Tips for Keeping the Dance Floor Alive At Your Wedding
One of the greatest memories from your wedding will most likely be dancing the night away with all of your family and friends. A packed dance floor is also a sign of an amazing party that guests will remember and talk about for a long time. Here are our top tricks to keep the wedding dance floor packed at your reception!
Prior to the first song to open the dance floor, Take a group photo to jumpstart the party!
If you’re worried that your guests may need some encouragement to get on the dance floor, have your emcee ask everyone to take a group photo. After the photo, have your DJ play a song that will break the ice and get people dancing to kick off the celebration!
Be a Good Example
Newlyweds are the stars of the night and people pay attention to where they are and what they are doing. If you want people up and dancing, set a good example and get out on the dance floor. If you must step away for pictures, drinks, mingling, or personal time, enlist your bridal party or encourage your guests to keep the dance floor up and poppin’.
Slow songs are important, however, try to keep them to a Minimum
Slow songs are great during cocktail hour and dinner. It also encourages couples to come out during dancing, but keep them to a limit during dancing time. Faster, more upbeat songs are the best way to keep the high energy flowing throughout the evening.
Go With the Flow
Breaks in dancing can ruin the dancing momentum. Do your best to make sure all speeches and any other traditions like cake cutting are all finished before the dancing even begins. If you really want to get the dance floor going, be flexible and go with the flow, it’s YOUR DAY, take a shot at the bar with your significant other then go get in the center of the floor and be the star!!
