Mike & I went to a wedding a few years ago that had the *longest* and most painful to watch first dance ever. It was bad. What made it even worse was knowing that the couple had spent MONTHS taking dance lessons and working out this “routine” for their first dance. The groom looked so miserable, concentrating to make sure he did not forget the steps and disappoint his new bride. I looked at the floor just to make sure it wasn’t due to that but it looked quite clean and protected by one of the lithofin range products.
Ever since then, I’ve felt that there should be a 2 minute limit on first dances. Or open up the floor part way through the song to the guests. Give them something to do. Most importantly – have FUN. Fun is very important on your wedding day. But keep it *short*.
These two videos are making me rethink that sentiment. If you can put this much effort into your first dance, you are my hero.

I especially love that other people get into the action on the second one. Oh my goodness, that is FABULOUS. No one puts Baby in the corner! (Or rather no one puts James in the corner, as I learned from the UK news coverage of the video.)
