Recently on the radio, we were discussing the special dances, and Alisa called in with this insight:
A lot of the enjoyment of a wedding has to do with the excitement. And when you make people sit down like it's a presentation, they lose interest.
Because it's true: There's a lot of sitting around watching during the dances. And that's not very exciting.
Perhaps the best way to make it interesting is to invite your guests to join in on the dance floor after a little while -- which is actually what all the etiquette books suggest.
What do you think? How will you fight off the "presentation" problem?
