(Closed) No dancing at a wedding?

    You need to have a dance floor and DJ for guests.

    It won't be too boring without the dancing.

    I just went to a wedding where there was no dancing. It was dreadful. I think my Fiance and I left an hour or so into the reception–AND I WAS A BRIDESMAID. The whole reception was very awkward, especially because once dinner was over, everyone just kind of sat around. Sure, soft music was playing in the background, but everyone just kind of awkwardly hovered for another hour before I left. It wasn’t fun. I don’t really drink, so for me, it would just be sitting at a table all night waiting for the reception to be over.

    Also, this is just my “two cents” but just becuase you and your Fiance aren’t into music and dancing, why does that mean that everyone and your wedding must suffer because of it? You’re hosting a party, essentially, for your family and friends, so why would you eliminate something that is the most fun? I would be incredibly bummed and annoyed if I got to your reception and there was no dancing, but not my wedding.

    As someone who loves to dance, I would love it if there was dancing, but I wouldn’t care if the reception was shorter and fun without dancing. DH and I went to a wedding just before ours that had no dancing or music at all and the reception was FIVE HOURS LONG. The speeches were at least half an hour each, with both the bast man’s and father of the bride’s speeches being even longer. It was torture.

    what is a ‘dollar dance’?

    I also think that the guests should have the option to decide whether or not they want to dance
