- Wedding: October 2015
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.
