Bridal Party Dance ?

Our wedding is quite small, only about 55 guests.  We aren't really the rowdy type.  I'm wondering if you all have any thoughts on scrapping the bridal party dance.  We will do a newlywed dance, father/daugher dance and mother/son dance.  I think a lot of the slow songs are quite cheesy and I can't see our group really getting into the fast songs to dance (the best man is almost 50 and not too much fun...FBIL). 

Any insight?

    We're not doing a bridal party dance either.  I think it's perfectly fine to skip it.

    we aren't doing it.  my girls don't know the GM.  it would be awkward.  I'm not going to make them slow dance with people they just met the night before

    we have uneven sides too - but we didn't when we decided to nix it.

    We are, but we're kinda being silly about it.  None of the WP knows what the song is.  We're going to let them get up & couple up like they're going to slow dance.  And then Walk it Out will come on :-)  Yeah some people might not like it but its fun & its us.

    I've only been to probably 1 wedding with a bridal party dance.  Spare your WP.

    We'd talked about having our bridal party jump in and dance together for the last thirty seconds or so of our first dance together, but that never panned out.

    Can totally be skipped!

    I say don't do it.  No offense to those that are, but I think it's silly and outdated to put your WP on display like that.

    If you want to have them join you for a dance, do so, but have them dance with the SOs.

    This!  I hated having to dance with someone when I am a BM... it's awkward even if you know the person...

    Totally!  I hated having to dance with a guy that I met the night before!  And it's even worse if both parties are attached and would much rather be dancing with their SO.  OP, if you do want to have a dance, maybe just let the WP bring their dates up to dance (assuming no one is stag and will be left out).

    We aren't doing one. Almost all of our WP is OOT anyway so we wouldn't be able to teach them even if we watned to.

    Thank you ladies, I feel much better now! We have such a mixed bag WP that it would have been strange! Every wedding I've been in (a LOT!) have made me dance with guys I don't know...ugh, awkward!

    I've only seen it done once, and I thought it was boring.  Having been in 3 weddings, I am very glad that I did not have to participate in one.

    The first dance, parent dances, etc. are sweet, but IMO a wedding party dance looks too much like a performance.
