A lot of American wedding receptions follow this formula: a grand entrance followed by a meal, speeches, and finally dancing. But in what's been dubbed an “East Coast Style” reception, dancing happens right away with intermittent boogie-ing down between meal courses, too! It sounds pretty rad to me and gets everyone out of their seats and into mingle and mix mode right away.
An “East Coast Style” reception is our favorite! East Coast receptions (AKA, New York Style) put your formal dances before dinner. You’ll start dancing immediately after your grand entrance. Your guests will also dance between courses, which is typically more fun than staring at a dirty plate annnnd will create the illusion of non-stop dancing (and fun) from beginning to end. Jusssst something to consider when planning your wedding.
SO FUN. We've featured a few more ways to shake up dancing…
