No, we’re not talking about father/daughter, mother/son, and wedding-party-conga-line. So if we aren’t talking traditional reception dances that follow the first one, where are we going with this? Well, where does your life go after your wedding? Onward – except now as a pair. So instead of seeing your moment in the ballroom spotlight as simply the first dance of the evening, see it for what it really is: the first dance of your married lives. And if there’s a first, that means there are supposed to be more. You can dance anywhere – and you should. Even the grocery store, should you happen to hear an elevator version of your wedding song. But any song will do. Just don’t save it for other weddings. Be that couple everybody yearns to be – the ones who create romance out of thin air. It doesn’t matter if no one else joins in, like they say – dance like nobody’s watching. Pretty much the polar opposite of that first time, but more romantic without Uncle Sheldon and his giant Nikon.
So stay connected by having a second dance. And a third. And definitely jump on the occasional conga line.
