I think I would feel the same if I was in your position. Is there another man in your family that you're very close to? Maybe a brother or an uncle? I was thinking maybe you could do a dance with them and it might not be as bad for you...
I also just thought of you doing a dance with your mom. It may seem a little weird but I think it would be cute and different. I just Googled it to see if others have done a Mother/Daughter dance and some have.
I don't really have much advice other than that. Maybe there's someone else here that has been in this situation before...

My husband's mother passed away several years ago, so we sort of had the reverse situation. I debated back and forth on whether I should do a father-daughter dance b/c I didn't want to risk upsetting my husband or his family (thinking it might draw more attention to his mother not being there). We discussed him doing a dance with his grandmother or his aunt, but he didn't really want to and in a way, that would make it more hurtful. In the end, I did a dance with my father but it wasn't an official "father-daughter dance." We didn't announce it or anything - we just asked the dj to play something appropriate and I danced with my father. A few other people were on the dance floor with us - which was actually more than okay b/c we both hate to be the center of attention.
Talk to your FI - maybe he doesn't really even want to do a mother-son dance anyway... or maybe he would be okay with just making sure to dance with his mom at some point during the reception... if you explain that it would make you more upset, I'm sure he'll want to find a way that you'd feel better about..
