our dance improv
You may recall that Tommy and I were given a couple dance lessons as an engagement gift. These lessons were wicked fun! The professionals taught us a few moves so we could choreograph it ourselves. And we did! We even went to the dance studio a couple times to practice in those days leading up to the wedding. We were ready!!
Then. Moments before we went onto the dance floor, while we were crazy giggly ecstatic after our ceremony, we decided to practice our FAVORITE dance dip in the dressing room!
Thank goodness we practiced because...
I stumbed, tripped over my dress, and heard a little rip. Yikes. My dress, though professionally bustled, was indeed, too long. Throughout the day it kept lengthening...which was not anticipated. And so instead of getting annoyed with the situation...we started laughing and just drank some more champagne.
When we went out on the floor, with 100 sets of eyes on us, we lit-er-a-ly improvised. It was totally off the cuff. We couldn't do our favorite dance dip...we couldn't do the dance we choreographed!!
But we smiled and laughed and he twirled me and we managed a dip in there somewhere! I sang a few words to him because our song is the cutest lil thing and I love it. And I love Tommy. And I would sing sweet love songs to him all day if I could. We ended our song with a kiss...we didn't practice that... but really, you can't kiss enough on your wedding day.
