- Wedding: October 2011
Alright, so here’s the issue. I used to dance all the time, lots of west coast swing, lots of latin dance, lots of ballroom. I used to go out to social dances three times a week. I haven’t had time or opportunity since moving from the area I grew up in, about two years ago…but I still ache to dance, and especially to have that “first dance” at my wedding. The thing is, Fiance doesn’t dance at. all.
He is perfectly willing to learn, but we’ve been in an LDR on opposite coasts for the entire relationship (friends 7 years, couple 2), so there’s not been an opportunity yet. He’s moving here three months before the wedding, and will be in the midst of starting a new job, and we’ll be apartment-hunting, so as much as he would like to have time for lessons, I don’t think he will.
We’re having some financial issues working dancing into the reception, anyway. Should I just let it go, or should I lower my expectation and just do more of a “highschool prom” kind of slowdance for the first dance? Ugh.
