I'm trying to find a happy medium here. My mom is li-vid at the idea of me having a father/daughter dance with my dad (divorced 20+ years ago, thinks he isn't a proper "representation" of my grandpa, etc). I think it would look incredibly strange to have my brother dancing with me or just a mother/son dance, because it would be all "Why isn't Nugget dancing with her dad? He's right over there." Plus, we've been building our relationship more over the last few years even though we weren't very close until then. I don't think my dad is expecting me to dance with him at the wedding, but he would be pleasantly surprised if I asked. My mom is walking me down the aisle. Noodle really wants to dance with his mom, so I'm not going to be able to cut out the parent dances altogether.
So, did anybody do some kind of alternative to the father/daughter dance? Maybe someone in my situation, with divorced parents and a dad invited to the wedding?
If I wanted to hear the pitter-patter of little feet, I'd put shoes on the cat.
