For those of you that may not know, or be familiar with it, an Anniversary Dance is a special dance at the reception that can be done following the first dance, father-daughter dance, and mother-son dance to encourage people to get out on the dance floor. We'll pick a slow, lovey-dovey song, and the DJ will encourage all couples to come out to the floor and dance with us. Then throughout the song, in intervals, he will ask anyone that has been married for less than ___ years to take a seat. You fill in the blanks, starting with one year, five years, ten years, and building your way up. The last couple on the dance floor at the end of the song will be married the longest.
I have no idea who this couple is, but I want to be that happy and in love when I get old and wrinkly.
I think it's a really great way to celebrate the marriages in our family. It will be fun to see who makes it the longest. I remember my grandparents celebrating their 50th anniversary when I was younger, not quite sure what they're up to now, and I'm sure Mr. T's grandparents have celebrated theirs as well. It will be one more reminder for us that love really does last, and not all marriages are doomed for divorce.
What are you doing to celebrate your loved ones on your wedding day?
