The big question of the day for me is…. dance or no dance at the reception? I’m not fond of wedding dances, none of the wedding dances I’ve been to in recent years have been fun. I really like the idea of just hanging out after the wedding. We have a patio reserved lookin’ at the beautiful stars, and folks can go to the bar. Or, if they’re pooped they can go to wherever they’re staying (it’s a destination wedding at a lodge in the Black Hills). I just don’t like the idea of a dance. Have you ever been to a wedding without a dance?? Will I totally regret not having a dance? Let me know ladies, can’t wait to hear your opinions.

I’ve never been to a wedding without dancing but I have been to some that have more/less than others.
What if you just played nice music, had some small space if people really wanted to dance or stand and mingle and let the party decide from there.
I do have to say that I really valued dancing with my husband and with my father.

I’ve been to one wedding without music/dancing and it felt like something was missing to me. You know your crowd better than I do, theres no way i could ever get away without dancing (nor would I want to).

Shameful confession: What I love about weddings most is A) cake, and B) dancing. I can’t tell you the last time I went out dancing with girlfriends or whatever, so weddings are totally my excuse to have some fun on the dance floor! I’ve never been to a wedding without a dance and I’d likely wear my pouty face if I found out there wasn’t any dancing at a wedding (or if the DJ was terrible).

I’m fairly indifferent when it comes to dancing. Usually I have different tastes in music than my relatives/friends who have gotten married so far and their dance music is not my dance music. Of course part of that is my personal space issues (I like my bubble).
I would have some music playing in the background but if you don’t feel drawn to having a dance, don’t feel pressured to have one.
