We wanted to get people to the dance floor ASAP, so directly after toasts we did the mother/groom dance, the father/daughter dance followed by the first dance...and then we had a rave.
As soon as Ryan and I got off the dance floor we dashed for the head table where I had glowsticks (from the Target dollar spot!) ready and waiting. "Sandstorm" came on, we ran over to the table where all of his ushers were, we handed out glow sticks right and left, and wonderful things happened...
I cannot tell you how hard I was laughing, it was absolutely awesome! Most of Ryan's runners were dancing, and a ton of his old co-workers hopped onto the dance floor too.
It was so Ryan, and I am so, so glad we did it. It was a blast for him and his friends (lets be honest...everyone thought it ruled), and it really got the party going in a big way. The dance floor was packed all night.
Did you add anything to your reception that was a big hit?
