how to get your wedding guests out on the dance floor!

Let’s face it, your guests are looking forward to dancing at your wedding reception.  Some bride and groom’s are NOT dancers, but they want to watch their guests have a good time.

Here’s the trick to encouraging your wedding guests to get their groove on. Actually get on the dance floor with them!

It’s not that complicated. Your guests will be where ever you are. So if you are sitting in the back, outside drinking or mingling in a different room; that is where they will gravitate. Don’t blame your band or DJ. And don’t act like you are going to be judged like on “Dancing with the Stars”.  Have fun….shake your booty and enjoy yourself. And so will your guests.

For some inspiration; check out our clients Tara Brown and Max Axler at their wedding…and notice where the guests are!

hot wedding trend alert: surprise first dances

It’s the hottest thing right now….a choreographed first dance (and if it is a surprise….all the better)! In fact, I recently have picked up new clients that are planning this for their wedding. I can’t say who they are; because then it wouldn’t be a surprise.

Just check out this adorable couple:

If you go this route, very cool…just leave plenty of time for practicing and of course, the choreography part. I’m up for teaching anyone (dance team/cheerleader all through high school and college)!

This couple wanted something different. A Miami feel in Evansville. So that’s what we did, transformed their entire reception into a hip, hop, crazy night club reception with red carpet and paparazzi!
