Do Vietnamese people typically dance at weddings? The reason I asked is, my husband (who is Vietnamese) and I just got married 10 days ago. 75% of our guests were Vietnamese. At our wedding everyone but my husband’s parents, his aunt and uncle and their children (who were in the wedding) left after dinner or our first dance. I wasn’t offended at all but was curious is this was common in the Vietnamese culture? We also purchased sparklers for the guest to light as we left but everyone but 10 people left before we did, lol.

@greenidlady: We had a bunch of Vietnamese guests at our wedding since my husband’s best friend who was the best man at the wedding is Vietnamese. They all were dancing like crazy!

@Beeatch: yeah, that seemed to be the trend, which was fine by me, I was ready to call it an early night.
@SnoopDog: Yeah, I suppose situations can vary.

I think it depends on how “westernized” they are. About one-third of the people at my sister’s wedding were asian, and a lot of them danced – even the older ones! But they’ve lived in the U.S. for a long time.

I’m Asian, and yes, it depends on how western they are. My parents have been in America for as long as I been alive and refuses to dance. They left right after dinner at our reception. I wasn’t offended because that’s just how they are :).
