Sometimes the dance floor is hopping, and sometimes… well, it's not. If you want to make sure the dance floor gets going, you can hire a dance instructor to teach everyone a simple dance. You may even know someone in your circle who would be up for the job. Everyone who wants to join in can learn a new dance and get people feeling comfortable busting a move. Plus, anyone who doesn't want to dance (or can't) gets a great show.

At Kristy and Kevin's wedding (above), they hired a dance instructor to show everyone a few moves. The consensus was that "everyone laughed a lot." Win.

Lara's mother is a belly dance teacher, so they did a Bollywood dance in place of a "couples dance" to get the dance floor going. See more from Lara and Matt's musical forest wedding.
