At my sisters wedding during their first dance (like half way through) the bridal party joined in. Is that what you meant?

Idk I had never heard of it yet had it at my wedding because the wedding planners said it was a good way to get people onto the dance floor after dinner. And it did work for that. She said specifically it was a CRAZY DANCE to hopefully make people get over any embarrassment about looking silly on the dance floor, haha.

@Liss13:  I was in one before. It wasn’t the worst moment of my life.

@Liss13:  I think this used to be more common before.  I know for my brothers wedding 10 years ago we did this.  I am not doing it at ours.

Yes one of my friends at her wedding did the “thriller” dance by Michael Jackson. Her (the bride) and the bridesmaids.

Lol at my wedding however, we don’t have a scheduled time to do a dance, however whenever my friends (SIL included) go out and drink we end up line dancing to Copperhead Road by Steve Earle, so we plan on doing that at the reception just for fun and not as a “hey sit and watch us” type thing

I’ve seen that, but not recently. 


It seems super awkward though since bridal party “couples” usually aren’t couples in real life.

At DH’s best friend’s wedding they did it.  The bride wanted all the bridal party to dance with their counterparts (and not with their dates) and there was a revolt so they ended up having each person dance with their dates.

It was awkward because everyone was watching about a dozen people dance (it was a slow dance), and the guests weren’t much for dancing so it didn’t inspire them to shake it afterwards.

I think it depends, but I doubt it will have much in the way of getting everyone out there to dance.
