Customs and Traditions
Anyone else not doing a traditional "first dance?"
I can't think of anything worse (for me) than having a room full of people watching me awkwardly dance, so we have decided not to do a traditional first dance. We will have some slow dances at our wedding, but they will be open to everyone. At first, I thought no one would really notice if we did it this way, but recently my mom asked me if we were doing a routine for our first dance (ugh, no), so now I am beginning to worry. My DJ suggested doing an anniversary dance where we start the dancing and then it is opened up to other couples. Obviously, this does not solve the problem. Everyone will still be watching me awkwardly dance with my husband, and there is a lot of divorce/recent breakups in my social circle and I would rather not bring attention to that. Did anyone scrap the first dance, and if so, did you replace it with something else? If so, how did it go?
