We’re not!  That’s b/c Fiance is shy and I don’t really care.  🙂

Can you still have a first dance to music over their regular sound system?

We’re not, for the same reason the previous poster stated. Fiance is really shy and breaks out into hives at the thought of people watching him dance.

Yeah, we didn’t do a dance either. Exactly: we don’t dance in “real” life, except silliness we don’t share with anyone besides each other. I didn’t miss it!

We wont. No way in hell would I ever have people stare at me on a dance floor. We wont have any dancing though, we’re just doing a dinner.

We kind of hated our first dance. I just thought it was kind of embarassing. And it wasn’t dark outside yet so it just seemed kind of weird. I could have skipped it.

We’re not doing a first dance either – neither of us is much of a dancer, and we decided it would be awkward and why do something at our wedding that is going to make us feel uncomfortable, you know?

I went to my friends wedding last year and her and her husband didn’t do a first dance or have any dancing at all. It just flowed right from the ceremony to the reception. I don’t think anyone even noticed. But me, I’m having the whole she-band. Well most of it. I love to dance and my fiance agreed to dance with me. Even though we’ve never danced together and have been together for 2.5 years now.

Hurray! I’m glad there are others out there. When I first told people we weren’t doing a dance floor, they were shocked. I don’t know why, since these are close friends who have never ever seen me dance. It’s because I don’t, and neither does fiance. Yay!

So glad to see that others aren’t having a set dance floor! We’re going for a more party atmosphere – our reception is being held in a private bar area of a nice beach restaurant (around 60 guests). Since the restaurant has live bands play on Fridays already, we don’t have to book a DJ or band. They said that sometimes they have dancing, depending on what kind of crowd it is. I figure if people want to dance, they can spill out to that area. Besides that, we just want a relaxed, casual atmosphere.

@WDWBride – good question! The last wedding I went to, they had a DJ and a dance floor, but it seemed like there wasn’t much time or good music to dance to. The wedding ceremony started at 4 and the reception was over by 9:30. I wonder if it just depends on the type of guests you have …
