Keep Your Wedding Guests Dancing All Night Long
Once the wedding ceremony is over, the party begins! But, how do you get your guests up on the dance floor? To get the room jumping, follow these tips.
Start the night off right
Get everyone up and moving right away by postponing your first dance a bit. Call everyone to the dance floor for a big group dance, right after you and your bridal party are introduced. There are plenty of different ways you can do this, including having you and your spouse do a choreographed jive or swing while everyone from the bridal party pulls people to the floor. Or, start a line dance or a conga line.
Trust in your DJ
It can be tempting to give your DJ a list of every song you want to be played during the reception, but that can lead to awkward gaps when the music is playing. Instead, give the DJ the type of music you like and let he or she read the crowd in the moment.
Bring in a dance instructor to teach the group!
You and your guests can learn to dance at your reception by asking a dance instructor to come for a bit and teach a dance class! Contact Arthur Murray for more information about this great idea! Dancing lessons have grown in popularity lately; in fact, USA Dance Inc. reports a 35% increase in people who are interested in the world of ballroom dancing. Your instructor will be able to teach the entire reception all types of dances -- jive, rumba, samba, cha cha, anything you want!
Hands down, dancing is the best way for both you and your spouse, along with your guests, to have a memorable time at your wedding reception!
