I've posted on some of the other boards and realize my questions coule probably go on the "Reception Ideas" boards but since we're not doing thing totally traditionally I thought I'd try here first. Thanks for your thoughts!
Background: wedding this summer, about 90 guests, wedding & reception on a farm, bought all our own plates, glasses, silverware (so much cheaper!), dancing will be contra dancing (live caller & band)
Since we're not doing "traditional" dancing, what are your thoughts on the "first dances"? FI and I aren't the type to make up a funny dance, and I'm not sold on the whole father-daughter/mother-son dances...nothing against my dad or FMIL (they're both great!) but the traditional dances seem...not us. Any alternative thoughts? Especially considering we're having a contra dance band...maybe a short, whole family (both FI and mine) contra dance?
