I opted out of dancing for my wedding reception, my husband has never been the type to dance or go to clubs. The only dancing I would not let go of was Father/Daughter and first dance as a newly wedded couple. Have you been asking yourself a similar question, “We aren’t going to have dancing. What should we substitute for that?” and “Will a wedding without dancing be fun?”
It depends on who is attending your wedding and your preference. My wedding was plenty fun for everyone, even without dancing.
As far as I’m concerned, the answer to the above question is you either have dancing, or you don’t. There is no substitute. Which is completely acceptable. Think about it. Most parties you attend probably don’t have dancing, and they’re a delight.
The truth is, if you don’t have dancing, chances are most folks won’t even miss it. If the vibe of your wedding is “elegant dinner party,” people will chat and eat and have a great non-dancing time. Or maybe your affair has a more relaxed, “picnic” vibe and you have a bounce house and a piñata and a cook out. The truth is, there are as many ways to entertain guests at a party.
Those of you who didn’t have dancing at your wedding what other activities did you plan for your wedding reception? Did you just eat and hang out? Do lawn games? Share your plans with others opting out of dancing!
