Alternatives to mother/son dances?
My fiance and I always thought we wanted to skip the mother/son and father/daughter dance at the reception and go with a less traditional and more low-key function. When he told his mom this, she flipped out and was very upset that he didn't want to dance with her. Is this a reasonable request or are we just being mean?
Our goal was to keep this section of the reception short because there are other things we want to do, and neither of us particularly wants to have a solo dance with a parent.
Does anybody have an alternative suggestion or neat ideas so his mother won't feel left out, but we can still do something other than that nerve-racking solo dance? Please help!
