Private Last Dance

There are several songs the FI and consider "our song", so we had a very hard time deciding on one for our first dance. We decided we wanted to take dance lessons, so we wanted to choose a song early so we have time to take lessons and get plenty of practice. So while browsing the internet I came across a few lovely shots like the one above, that caught my eye.

What happens is, when all of the guests leave to get ready for your grand exit (or when they all leave if you are not doing one), you and your new husband dance together alone. Its just the two of you, the DJ and the photorapher. Or you could even have the DJ start the song and then step out. So not only do you get another intimate moment with your new husband, but you can also get some great photos!

This seems like a great solution to our first dance song problem since we can pick two songs to dance to. Plus we dont have to eliminate any songs that are difficult to dance to since for the private last dance we can just sway if we want. We plan on limiting it to about 3 minutes, which will give the guests enough time to prepare for our grand exit. Plus I love the idea of having a few moments to basks in the last few minutes of our wedding together.

Did you do this at you wedding or have you ever heard of it?


  1. I haven't heard of this before. It's so sweet!

  2. I love this idea! What a great way to end the night!
    I wanted to stop over and let you know about a giveaway I'm having! Check it out!

  3. that's a great idea! We didn't have a private dance at the end..but near the end of the night, I had them play another song we loved and they made sure to bring us to the center of the dance floor and then eventually other couples joined in with us..it was a nice moment too. I love this picture..I think you'll get some great shots of you dancing in your space just the two of you, can't wait to see how it turns out!
