I have no help for you on the complications of dancing with two dresses, probably because I’m the world’s biggest klutz and can barely comprehend not tripping over my own feet in heels.

On the ‘awkwardness’ though.  I think you may be over thinking it just a tad.  Your guests know the deal, they just witnessed your marriage and kiss, everything else should just be natural and expected.  They are there because they support and approve of your marriage!

If you don’t want to be in the spotlight for the whole dance maybe have the band invite the crowd to join in after about a minute or so.

And, to be honest, in the end you are married to the love of your life.  It’s all about YOU and HER, who gives a damn about anything else ๐Ÿ™‚

Why awkward for the guests? Because of moving around in bulky dresses? I think it would be great, just like any other first dance  . . .  ๐Ÿ™‚

@eagle:  Oh I see. I honestly think it would be beautiful! Have you looked at some videos online maybe? To get used to the idea?

Buy a couple of cheap super fluffy prom or bridesmaids dresses and practice in them. Buy the least expensive most outlandish ones you can find from a thrift store. Then later put some tiny element into a gift project that will always evoke the memories of practicing and all the laughs you’ll have together ๐Ÿ™‚

We had a two-bride first dance, and it worked fine!  If you’re doing a stand and sway kind of thing, it’s not an issue at all.  If you want something more complicated, the one issue will be that a lot of dances are structured with moves designed to show of the woman’s dress.  However, any dance instructor should be able to help you restructure them so as to show off both women’s dresses.

Oh, and if you are klutzes like us, two long dresses can cover up an amazing amount of bed footwork!  LOL

My friends had a two-dress first dance, and it was beautiful!  I just looked at the pics on FB again to be sure!  I don’t want to post pics without their permission, but trust me, it will look great.

Two of my good friends had a two dress first dance and both dresses had a lot of material to them. It wasn’t even a little awkward for me as a guest because they were both so clearly in love and happy…I’ve seen more typical first dances (groom in tux,  bride in dress) that were nowhere near as beautiful as that one!
