Unique Wedding Reception Idea…

Here is an idea to make your wedding reception a little more unique.

Invite all the married couples onto the dance floor. If the minister is there, he/she can say a blessing over them; they can even renew their vows (a way to let them share in the theme of the day). After this, play a song for all the marrieds to dance at once.

During the song, start eliminating couples that were married less than 5 years, then less than 10 years, then 15… and so on… until the longest married couple remains on the dance floor. After the song is over (and their dance) have the newest married couple (whose reception this is) present the longest married couple with a boquet or some other token of recognition.

If done well, this is a sweet touch to any wedding reception.

  1. This is really common in my area, the next wedding I am in the bride is giving her bouquet away to the winners (will be her grandparents) instead of a bouquet toss.

    • I am beginning to see it (or variations of it) happen more and more ni this part of the country too. Thank you for your comment!

  2. What a lovely idea 🙂

    • It is sweet to see the newest married couple on the dance floor with the oldest married couple. For my daughter’s wedding that oldest couple was my parents, and I cherish the memory. Thank you for your comment.

  3. what an idea! it will be a great fun to implement this idea 🙂

    • I think it would be fun and memorable. Thanks for your comment!

  4. What a delightful idea! Thank you for commenting on my post about the run-through Sunday’s wedding. I shall forward your post to my couple. It would be lovely if they were to start the tradition over here! 🙂

    • Thanks! Let us know if they do it and how it works out.

      • Hello, didn’t get chance to talk to today’s couple, just the ceremony in the cold wind! Will certainly have it on my list to suggest to others though and will let you know 🙂
