This past weekend we had the privilege of coordinating Carol & Cameron's wedding and was particularly touched by Carol's Uncle Joe, who we came to find out has been married to his wife for over 50 years. Carol & Cameron incorporated the anniversary wedding dance into their reception and I wanted to share how this dance works with our readers.
The anniversary dance begins with all married couples out on the dance floor...one by one couples are called off the dance floor based upon how long they've been married, starting with couples who have been married less than 1 day (aka the bride & groom). The MC continues calling out couples who have been married 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, 25 years, etc... until the couple that has been married the longest remains on the dance floor. The couples danced to "At Last" by Etta James, which I think, is the perfect song for this great tradition!
