Wenning Entertainment has been in the wedding industry for nearly 30 years now. Because of this experience, we know when something is a fun trend to include in your wedding, or if it will do more harm than good. The latest fad of having a private final dance falls into the latter category.
A Private Final Dance
This year, couples all over the internet have decided they will close the night of their wedding with a final private dance. This follows the growing trend of incorporating more small, intimate moments with your new spouse throughout the event. In this vein, we have also seen the first look, private first dances, and couples scheduling time between the ceremony and reception to have a quiet moment alone.
Those are all sweet additions to your big day if you want a moment’s piece with your new spouse on that busy, hectic day. However, a final private dance is not the way to do that successfully.
Don’t Hold People Hostage
Question for those considering having a private final dance: have you ever stayed until the end of a wedding?
Most venues have a time limit for how late you can stay. Wrangling and ushering everyone out of the venue in the first place is a challenge. Also, your servers and bussers need to start clean-up right after everyone leaves. Then, whatever entertainment you have will need to teardown and pack up their equipment.
In addition to all of that, you may want to keep the party going at an after-party with your guests that have stayed. Have your intimate private moment earlier in the night so that you don’t kill the vibe at the end and hold up your vendors from doing their jobs.
