That’s a great idea to get everyone on the dance floor together!  Or if that’s too much, maybe just the bridal party could dance during the first dance?

I think having the whole bridal party out there is perfect.  Sometimes it takes a bit for guests to loosen up, but if all your guys and girls are having a great time out there… it’ll get everyone out of their chairs.  They can also just help usher people to the dance floor for dancing.

Perhaps you and your Fiance could start dancing, for just 20 seconds or so (that seems like very little, but will probably seem like a lot when you are out on the dance floor!) and then ask your bridal party to join. Depending on what you’re going to do after the first dance (eat dinner, or have you already eaten by this point and you’re going to go straight into the party?), you could ask all of your guests to join you for the last minute of the song. That way, all of your guests are on the dancefloor, and if your DJ puts on a fast song, everyone would start dancing! What a way to get the party started!

I agree with BeachBride.  For our first dance my husband and I danced alone for the first verse and then the DJ (as we had instructed) invited everyone (married or not) to join us on the dance floor.

It was actually really special to be in a crowd of our loved ones (see the pic of how it looked).
