If you figure it out, tell my FH, I’m the bad dancer of the two of us. I’d LIKE to dance, but I have no idea what I’m doing and I’m a huge klutz. It’s a little embarassing because my dad is actually a decent dancer so I’m gonna look dumb for the father daughter dance…

My brother got married recently and a song came on that all the couples started dancing to. I had to practically emotionally blackmail my FH to get on the dancefloor with me (lol) … do the puppydog eyes and the lower lip drop, at any weddings you go to 😉

My husband hates dancing! I managed to get him dancing at a few weddings before ours by saying he needed to practice. Another technique that works is the semi-emotional blackmail (i.e. “Everyone else is dancing. Come on, don’t you want to be seen dancing with me?”). Also, my husband loves kids, so I’ll usually get a little boy or girl (girl works best) to ask him to dance – he can’t say no if my niece asks him to dance.

At our wedding, husband only wanted to do one or two dances, but his groomsmen dragged him up to the dance floor, then surrounded him and wouldn’t let him out for ages. So if you’re worried that he won’t dance at all, get his groomsmen on board and they might help you out. It was probably one of the highlights of the night, because they started making rules for him to get out (e.g. he had to do a breakdancing move, dirty dance one of his mates, slow dance with me, etc.).

My Fiance hates to dance too. My tactic is a little sneaky. We made a deal a few years ago that if the dj plays anything by Journey we would dance. Once he has loosened up a bit with a few drinks and makes a trip to the bathroom I sneak over to the dj and request a Journey song. When it comes on I just look at him and we get to dance for a few minutes. He may be on to me now but he hasn’t said anything.

I had to make a deal with my Fiance – “I won’t hassle you to dance at anyone else’s weddings as long as you dance at our own and don’t pull that face” (when he’s asked to dance he puts on this expression like he’s being asked to slaughter a puppy).

Why would you make the person you love do something they don’t want to or dislike?

@Liss13:  Sorry but I disagree no body needs a first dance. You need air, food water but dancing you want. We didn’t have a first dance because my H doesn’t like to dance and I would never ever make him do something at his own wedding that he wasn’t comfortable with. Are you saying my wedding and others who didn’t have a first dance are some how invalid?

Fh doesn’t really dance unless he’s drunk which these days he barely drinks…we went to my friends wedding and I danced the entire night while he sat there I wasn’t upset but he could tell that I was a little disappointed because I love to dance. When we went to my cousins wedding last month he actually danced and was a little embarrassed because he really can’t dance but he hung in there for me. I helped him out =) now we are taking dance lessons his idea =)
