Ok first off. I LOVE dancing! Started when I was 3 years old and my favorite is swing dancing. I would do it during my entire reception if everyone knew how and the elders wouldnt fall dead by the end of the night. lol. Anywho though I was thinking…During the first dance, how do you dance??? Is it the traditional one arm around the back and the other holding your partners hand? Or do you go old school and do it high school style and mans hands on hips and girls around guys neck??? I am actually really really debateing this in my head so give me some idea girls! What do you think you’ll be doing?????

i think you and your SO should dance how you want to (or can!) I think its so cool when couples who can actually dance, (salsa, swing, or ballroom..whatev ) DANCE!!! Its fun and entertaining for everyone!!!
Fiance and I are not dancing inclined so will will be resorting to the “high school sway” along with the holding our hands with his hand on my waist. ha! Boring to watch for our guests but owell! we are both kinda shy that way so we just want to do our sway and then be done with it… its more just a nice moment for us rather than an entertaining one.

I’m so impressed by people that can dance, that I LOVE seeing it at weddings! I think you should do whatever is fun and fitting for YOUR first dance!

Fiance & I went to a wedding when we first started dating, and I drunkenly yelled at him for slow dancing with one arm behind my back and the other holding my hand but pulled into his chest instead of held out. I told him that was reserved for a romantic first-dance at my wedding. He remembers that and has promised that’s how we’ll dance at our wedding=)
If you and your fiance can both cut a rug, I think you should DEFINITELY do a little swing routine for your first dance! I read about a wedding where the couple offered a quick swing lesson during the reception so everyone could join them for a song. It sounded SOOOOO cute!
