Mrs. Espresso recently posted that they invited their wedding party to join them halfway through their first dance. Unlike Mrs Espresso, I love to dance, but, I HATE having all eyes on me, so I loved her idea!
(For the record, we’re really far away from our wedding, and this is totally me thinking ahead/over worrying, and I know that.)
Here’s the thing… our wedding party, as it currently stands, looks like it’ll be 2 married couples (yeah, I know! cool, right?), one engaged guy (P), a single guy (S), a single girl (K) and a lesbian in a long term committed relationship (F).
P, K, F and S don’t know each other, except that F and S both went to college with me, so they have met several times; none of the others have met.
Do you think it’s weird to ask our wedding party to dance with each other if they don’t really know each other/have significant others? I’m mostly concerned about P and F, P because his fiance tends to be the jealous type, and F because she’s kind of anti-men and I can’t imagine her dancing with some guy she doesn’t really know.
Do you think it’s asking too much for them to dance with each other for half a song? Or would it be better to ask them to bring a partner of their choice? That might be awkward for S and K, both of whom are coming from out of town (K is my cousin and won’t know any non-relatives) and probably won’t have dates with them.
Ultimately, I’ll ask them what they all think, but what would you do?
1. Married couples together, S&K together, P&F together
2. Married couples together, S&F together (since they know each other a little), P&K together
3. Married couples together, S&K together, P & F with their respective SOs (at least 2/3 of my relatives will freak out when they find out one of my best friends is a lesbian, but I’m not SUPER concerned, because I don’t think they’ll make a scene at the wedding, I’ll just have to hear about it for years to come)
4. Married couples together, S, K, P and F all choose a partner of their choice
5. Abandon the idea all together
