Soooo my fiance's mom (and dad, for that matter) is/are most likely NOT attending our wedding or reception...very long and emotional story, but it involves cultural issues, and that she is just crazy and totally non-supportive of us for a variety of reasons. Our wedding coordinator asked me today about a traditional mother/son dance for him, and I need some advice! He has an aunt that he is very close to, but I'm not 100% sure she'll even be at the wedding becasue of his mother (they are sisters and his mom is extremely manipulative...). Her daughter (my fiance's cousin), is also very close to him (practically raised him and is a bit older than we are) and she will definitely be at the wedding. OR, he could dance with my mom (she has already said she would like that if that's what he wanted).
Any thoughts? Has anyone run into this issue and if so, how was it handled? I think we'd be fine to not do the traditional "mother-female relative/son" dance if it stepped on toes (no pun intended!), but I kinda just want things to be equal and for him to have a chance to have that experience. We have only casually discussed it a while ago, and I don't get the feeling that he feels too strongly about it.
Thanks for your help!
