Hi Johanna!  Welcome!

I think your idea sounds awesome!  In fact, we’re thinking of doing something very similar, just at our welcome party / rehearsal dinner party thing the night before our wedding.  Our welcome party will be loosely country western themed, with a country-type band and stuff.  We want people to learn to line dance on the night of the welcome party, just for fun, and I think it would be cool if we played a line dance song the next night at the wedding and got a bunch of people to do the dance.  I think stuff like that just adds to the merriment of weddings… I say you go for it!

p.s. I forgot to mention that our wedding is in Billings, Montana.  If you find an awesome line dance instructor, please let me know!

I think it sounds like a wonderful idea! Way to be a great future wife by putting others before yourself on your big day! I think having a dance instructor come in would be a great way to get others to interact. Not only does it bring the guest together at the reception but it brings more fun to the table. Some people may be shy and keep to themselves. Not at your wedding reception, you can bring out the fun in everyone! I think the turnout will be pleasing.. Good Luck! =)

that is a GREAT idea.  i had toyed with having a salsa or swing instructor come in for 30 min to give easy beginner instructions, but our wedding was too large.

Uh, I’m pretty late on this, but that is a really fun way to get guests to interact! Uh, just make sure the libations are plentiful. Most Montanan’s won’t dance without some liquid courage!

I think this sounds SO fun!

If your Fiance is a little weary, maybe you could have a dance instructor come *before* the ceremony, if you could get word out/have a location that would work for this. Then you could get word out that lessons would be offered and people could choose whether or not to come a bit early and learn.
