The Wedding Anniversary Dance Explained

What You Need to Know About Anniversary Dance


A Great Dance for Your Married Guests

The Wedding Anniversary Dance Explained

Wedding Reception traditions are beginning to get a bit dated. How many of your girlfriend’s are fighting to win the bouquet toss or men scrambling for the garter? But there is one traditional reception activity that I am quite partial to: The Anniversary Dance. This is a great way for your wedding DJ to get people on the dance floor as well as celebrate longevity in marriage with usually slow wedding music.

The Anniversary Dance works best if you have a lot of guests who have been married for a long time.

HOW IT WORKS

Your DJ will invite all married couples to the dance floor to share a dance with the newlyweds, usually with slow wedding music. Once the dance floor is full, your DJ will then politely ask couples (with the exception of the bride & groom) who’ve been married less than 1 year, then 5 years, then 10 years, etc. to please leave the dance floor.

You could use any wedding music or songs you might want, but it’s best with a slow song that is enjoyed by all ages of married couples.

The Bride & Groom will be left dancing with the couple that has been married the longest (usually grandparents). Your DJ will get a round of applause for them and then ask them if they have any advice for you (since they’ve got more experience than anyone else in the room).

One of our recently married couples, Bridget and Michael, opted to have an Anniversary Dance. The DJ called all married couples to the dance floor. Suddenly Bridget and Michael were surrounded by couples of all ages. Slowly, the crowd of dancers began to dwindle away, and the newlyweds were left with just one couple who had been married 65 YEARS!! Talk about something to aspire to.

When asked for advice to share with Bridget and Michael, the couple said simply: “Take care of each other and serve one another,” very simple, yet profound and wise.
