First dance when i hate being the center of attention
Gen in Wedding Reception, on July 12, 2018 at 4:15 PM

I really love the idea of the first dance in theory, and my FH is VERY excited about it, so it’s definitely not something we can just cut out. The only issue is I honestly get so anxious and awkward...
