    Personally, I think this is a great idea! Just make sure you have a big enough dance floor that there is room for people to start dancing around them 🙂

    I have mixed feelings about performances at weddings. For instance, I recently watched that show, Four Weddings on TLC and there was a (I think) Brazilian/American girl who had Carnival Dancers at her reception doing the Samba. I thought it was cool since that is such a part of her culture.

    If this is something that truly is a reflection of you and your Fiance, I say go for it. And I don’t think it matters that there are going to be other generations who might not be into it. If you both are, that’s all that matters.

    Personally, I’m not a fan of hired performers at weddings.  There is a huge difference between a hired DJ playing music and hired break dancers out on your dance floor.  As long as you DJ is playing good music, people don’t need break dancers to get them out on the dance floor.

    I think it would be FUN and definitely unexpected. Since you’re worried about your older Aunts and your parents and such, maybe talk to the DJ so he sets it up in a way that pleasantly surprises your crowd, but doesn’t SHOCK them.

    I’m all about making your wedding personal and if breakdancing is your thing, then go for it!  And I wouldn’t worry too much about how the older set will handle it, I’ve noticed that people tend to chill out at weddings.  And if that’s not reassuring, make sure to seat them away from the speakers!

    Do it!  I think it’s a great idea!

    On a side note, the key to getting guests motivated to dance is for YOU and Fiance to dance like crazy and personally encourage others to do the same.  Darling Husband and I danced like fools during introductions, the cake cutting, and every moment we were near the dance floor.  We also told each person, as we went table to table at dinner, that we wanted to see them on the dance floor, where we spent the majority of the evening.  The DJ told us he had never done a wedding with so much dancing.

    When guests see the bride and groom dancing like nobody’s watching (even though everyone IS watching), they feel comfortable letting lose and having fun.  I’m sure breakdancers set the same mood.  Enjoy!
