This is kind of a silly question, but I might as well put it out there!
My dress is pretty full, with pickups through the skirt (though I will probably nix the extra tulle underneath to take it down a little). I’m not exactly sure how it will work when we go to slow dance. It’s not super stiff so Fiance could easily hold me close, but then the skirt would get scrunched between us, and possibly it could trip me up because it would get pushed to the floor. I certainly don’t want to dance circa grade 7 school dances (you know what I’m talking about, far apart, with arms straight), but how do we know what will work (and look good in pictures) if Fiance doesn’t get to see me in the dress until the day of?

For dresses that are more on the ballgown side of things, I would imagine you may need to dance more formally–its not 7th-grade style, think more like ballroom dancing style (remember Dirty Dancing: "This is my space, this is your space"?). Your left arm on his shoulder should be extended & firm, slightly rounded as if holding a really large beach ball at shoulder-heigth…. you could learn a really basic waltz-type step… or just kinda mill around in circles-ish
at least, that’s what I would do–

Thanks, I’ll talk to Fiance about it, and try to remember to account for the dress when we practice. I love my dress, but I’m wondering about it’s get-down-and-boogeyness… as much as I want to wear it for as long as possible, I may have to get a reception dress that’s more danceable…
