Me!  I was actually contemplating posting something like this the other day.  Our families aren’t really serious but part of the reason we decided on a smaller wedding (besides budget) is that we couldn’t picture more than like 10% of our friends and family using the dance floor/photo booth if we had one and even then there’s a chance it would be less.  I see all these pictures of people dancing and having fun and honestly, I’m really hoping our dinner reception pictures don’t make us look boring.

i think a lot of this might depend on the breakdown of your guest list.  if you have lots of younger people in their 20s and 30s, i think you are going to have a very different vibe than if most of your guests are older aunts and uncles.

I was kind of disappointed at our wedding b/c my husbands entire side of the family and all their friends did not dance one song at all at our wedding, but they are real “keep to themselves” kind of people, so I didn’t expect them to dance, but I was surprised that nobody even danced any of the slow songs.  

My family was out there shaking it though! Keepin the party alive ๐Ÿ™‚

ME!  We are having a Destination Wedding in HI…  We invited about 140 people, knowing that most wouldnt be able to cme.  We are 30 and I still didnt expect many of our friends to shell out the money for a full on vaca trip.  As my RSVPs roll in, Im noticing that it is gonna be immediate family, family friends (60+ yrs old) and maybe 5-10 friends our age.  I dont even know if I should book a DJ at this point.

We fortunately had a good mix of guests, I’d say the majority of family didn’t dance, but our friends did. Also we had a small ballroom and dance floor so it probably made it look more lively.

When we got our wedding video, I was surprised at how many people were sitting most of the time.

@Quietserenity:

I am sure it will be great!  After your ceremony they will surely have conversations, and mingle, and have yummy things to eat!  ๐Ÿ™‚

I am totally in the same boat.  We have 25 people, most older and not real party people.  Mr. M and I are not real party people either.  I am totally on the wall if we should have a DJ to keep the party going or just do an MP3 player because most people won’t dance anyway.

@meerkat: pls keep me posted on what you decide to do and how it works! I feel like our situations are pretty similar!

@pebble: I will. We have 9 weeks *gulp* so hopefully we will have a decision soon.

Wow, I never thought of this before, but I think I agree! My side of the family, esp, is pretty conservative.

This is why I’ve already told my bridesmaids that it’s in their “job description” (kidding!) that they and their dates are on the dancefloor all night! ๐Ÿ™‚

I feel the opposite. My guests are dancers and I’m not, so I took away their dancing.
