I’m not a big dancer.  I’ve gotten more into it over the years as I’ve gotten older and started caring less about looking stupid!  My fiance is REALLY not a big dancer!  I’m sure we will spend a lot of time mingling rather than dancing.  As long as everyone’s having fun I’m thrilled  Don’t stress!

I think that’s fine! Your guests will dance and do whatever they want and there will always be someone taking a break from dancing for you to mingle with.

I’m not a dancer at all and was mortified at the thought of dancing in front of my new in-laws. Honestly, when we got to the reception, I didn’t care and danced the night away. I had so much fun. You never know, you could surprise yourself.

I’m not a dancer – and I don’t think most people coming to our wedding are.   We are setting up Spotify or an iPod playlist of music and playing it through a Bose bluetooth box.  I’ll have everything separated by cermony, dinner, dance music though.  We plan on a first dance though.

I am not a big dancer at all – I never dance at weddings unless I am super drunk, which I will not be at our wedding. Here are a few things we’ve done or I’ve thought of:

1. While I don’t like to dance at other people’s weddings, I DO think it will be more fun for me at our wedding where I know everyone and am comfortable with those people. In other situations I’m usually not part of the “main” crowd and just have a few people I know.

2. We are incorporating non-dancing entertainment because of my experience of usually leaving early since I am bored/feel like a party pooper from not dancing. We are having a photobooth, a lounge area, and a games area (for adults) with Wii Sports and a Giant Jenga game.

3. Fiance and I are taking dance lessons for our first dance. We aren’t doing anything crazy or choreographed, but we are both sucky dancers and our song doesn’t lend itself to the awkward sway. The dance lessons have been really fun and will make our first dance much more comfortable.

Im not engaged yet, but I can’t picture myself doing much more than a few slow dances.  Although, they might be able to talk me into dancing to a song or two with the little kids who would be in the bridal party if it would make them happy…  I don’t really dance… ever.

I suck at dancing. I wasn’t able to spend much time on the dance floor bc I was mingling, but once it got to the point where everyome was drunk and dancing I found it very convienient that I couldn’t dance that well in my dress. I had a big, white, poofy excuse to just stand there while eveeyone else danced. It was a BLAST.

I’m not a big dancer either, so I know where you’re coming from.  As long as you’re enjoying yourself, that’s all that matters.  Some of my guests will have no problem getting on the dance floor on their own, but others like me will be content mingling and catching up with each other.  I would recommend having some non-dancing activities available though. We’re doing some yard games at our reception (it’s an outdoor reception).

I don’t dance either.  I mean, I cannot dance.  I danced my butt off until 3am the night of our wedding!  We didn’t rent a dance floor (I figured it would be a waste, and still think it would have been, the floor in there was pefectly fine!), but we had an open area and music, and we all danced! 

I even danced at the club we went to after the reception.  It was so much fun!  I’ll probably never do it again, but don’t regret a second of it.
