My mother would like to...

have a dance with FI. I'm not going to tell my mom no... she can do what she wants but should this be after the father-daughter, mother-son dances (before we serve dinner) or should I throw it in during the dollar dances or during a slow song and have the DJ announce this is a special song for the MOTB and FI?? 
FYI: The song is Mama's Song by Carrie Underwood... if that helps... I know it's kind of backwards since it's a daughter talking to her mom but my mom truly believes I am so lucky to have FI (and vise versa of course haha)

    i would throw in in during another time. Would FI mother be mad if your mom did this dance? I dont think I would let my mom dance with my FI Right after his mom danced with her. I think that is something kind of exciting to look forward to you know I get to dance with my dad one last time, and he gets to dance with his mom. truthfully I wouldnt want to hurt his mom feeling....

    Can you compromise and just throw it in during regular dancing and have the DJ ay "this was a special request from the bride's mother.."
    that way it doesn't take away from the mother/son formal dance, but your mom still gets to dance with him?

    <div>I would do this. Typically there is only 3 spotlight dances (first dance, father-daughter, mother-son), anymore and guests will get board.</div>

    I agree, anymore than 3 spotlight dances and I'm bored to tears.  Honestly, I'm bored to tears by the end of the 3rd dance =]  I'd just have it as a special request later on in the night.

    Agreed with PP.  Wait until the middle of the reception and have the DJ announce it as a "special request".
