Rock The Reception

I am sure that everyone has seen a You Tube clip of a bride and groom surprising their wedding guests with a choreographed first dance. The routines range from cute to hilarious. But the reception guests are always shocked. Many of them have to pick up their dropped jaw from the floor. While other jump up from their seats to get a better look at the musical production.
With the popularity of this wedding trend over the last two years, TLC created the show Rock The Reception. Tabitha and Napolean D'umo best known for So You Think You Can Dance are the stars of the show. The two well known choreographers and dance instructors have been married to each other for ten years and work well together. On the show, the couple team up to teach the bride, groom and their wedding party a crash course dance routine that they must muster up the nerve to perform in front of their wedding guests.
A few months ago, I received an email asking if I had any couples interested in being on a TV show about entertaining first dances. I asked my most courageous bride if she had thought about doing a first dance that was a little different and she quickly shook her head no.
So what do you think? Do you think a couple's first dance as husband and wife should be a special moment spent gazing into each other's eyes? While today's newlyweds may not do the traditional waltz, they do spend time deciding what love song to do their dance to. Would you be brave enough to pick out a fast song and rock your reception?
