What's your stance on slow dances at your wedding reception? Do you have a few slow jams planed to get some extra romantic moments dancing with your new spouse? Or are you skipping the slow songs and diving into the party?

Are you down for some slow songs at your reception? Yea or nay?

    Yes, we will be having some slow songs at the reception. But a good mix of non slow songs as well.

    Probably Yea. We aren't doing a slow song for our first dance (not because we dislike slow dances or anything we just had a perfect "our song" that happened to be a fast song) but there's several love songs we like a lot that we will probably request get thrown in during the reception

    We had at least one slow song per dance set because whenever we're at weddings we're disappointed when there aren't many couple dance-y songs. I feel like it's a good way to get people out on the dance floor because one part of the couple usually goads the other who may not like to dance to dance to the slow song. haha.

    We had a few mixed in but mainly dance music. Most people took the slow song as an opportunity to rest and grab a drink.

    One song for us together to dance too, one for my kids and us to dance too, and he wants a song for his mom. Everything else will be left up to the DJ

    Yea. There will be a few. Not that many though, since we're there to rock!!

    Nay! I hate slow dancing. If I did my wedding 100% my way, it would be like a club. Slow dances kill my vibe.

    Definitely having slow dance songs. The whole point of the day is to feel the romantic vibes so I want to ensure people are feeling that. But we definitely have more party songs than slow songs.

    Well it looks like I’m the odd man out here lol. My theme is basically a Romantic Night of Jazz so no Cupid shuffle and other party songs for me. I prefer the closeness of slow songs and I think it fits the setting better.

    We plan on having mostly upbeat songs with a few slow ones sprinkled in.

    We'll definitely have a few mixed in. There's a select few guys in our group that will only get on the dance floor with their wives if it's a slow song, so I have to make sure they get out there at least once during the night!

    Most likely. We want people to take a break and breathe a little bit. It won't be a lot though lol

    I haven’t really thought of it but maybe a small handful like 3 or so then have fun dancing music. Music is the least of my interest since I’m not much of a dancer or fan of popular music so I’m going to hand the reigns over to my dj and let him make most of the decisions for what is playing during the dancing portion.
