I don’t really like that idea. I feel like people might just leave at that point and not wait for the official last dance. We had a lot of people exit at the last dance anyway so I feel like after the whole day of festivities people wouldn’t want to stick around for that. I’d be interested to hear how it went for anyone that did it though because obviously I could be wrong.

No.  I’m not big on having a lot of dances that exclude the guests.   We are just doing a shortened first dance and a shortened bride/brother  groom/mother dance

our last dance was “forever” by the dropkick murphys. our whole family circled around us and it was just the perfect end to a perfect day.

I hate when there is a slow last dance at weddings, especially if it is just for the bride and groom.  Usually at that point in the night, I want to keep dancing! And I probably would just leave after the slow song thinking it was the last.

We picked a last dance song and made sure we were both on the dance floor (Tony Bennett – The Best is Yet to Come) but that was about it.

I’ll be sure to be out dancing with my husband for the last dance, but I won’t kick guests off the floor.

@hecallsmelove:  I don’t want to hurt your feelings or sound rude, but I think the first dance is sweet, but don’t see any real reason for your last dance. Plus it might get a bit boring for your guests having 2.

I think I am confused, because I was thinking of the same type of thing.  Have a designated last dance (just between us and the DJ) before we take off, but I don’t know that kicking the guests off the dance floor was what I was envisioning.  I probably would like to have the DJ keep playing music after that song and our departure.  We have a time limit at our venue, and we weren’t planning on even staying that whole time.  We don’t expect many of our guests to stay more than a couple hours (that’s just how our families are).  

For both  @hecallsmelove:  and myself, Does it ring the same rude way if there is no announcing that it is the last song?  Couldn’t that just be a private thing that we picked out ahead of time to get close one last time and savor the moment?

We are doing a last dance but it will be in private while our guests are moved downstairs for our exit. We will have the photographers and dj in the room but thats it.

@hecallsmelove:  Well we decided to do it becuase we will have some time while everyone is leaving the reception. It will also be a great moment to reflect on the events of the day. I hear that there is so much going on that its difficult to really process what just happened!

@hecallsmelove:  Also, I wouldnt say this is “rude”. It is your wedding and you can have as many dances as you would like! If anyone is upset by it then maybe they shouldnt have been invited 🙂
