We decided not to have dancing at our wedding because it just really wasn’t important to us. We’re having an outdoor wedding (with cover) and space was also a consideration…but bottom line dancing just didn’t fit with our vision.

We’re lucky enough to have a venue that offers swings, volleyball, and horseshoes…so there’s lots to do. Plus FOOD…there will be food which is going to eat up a good chunk of time.

Personally, I think it sounds like you’ll be alright, but what are people going to do during the live music from 8:30-10:30? I would think they will expect to dance and music is being provided. You could have slow dancing only for those who feel like?

and just an FYI…you’ll get asked about 110 times a day by the same 7 people what your first dance song will be. …and you’ll get the “look” (you’ll know it when you see it) when you tell people you’re not having dancing at your wedding, and no its not for religious reasons. Sigh

@franica07:I’ll be there!

I was going to suggest poker or some other kind of gambling related game. I’ve seen it at one other wedding and it was a HUGE attraction (there wasn’t even cash involved)! Obviously not for everyone, but a cool entertaining idea.

We’re having a short reception (4 hours), so we’re not having a specific dance floor. We’ll do the traditional special dances, ’cause those are important to us (first dance, father/daughter, mother/son), and the music will be on all the way through, but we’re having a mingling-style reception, too. : )
