First Dance: Natural or Choreographed

Mr. Newport and I are both horrible dancers. Mr. Newport doesn't like to dance, and even though I love to, I'm just no good. But we are really good swayers.

Awhile back we considered doing dance classes, and by we, I mean Sister Newport and I thought it would be fun to take dance lessons before her wedding last year with our grooms to be. Neither of the guys were crazy about the idea, but were more open to doing it if we all did it together. But, as always things got in the way and we never did schedule those classes.

A month before Sister Newport's wedding, we went to cousin Newport A's wedding. He and his wife did take dance lessons and it was the most adorable first dance I had ever seen. It really made me want to take lessons.

Mr. Newport was still hesitant. Although we both loved cousin Newport's dance, Mr. Newport doesn't like the idea of choreographing ours, he thinks it will be more fun to make it up as we go. He plans to do a few dips and spins, but doesn't want me to know when they are going to happen. He thinks I'll have more fun and let loose if we just let the dance unfold.

I don't like surprises, but I'm going to let our first dance be Mr. Newport's thing and let him take the lead. He's excited about this (or just really doesn't want to take lessons), so I'll have to trust him and have fun in the moment.

Will your first dance be choreographed or are you going to just see what happens on the dance floor?

That's great you're letting him take the lead on that and give him something to be involved in. I'm letting my fiance take the lead with planning our honeymoon! :)

I think it would be nice to get dance lessons.. we'll see what we can fit in the budget and have time for!

We did a choreographed first dance that we came up with ourselves, and it was SO much fun. We have great memories of practicing (and practicing, and practicing), and it was so exciting to actually "perform" it. It was a hit with our guests, and they still can't quit talking about it! Regardless, have fun with your first dance, whether its planned or impromptu!

we're going to take dance lessons- starting mid aug :-) Rob went to an all boys school when he was growing up and ball room dancing was part of their curriculum (and when they got to hang out with the girls from the other school) no needless to say, he is a *much* better dancer than me! I don't wanna sway and have no talent to just follow- we're looking forward to the memories on the dance floor and our living room
