A good friend is attending a wedding this weekend in which one of the bridesmaids insists upon performing a dance for the couple with her boyfriend, who is a professional dancer. It’s not a group of bridesmaids performing, or even something the bride and groom requested—she simply wants to show off her moves as a “gift” to the happy couple.
Would you be flattered that your friends wanted to perform for you, or do you think this kind of showmanship detracts from the couple as the center of attention?
Is it more acceptable for a group of loved ones to perform together, as in this charming video? What defines the boundary between a fun dance performance and a showy display?
Does the idea of a bridal party member’s solo dance performance make you want to rant or rave?
