Many people are familiar with the anniversary dance - it is a great activity! We sometimes do the anniversary dance....opposite! Here is how it works:
First, we start a song and invite the bride and groom out onto the dance floor and recognize them as the couple that has been married the least amount of time. From there we slowly invite couples out onto the dance floor as they have been married 1 year or less, 5 years or less, 10, 25, 30, etc. until we have all of the married couples out on the dance floor. When the song is over, we will sometimes recognize the couple who has been married the longest and ask them for a piece of advice for you - the couple (you) who was married today. From there we will play a fun and upbeat song that everyone across the generations will enjoy - and keep them dancing!
So why do we do this in reverse of the traditional anniversary dance? First, we want to get folks onto the dance floor - not take them off! And sometimes, those couples that have been married the longest may not be able to dance for a full 4 minutes because of age, health, etc.
We hope these ideas are helpful for you as you are envisioning your perfect day! Give us a call if you want to brainstorm more ideas - we are here to help :)
Heard of this ever popular activity? It can be a lot of fun! Here is how it works..... The bride and groom sit back to back in chairs and both exchange one shoe with each other - so both have one of their own shoes and one of each others. From there, the DJ asks a series of fun/funny questions like "who is messier?" "who said I love you first?" "who is most likely to get lost?" etc. The bride and groom answer the questions by holding up one of the shoes. The best part - the bride and groom can't see each other and how they are answering and the guests think it is hilarious! We love this because it is likely the only time at your wedding that all of your guests will be laughing together - makes a great memory for everyone!
