I’m getting married on June 9th, my fiance and I always used to joke around doing the lift from dirty dancing. My mom absolutely loves Dirty Dancing, and Patrick Swayze was her man lol. So we decided we were going to take dance lessons to learn the dance & surprise everybody. We started taking classes in February, and we only had 6 lessons. Honestly if you want to fall in love with your significant other more, I definitely recommend taking dance lessons with them! Its just so intimate and fun. Anyway, we learned the dance, his solo & then the end part where he has the people dancing behind him we are actually going tomorrow night to take that lesson with 12 of our friends.
We practice at least once a day, and I’m not going to lie, we slacked off for a bit and went like 3 weeks without practicing lol. We just moved and were getting settled in, plus have a 5 month old. But once we did practice again it just clicked and came back to us immediately. I definitely recommend it! And if you have no idea what kind of dance you want to do, they can help you. Even if you come up with an idea.
I just searched for dance studios around us and found a ballroom dance studio near by, we had a free 30 minute “trial” i guess you could say, and that’s when we decided on her. ☺

I think weddings that emphasize the “show” aspect are less authentic and gracious than simple, heartfelt receptions. And couples dong a “first dance” arent traditional everywhere, depends on your culture and age. Anyway, I thought family dances (father -daughter, etc) were a social signal that the dance floor is open, I dont know when and why they became entertainment where guest are expected to freeze in place and observe.
I guess that symbolizes my idea of dull weddings, that the more “entertainment” planned for guests, the more stiff and predictible the event.
Unscripted wedding events are more memorable than the line of performances in a standard big white wedding such as the announcement of the new mr and mrs, the aforementioned dance, the cake cutting, etc.
