My FI has recently told me he would like to do a first dance. This is something we initially agreed on not doing as I don't like being spotlighted and don't enjoy dancing. (Slow dancing will be okay though) initially we agreed to have zero dancing.
However, I know my dad really wants to do a daddy/daughter dance so I figure we should just go ahead and do that as well as mother/son.
My problem lies in the fact that if these dances "open the dance floor" for my guests, would it be strange that I wouldn't dance at all?
My wedding is small-22 guests. It wouldn't take that long to mingle and make sure I get to talk to everyone. I'm not against having a dance floor. I'm against people trying to drag me onto it when I honestly don't enjoy dancing. (Every wedding, someone tries to drag me out. And every wedding I do for like a song and then sit back down)
I liked the idea of doing the dances between cocktail hour and dinner as maybe that doesn't open the dance floor. But then am I expected to have dancing later?
I don't want to tell FI we can't have a first dance or disappoint my dad and his mom. Or my guests for that matter.
I just hate dancing!
