    That’s what we planned on doing. Luckily our 2 1/2 yr old daughter felt left out and came and joined for our dance. 🙂

    I’ve seen dance lessons backfire. I went to a wedding where the couple was obviously counting under their breath and dancing very stiffly. I would have preferred they just swayed in the middle of the dancefloor.

    We swayed and I loved it. 🙂  Do whatever you are most comfortable with!

    Overall I think that it’s totally fine for a couple to just sway on the dance floor. The moment is about the two of you so you shouldn’t feel pressured to make your dance into a spectacle that doesn’t really illustrate who the two of you are as a couple. If you’re feeling like you’d maybe like to be slightly more impressive, you could just go to one or two lessons and learn some basic steps. I think it would be a nice compromise:)

    I’m a big fan of swaying. I’m sure I’d mess it all up if I tried anything more complicated. Besides, I find swaying really romantic.

    If you have mixed feelings, I’m sure there are some simple instructional videos on youtube.
