When you are planning a budget wedding, one challenge is to find the best prices and prioritize your hopes and dreams without scrimping on creativity and individuality. If you can find a good deal on your reception music, one fun way to express yourselves as a couple is during the dancing. You have a groom. You have a date. You have a venue. You have an inexpensive wedding ring set. Now is the time to plan the dances! Here are a few creative ideas to get you started.
1. The Whole Wedding Party Dance
If you have a wedding party that is made up of good dancers, or at least people who would be willing to get out there and try, then you might want to recreate something like this couple, who started their first dance as a married couple to a sedate slow dance, but one minute in broke out into a snappy number from “Grease,” with the assistance of their entire wedding party. A dance like this could be choreographed with a live band or with a DJ, depending on your budget and music preferences.
2. Father - Daughter Dance
If some members of your wedding party have two left feet or a little bit of stage fright, how about Dad? Would he be excited about making some moves for a memorable father - daughter dance at your budget wedding reception? This dad has very smooth moves and appears to have a playful sense of humor as he dances his daughter into her new life. The father – daughter dance is a time when most of the attention is on the bride, her wedding gown, and her inexpensive wedding ring set. It is a great time to shine and express some originality.
3. Bride and Groom Dance
How well does the new bride and groom work together? This couple shows off their romantic side when they start dancing slowly to “Unchained Melody.” Then all of a sudden, the couple breaks into a marvelous rendition of “Baby Got Back,” with wild cheers from all of their guests.
