Honestly, I’ve only been to one wedding where there wasn’t dancing (it was a super religious couple) and after the meal, everyone pretty much left because there wasn’t anything else to do.   If you want your guests to stay through the evening and have a good time, I would at least have music and a space cleared for the dance floor.  If no one wants to dance, so be it, but at least they will have the option.

I honestly think I would be miserable at a wedding with no dancing.  I really enjoy dancing though.

I think your guests will prefer dancing.  However, it is your day.  If you don’t want dancing, then don’t have it.  It shouldn’t matter what is traditional or expected, it should matter what you and your Fiance see as your “vision” of the perfect day!

Yeah, do what will make you happy.  Your guests will just have to deal with it lol.  I also have no intention of having dancing at my wedding.

I’ve been thinking about this as well, since SO isn’t really a dancer either.

Also, dancing at weddings usually feels a little awkward and forced anyway…(for us at least)

I’m considering a Sunday brunch-type of reception, which may end after less time but at least people would be there to celebrate with us and share in our special day. Plus, we love brunch.

Have you come to a decision about this yet?

Dancing is never required and many weddings skip it and guests still manage to have a great time. Do what works best for you and don’t let anyone bully you into anything.

Well I think you should do what you want… but I would be SO bummed if there was no dancing. It’s my favorite part of attending weddings. We’re really good dancers and just love to dance!
