Take a class together! Pick a style that you like – swing, salsa, waltz and make it your date night every week.  We took a private class just us and the instructor – went to an all comers class once and it was a little odd because they make you switch partners, anyway we made an event out of six weeks of classes. We would go out to dinner at a really nice restaurant after. It was a great way to learn how to dance,explore the city and have some time together during the craziness of wedding planning! Have fun with it! I found out that I do not like being lead, that I insist on leading which is very telling of my personality and something we still joke about! At the wedding, I’m not so sure anyone could even tell that we took lessons, probably not, but we weren’t nervous for the first dance! Best of luck!

I know you said you don’t have enough money for a dance class, but all you need is 1 lesson with your first dance song and you’ll be good to go.  I also can’t dance to save my life and after 45min practicing our wedding song dance with an instructor, I can!  It was a ton of fun, we were grinning like idiots the entire time!  Seriously, just one lesson with your song and you’ll be fine.

I am in the same boat! In fact, we do not even have a song because I don’t know what type of music or what type of dancing will cover our inabilities the best. Disaster!

We literally took 2 classes at Arthur Murray the week before our wedding – I think they cost like $75 total and they were at like 8pm so I could go after work.  So worth it!!

Geez, I’m sorry. The no funding for dance classes didn’t register in my brain which has apparently exited for the weekend already.  Could you find a video of a simple first dance on You Tube as an example and do the best you can re-creating it? No matter what you decide to do, just relax and have fun! If your happy and having fun no one is going to judge you.  You will be surrounded by family and friends who want to celebrate this special moment with you, no one is going to be anything but supportive!

@ambereyez:  DH and I had an upbeat song and we did the middle school shuffle throughout the whole thing.  The thing is, we were so happy about being married that we laughed, kissed, and acted goofy through most of it.  He spun me around in ways that were anything but elegant.  He stepped on my dress and ripped out my bustle.  It was a disaster from a mechanical perspective.

Despite all that, everyone said how awesome it was because it was genuine and we looked so in love.  It made some awesome and some goofy photos, too.  I wouldn’t think too much into it!

We’re getting married in three weeks, we just started practising today. We’re both absolutely hopeless, but we watched a couple of quick videos on Youtube, and worked out one sequence which we are able to repeat with some twirls and giggles throughout. I’ve already lost half a toenail (eek, have open toe shoes) and kneed him in the groin on more than one  occasion… accidentally of course! But we had a great time all the same.  Won’t look particularly elegant, but I’m sure we’ll have a lot of fun. Thats what’s most important right??

As long as you are having fun darling, no one is going to care if you are two stepping to a waltz.
