    I'm debating this as well, I would like to do it, but I don't want all the attention on us.

      Maybe you could have a dance the 4 of you at the same time, to take away all eyes on you and your dad, and let you FI have his dance with his mom?

      I'm skipping the father / mother dances, solves it for us!
      The group dance is a great idea! No one gets hurt that way.

          I was married before and was very nervous to dance with my dad for the same reasons and my poor dad is not a very "spotlight" kind of person. He was so nervous he wanted to practice ahead of time and maybe get some lessons~LOL! Anyway, we did it and it wasn't that bad! It was awkward though but not too bad. Hope that helps This time I probably won't be able to because I don't think my parents are going to go!

            I would suggest taking a dance class together if possible with your father. Maybe work with your fiance and your dance instructor to pick out a song where you and your father can dance more casually and your FI and his mom can dance as well.

              Maybe do lessons together and bond? Make it less awkward?

                Id never even thought about this. However, we only have a very small wedding party, 6 in total so i wont even be having a first dance with my husband in the actual day. We will save that for out reception back in the UK. I am like you and dont have a touchy feely kind of relationship with my dad, anything like dancing would feel so weird for the both of us i think. The only way around that would be if i was drunk and then i wouldnt think anything of it. Shame its like that with our own father isnt it, but when its been like that for so many years you cant just change.

                  I think it would mean a lot to him if you did... even if everything isn't perfect,

                    I'm not doing one. Neither myself or my dad dance so it would be silly and awkward.

                      If you definately don't want to dance with your dad, that's your choice and there's nothing wrong with that.  No one should put you in a situation where you are uncomfortable.  That being said, don't ask your FI to do a faster dance with his mom.  I'm sure this is something very important to him (and his mom) and you don't want him to resent you.  This is a tough situation.  If it does turn into a problem I would just get through dancing for 3 minutes with your Dad (it really isn't torture!)
