâ€¦ what do you guys think?

I am in the same boat - I am having my mom walk me down the aisle as my dad is pretty much non-existent in my life. I don't even think he knows my FIs name. However, I have invited him to the wedding.
I wasn't even going to mention it to him but the other day I was told that I should tell him that he isn't walking me down the aisle. I haven't spoken with him in over a year, do I really have to have that conversation? Think it would be horrible if I just sent him an email? Any idea as to how I should word it? I just sort of assumed that he would know he wouldn't be walking me...

Hey Kelly - it's tough. I was worried about the same thing but since then I've found out that my father isn't even coming so I won't have to have that conversation anymore. My father has a lot of pride and is very much about a show. I'm sure if he was coming he'd assume he'd get the honor. That said, I'd just suggest you do say something sooner than later even if you assume he doesn't plan to. He may feel differently and it would probably be best to get it out there well in advance. I personally wouldn't tell him in an email that's totally up to you. Good luck.
