    I think most weddings have more than one dance, but I’m looking at it as it will give some time for my new husband and I to reconnect amongst the chaos.

    If you want a second couples dance go for it!

    Just you guys are dancing at the beginning and the end?

    @BeeG35: It’s not weird or rude or anything like that, but it just strikes me as a tad pointless.  I don’t see the purpose or added value of the last dance being just the bride and groom.  Why exclude anyone from the last dance?  If others want to dance, I’d let them dance too.  It’s your wedding though, so you should do what makes you happy.

    I certainly wouldn’t be weirded out or offended or anything, but I guess I kind of don’t get the point? I mean when you’re already so strapped for time, I wouldn’t be throwing in unnecessary activities. Unless you guys are stellar dancers or are learning ballroom for the wedding, or somthing like that. I’d just socialize with guests while eating cake and then have someone annouce the exit and leave. You don’t need a “last dance”. I honestly don’t even remember what the DJ played for our last dance!

    I find it weird to have two bride and groom only dances at a wedding. But that’s just my opinion.

    It’s your wedding if that’s what you want then you should do it.  However, you should make both dances no more than 3 minutes – other than that people will get bored.   You can also dance the last song for the first minute by yourself and then maybe have the coordinator invite anyone who would like to join to the dance floor.

    My husband and I did two dances, but we had a full reception with dancing.  We did the traditional slow dance when we did our entrance and then did a salsa dance to get the dance party started!

    I’d just do the last dance as your first dance.  People don’t need to watch you dance 2 x that is awkward.

    My husband and I danced a last-dance together with no one in the room but the DJ and photographer, while everyone was outside getting their bubbles ready (or in your case, sparklers). It was probably my favorite moment of the wedding!
