Busy day for wedding things for us! Is anyone else doing dancing lessons/choreography for their first dance? It was a really fun thing to learn together tonight, and I can’t wait to “perfect” it before our wedding!
We are doing dance lessons! I love it. Have had 2 classes already. We went in thinking we wanted a slow waltz. I think we will be leaving with an upbeat song and something like salsa or the hustle. It's way more natural for us!
Fun! I’ve thought about doing this because I am a terrible dancer!
We have been taking lessons also. The dance lessons have been by far the most fun I have had. I have enjoyed other wedding things but these classes are my favorite. Even more than dress shopping, lol. We are doing a modified version from dirty dancing. Cliche but I'm so excited. Probably won't be doing the lift or a few other things but it should still be nice. My FH said the other day he would prefer to take 15 more lessons than do a registry.
Ideally want to but I don’t know if we want to spend the money for a 3-minute dance; we recently decided to put some of our wedding budget towards our honeymoon so we are trying not to add too many new expenses into the wedding
I got a groupon for two private lessons for very cheap and we had our first last night - it was really fun. Our song turns out to be a rumba and she taught us a basic box steps and a couple of other moves. I knew it was going to be a pitch for a bigger package, and was. It's going to be tough telling her before the second lesson that we aren't signing up for more, but we really need to apply that money elsewhere. We kept practicing when we got home last night and will continue to do so. No big routine, we just don't want to do the middle school sway.

Haha I’m glad I’m not the only one who refers to it as “the middle school sway!” We have been wanting to try ballroom dancing for fun anyway, so we’re doing around 8 lessons before the big day and will probably continue to do cheaper group lessons afterwards just for fun.
