    I meant to ask this question in my last thread but it came out wrong. I don't want to do a "traditional" corny first dance. I'd like to do something fun that shows our personalities. I am stumped on ideas though....

    Hoping your guys can share your ideas to help me with mine!

    Thanks

      Go to youtube and search for "Rock the Reception". It will give you some ideas!!

        FI and are planning a dramatic Argentine Tango...the dance of passion... think Antonio Banderas with that girl in the black dress in that movie...oh, what's it called? The one where he teaches street kids to dance?

        We want to make it intense and theatrical. We are going to wear white masks and I am changing into a short, slant cut white dress. We have chosen an R&B song to dance to...let's hope it all goes well!

        Perhaps you should consider dance lessons? Depending on when your wedding is, you can begin soon and learn a few social ball room dances...cha-cha or swing...just the basic steps can help you choreograph something fabulous...

          We are going to be doing the tango dance from True Lies and then changing half way through to a salsa dance. It is going to be so much fun.

          My questions to you is, when you change out of your wedding dress into a smaller dress are you going to put your wedding dress back on after the dance or are you just going to finish the night out with the short fun dress? I am debating this because I feel like I should get my money out of my wedding dress, but at the same time our dance would look so much better with a short sexy number on.

            We are thinking about doing the dirty dancing "I've had the time of my life" dance right up until the lift and then switch it to a funky remix of early 90's dance moves...the hammer, kid-n-play, cabbage patch, running man, etc. I haven't exactly learned the dirty dancing dance yet but i've got the movie and hopefully we can learn enough from that to swing it. I did buy the dirty dancing work out dvd thinking that would be on there but it's not - however, it is a lot fun and if you are a decent dancer try johnny's mambo - it was hard for me but with practice I think I'll get it. good luck!

              I agree...because the Argentine tango has a lot of foot work, it will be lost under my wedding gown...not to mention make me trip! And to dance all night in my wedding gown may take work...the train is chapel length. So...(and I am thinking this through as I write) it makes sense to leave our first dance until later in the night...perhaps one hour before the end of the reception or the very last thing we do before leaving the reception. I can slip out (brides need to go to the bathroom :) change and then do the dance, finishing the last hour of the reception in a shorter dress that is less constricting for me or leaving in the shorter dress right away. That way I get mileage out my wedding gown...and tango in something more comfortable and realistic.

              Our wedding is on the final night of our trip...the grand finale! So to end our wedding week with our first dance as husband and wife would be very symbolic...and cool!

                I'm taking salsa lessons (just for fun) and was thinking of making my fiance take them too. It's not the traditional slow dance but I thought it could be fun and sexy and hopefully get the party started.

                  We are going to do the Viennesse Waltz nonthing too exciting but I think it looks like such a beautiful dance like your floating across the floor and not too hard in a long dress.

                      I too am thinking of doing something unique and funky, but have yet to come up with ideas that fit "us". I thought of the Dirty Dancing dance as well...I love the movie and the song would be great to start off the night! I also thought if I get organized in time we could do something where my FI and I lead it off, then have the wedding party jump in and join us for an ensemble dance, like the one we've all seen on Youtube of the inmates in the jail dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller...how hilarious would that be?!?
