    There wasn’t an option for  “have a first dance and have a dance area available to those that want to dance.”


    That would be my preference as I really enjoy dancing at weddings and I would miss seeing a loved one’s first dance.

    However, it is your special day so do whatever will truly make you & Fiance happy.

    I think the question should be, how important is dancing to you?

    Do you want to dance?  Does your FI?  Will your guests enjoy dancing?

    I kind of like the first dance and let people join in if they want.

    Well, if you want to provide this and keep your bluegrass band (which I love!), what about having dance songs on an ipod with a speakers?  This way when the band has set breaks, you can put on the iPod.

    I think people look forward to dancing, so I think that you should have it as an option. And I think maybe you might regret it if you don’t. It really is fun and I think the first dance is special too…but it’s up to you and what you want ๐Ÿ™‚

    It doesn’t hurt to have it available for anyone who wants to. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I went to a super casual outdoor wedding where they didn’t really do a first dance or anything, and it was just fine.  They had rented a small dance floor so some people got out there and the kids danced, but I never felt like anything was missing from the wedding because they didn’t make a big deal out of the first dance.  As long as there is a place that people can dance if you want to, then I say you do what you want and if you guys suddenly feel the need to get up and dance, then go for it!
