My FMIL and my fiancé really want to have a dinner reception with dancing between each course.
Im not at all against the idea, as I think it would liven people up pretty quickly, but I just can’t picture it.
Has anybodo had this kind of recpetion arrangement? How did it work out for you?

- Wedding: May 2012 - Salvage One, Chicago
I didn’t have it myself, but I’ve been to a wedding in this style. It was kind of strange going into it because we didn’t know before hand, but it was kind of fun, although I do remember thinking, ‘how long does this last?’ I enjoyed it, but it seemed almost like ‘forced dance time,’ too.
The wedding I was at also had a TON of food, so nearer the final courses dancing wasn’t the first thing I wanted to do 😉 It would be a good way to break the dinner up and give guests a chance to talk more, have other speeches or your first dance, the cake cutting, etc.
Hope that helps a little, from a guest-perspective 🙂

I live on the east coast and never heard of this. I love to dance and tend to be a pretty laid back guest. Yet I be annoyed if I was forced to get on the dance floor between each course, and I also would be worried how that would effect the dancing later on. It just seems like a big inconvenience to the guest not to mention you may have several grumpy people who are ready to eat and won’t take to kindly to having a dinner spread out that long.
