One of the biggest days of my life so far, my wedding day, has come and gone! My hubby and I were dating over three years when he had proposed to me on our trip to Disney World in 2011. It was a surprise (because I had snooped through his suitcase before we left and I didn’t see a ring!) and not a surprise at the same time since we talked about marriage from very early on in our relationship. When you are an unemployed graduate school graduate living at home with your parents, money is extremely tight, but after the death of my grandfather I desperately needed something to take my mind from my woes and the wedding planning ensued!
One thing I knew I wanted for our wedding was a surprise wedding dance. I have been dancing my whole life from toddlerville through college (the most recent venture was dragging my unfortunate husband and friends to ballroom classes). I also come from an EXTREMELY musical family and I’m a choir kid as well.
So, really, the dance was just in the cards.
Through my research of what others had done for their surprise wedding dances, I found some gems! These truly make my soul happy! Here are a few of my favorites because of their song choice, their uniqueness, and their ENERGY. And for those of you who want to see the finished product, here is my bridal party’s (I’m a proud momma!)
I was passionate about kick-starting our life together with a zestful, uninhabited show of joy and our dance definitely did that!
Now, on to the Adina and Gem surprise dance gems!
I love me some Bieber!
Like I said, I am a choir dork, having been in many choirs and the opera company in college. So, while this isn’t a surprise DANCE, it was definitely a surprise…
Just gets better and better!
And last, but not least, a father daughter surprise dance
