We did! We had 5 hour-long lessons in total, and they helped a lot. That being said, we only did them because my MIL gifted them to us (they were not cheap and we wouldn’t have felt it was worth it if we paid ourselves).
We did! It was a total of about 8 hours. I wanted to do a choreographed dance (we did a waltz that transitioned to a faster tempo freestyle dance) which is the only reason we took them. If you’re just planning on doing a basic waltz with a few spins thrown in there, I don’t think it’s necessary.
But if you’re nervous about dancing in front of people, I highly suggest taking lessons!
My fiance and I took dancing lessons because I'm not a good dancer lol. He was hesitant to do the lessons (he loves dancing and didn't think we needed lessons), but we ended up loving them! It was a date night out for us, and I got to feel more confident on the dance floor.
We decided to do dance lessons. My husband is a good dancer. I’m not as good a dancer as him but I know how to dance. I wanted something that would look better than slow dancing at prom. So our choreographer came up with a dance that’s similar to ballroom dancing. My family from Detroit really enjoyed it cuz ballrooming is popular there. I think everyone else just assumed we came up with the dance on our own. Lol but it was nice because we had fog and our wedding video and photos looked like we were dancing on clouds. I think adding fog is a great idea if you’re not sure about hiring a choreographer. Cuz everyone gets so enamored with the fog that they don’t pay as much attention to the steps you’re doing.
We didn’t, but I was a dancer from 3yo-19yo. Although it’s been about 8 years since I’ve danced I can pick up moves pretty well. So I taught my now hubby to dance (which was not easy... he was pretty bad) and then we just practiced a lot. We didn’t want anything choreographed because we wanted it to be more natural and to just enjoy the moment. However- we did some really cool moves during the dance lol.
We did not! We just swayed and had a nice relaxed moment to ourselves. I am so glad we didn't try to do a stressful choreographed dance.
