Throughout my relationship with my Fiance, he has continually tried to get me to go dancing with him, something I have slithered out of for quite some time, but I am thinking it won’t be so easy to get out of it at the wedding.
My real problem is a tend to lack that sense of rhythm that keeps you from causing other people bodily harm. Although I would be the first to admit that it is probably more about being self-concious than anything else.
Any suggestions for getting over this? I am looking into classes, but wondering if someone had some sort of mystical words of wisdom that would make me stop dreading this point in my wedding…

I’m going to sound like my mother (Dear Lord) but…practice. If you practice, you’ll be both more confident AND just better. Practice your first dance, the other dances you may have, any sort of choreographed dance (not sure what you are planning on having). That’s all I’ve got though, really. 🙂

I have NO rhythm. Seriously, I can’t even clap to our fight song. We meant to take lessons, but ran out of time. We just swayed, and while I may have looked silly, I was so busy laughing with my husband and enjoying the day that I didn’t even care or notice. By the end of the night, I was even doing the chicken dance (thank you, tequila).
Since you don’t love to dance, just keep it simple and take a couple of lessons. You’ll be wonderful.

6-7 years ago, FH had zero sense of rhythm. Years of dancing has made him into one of the best leads in the area. So like AmeliaBedelia said… practice, practice, practice.

And honestly have you been to a wedding, if you have a big dress NO one with even really be able to tell that you are moving. So relax have a drink or 2 and just dance around at home and by the time its your wedding you will be fine.

I have the same problem! I can dance at a nightclub…because it’s dark:) But in front of 150 people at my wedding is a bit scary. I wanted to skip it, but I feel like it is an important part of the night. I plan on taking lessons. If I can do it, so can you!
