Q: I’m close with both my dad and stepfather. How do I handle the fatherdaughter dance?
Every situation is different. If your father and stepfather are on good terms, sharing a shorter dance with each of them to two different songs played consecutively is a nice way to give equal attention. “If backto-back is not ideal, then split up the dances with the mother-son dance, or even have one before the first dinner course, one after,” suggests Lauren Fremont, owner of New York– and Paris-based Loli Events.
