The day is finally here. The day you have been dreaming of since your were little. The day you have planned for the past 12 months. With all stress, with all the pains, the day is finally here. Your WEDDING DAY. First thing you should do is relax and enjoy the day.
The wedding ceremony is beautiful and very heartfelt. It transpires without any hitches. The bridal couple enters the reception hall to a standing ovation. Then, everyone eats and the formal dances are complete. FINALLY, the part-e begins. Thirty minutes transpire and no one is dancing. This is not the reception party that you had envisioned. You pictured everyone dancing the night away. However, no one is dancing. What can you do to get people on the dance floor to get the party started? We offer the following recommendations to get the party started.
No One Is Dancing At Your Wedding
What guests are the most likely to dance? Yes, it’s the young adults. Therefore, play current music hits that are to on the charts now including Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna, etc. The younger crowd could get the party started.
Men typically will not get up to the dance floor to many high tempo songs. Think about playing a couple slow songs consecutively to get couples to the dance floor. Play well known songs by every age group such as Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers and What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong.
Play an anthem song that everyone knows that they can sing along to. Rock – Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey, R&B – Shout! by the Isley Brothers, Country – Friends In Low Places by Garth Brooks, Classic Rock – We are the Champions by Queen and much more. Know your crowd and the type of music that get’s them excited.
Talk to the bride and groom beforehand and get an idea of their favorite music style. Find out if they like group dances and which ones suit their fancy. You can play a group dance but it must be headlines by the bride and groom leading the way. Such dances include he conga, the train, the electric slide, the macarena and so on. Reminder – keep the bride and groom in the forefront so that everyone joins in.
Finally, plan a group dance to get everyone on the dance floor. This way it will be hard for them to leave! One such planned dance is to invite all married couples to the dance floor. Then, start removing married couples from newest to oldest until the longest married couple is remaining. The, give a bride’s bouquet to them as a gift from the bride and groom.
Do you have any further suggestions to fill the dance floor when empty? Please comment in! Lastly, stay away from our list of songs not to play at weddings.
