    I say skip the WP dance. It really isn't necessary and it makes many WP members uncomfortable. Your other two songs sound good to me :)

    I agree with pp, skip the WP dance.  Your other songs look great!

    I had never though about skipping the WP dance until reading posts saying it on another thread.  And now we have chosen to cut that dance out too.  And truthfully anyone in our WP who we've told has been thankful.  But if you are insistent on having one, I like the song i get by with a little help from my friends.  Not sure the exact title, but I danced to it in a WP before and it was a good choice.

    Thanks for the help, sure my WP wouldn't mind skipping the dance all together!  But still might consider it, have time, like the Beatles song idea wanted a friend type song.

    The WP dance is so unneccessary.  Unless you're having your WP dance with their own significant others, it's uncomfortable for them to have to dance with someone they don't know well.

    It's boring for guests to have to stand through yet another spotlight type dance.  There are already 3 dances where the guests are just standing around.  And honestly, as a guest, have you EVER cared to watch the bride's college roomie dance with the groom's frat brother?

    I honestly haven't seen a WP dance in well over a decade.  Just skip it.  Your WP and your guests will all thank you.
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146

    I'm skipping on the WP dance, simply for awkwardness reasons. I don't want to make anyone dance who doesn't feel comfortable, especially with a near stranger. However, because we are not having a Mother/Son dance or a Father/Daughter dance (both his mom and my dad are dead), I think I might have the DJ do something of a "couples dance" where he asks all the couples to come to the dance floor. But besides our first dance, this will probably be the only planned dance.

    <div>I love your choice! Harry Connick Jr's voice makes my heart melt. We are debating on a couple first dance songs right now, one of which is a HCJ song. "It Had to be You" is a fantastic song to dance to.</div>

    Yeah, I'm thinking of skipping this too. One of my bridesmaids will be 16 and my FI's younger brother is in his part of the wedding party and he's going to be 13. Plus, the other four people (mine and his wedding party) don't know each other at all and will probably never meet before the wedding do to distance and such. I thought about doing this but it just seems boring and lame.

    I'm also using the Adam Sandler song somewhere!
