- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
I can’t remember where I read it (I don’t think it was here) but I read a post somewhere that was written by a woman who was going to be a bridesmaid in her friend’s wedding.
She was upset because the bride wanted the entire bridal party to dance with each other for one song at the wedding, and she didn’t want to dance with her groomsman counterpart. She felt uncomfortable dancing with anyone besides her husband.
Is it me, or is that strange? I don’t see how dancing with one guy for a four-minute song is such a big deal
Would you be uncomfortable?

I personally wouldn’t be that uncomfortable because I would have had a few drinks in me by the point. But I can see how some people find it uncomfortable. Dancing is not everyone’s cup of tea, you know? I’m not having a bridal party dance.

I’m not doing that, but at my MOH’s wedding when I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man, the whole bridal party joined towards the end of her first dance song w/ her husband. I didn’t mind.

We did it at my sister’s wedding and I didn’t mind at all, even with my (now ex) boyfriend there watching. It was just a basic slow dance that lasted all of 3 minutes with minimal touching besides holding hands.
I guess if you had religious convictions about touching another man I could see how it would be uncomfortable. Otherwise I say get over it and just dance 😛

I was in that situation once…and I didn’t mind at all.

I dont have an issue with it…what’s the harm? Personally I don’t get it. It’s just all for fun. I don’t get how there are girls/woman out there that believe that once you get married you can no longer have any contact with men (include looking at) and vice versa. Seriously, its not like dancing with a groomsman is going to end in an orgy!!
Besides you can always do the 6th grade dance arms on shoulders and rock from foot to foot.

I’d be fine with it, since getting my SO to dance at all is pretty much impossible!

I would be uncomfortable if I didn’t know my groomsman counterpart or if we weren’t friends, and I’m pretty sure Mr. HC would care too – but neither he nor I would care if he were a good friend.
