We're planning our wedding, and one of the things we really liked the idea of, was being able to dance at our wedding. Nothing like "dancing with the stars" but we want to look like we know what we are doing.
We searched the Knot Blogs for two things: 1) Dance instructor recommendations, and 2) Wedding couples in the Baltimore area, who are taking dance lessons, who might like to get together for "dance dates" to practice. We came up totally empty on both.
Now, fortunately, several of our married friends all used the same company so we figured out where to go. And let me tell you, we absolutely love it and we can't say enough good things about the instructors. They are really affordable, and they work with our crazy schedule, even when we need really odd hours.
We like dancing for several reasons: We want to look good and feel confident at our wedding, we like spending time just with each other, getting away from work AND wedding planning.
But this has really gotten us thinking... What happened to the "standard" idea of taking dance lessons for your wedding? Enough of our friends did it for their weddings, that we had to schedule our time with them around their lessons. And, you really could tell the difference between them and the ones who didn't take them. But, now, just a couple years since we attended our last friend's wedding, no one seems to talk about it much.
