- Wedding: September 2015
Coming from a big, Mexican family, a wedding isn’t a wedding without a dance. So, I’ve always known that we would have one as well. And every wedding, quinceñera, graduation, anniversary party with a DJ that I’ve ever been to has had a mix of tejano, country, and pop/disco/line dances, etc. And it works. Everyone has fun, the floor is always packed, it’s a good time.
Problem: Fiance is white with no rhythm, as is his family and most of our friends. He doesn’t like the idea of catering the music towards my family (the tejano), nor does he like the other genres of music. They are much more classic rock and he’s into techno. My thing is, you can’t dance to either of those very well. It’s a lot of awkward jumping around.
He doesn’t have a solution for the music, he just wants his side taken care of. From my experience, it didn’t matter if you know how to dance it, people just go out and get down, especially if the floor is full of people already.
So, what kind of music are you having? If you already got married, what was played and how did it go over? Were people dancing or did they leave/sit around? I feel like what we usually have is a good mix for everyone, but he thinks his family will be uncomfortable.
