Probably a very niche question.. did any brides struggle with an expectation to dance at their own wedding? My fiancé’s fam is more liberal than mine; apparently it’ll be awkward if I don’t..

Relative of mine was in a similar situation... As long as you're upfront and clear that you won't be participating, they should understand and it shouldn't be any issue. Not to sound crass, but if you not dancing is a big issue for them, then maybe think about who you're about to spend the rest of your life with?

If you’re not comfortable with it then don’t and your fiancé should understand that

My family is much more liberal than my wife’s, they were very clear on certain expectations they had and things they were not comfortable with. Was it ideal for us? No. But, better to be up front and firm about it and be flexible on other things. Very normal for their to be massive disagreements on how to execute a wedding in our culture, don’t stress it too much

My cousin had this exact same problem, at the time of execution she snuck her way to sit down with her family and pretend to be busy there. Make it look like you’re having a wardrobe malfunction or something urgent care up.

Out of curiosity what ethnicity are you and your fiance? I think South Asian weddings are easier to get out of dancing vs. some Arab weddings can feel awkward if either the groom or bride aren't dancing (essentially because it's a nonstop dance party as soon as you enter the hall lol 💃🏻🕺🏻). I agree your fiance should understand and help manage the concerns; I can tailor my advice once I know more about the setting ☺️

Depends on the music for me

It’s not like she doesn’t respond but I get the feeling that she’s not into me as much as I’m into her. Thoughts?
