We’re doing this…but we’re also doing the boquet toss.

We had an "anniversary dance" at our wedding and it was a lot of fun!  We gave the toss bouquet to the couple married the longest. Amazingly no one asked why we did have a bouquet toss!

We also had an anniversary dance & no bouquet toss. We ended up having the dance because our florist gave us a throw-away bouquet at no cost 🙂

I’ve heard this called the "Generations Dance." They did it at my friend’s wedding along with the bouquet toss. It’s a great way to celebrate new and old love 🙂

We actually thought this was a great idea – until we found out there were several anniversaries the same day as our wedding – and we decided to do something to specifically honor those couples.  What found out "their" songs, and had the band play them.  Unfortunately for the couple that had been married longest (56 years) she had recently had a knee replaced, and so they couldn’t dance.  So in that respect it’s actually not such a great way to celebrate your older guests, as the ones that have been married the longest may not be able to dance, and so may not be on the dance floor to be honored.  You might want to think about that – I actually didn’t, until confronted with my anniversary guests who very graciously thanked me for the song but declined to dance.
