This is a special opportunity to showcase all of the couples who have been married longer than you and your new bride or groom. At the end of the dance, a good DJ will have the longest married couple giving a tidbit of advice to the newest married couple. Let us take a look at how it works.
First, all married couples are invited to the dance floor.
The disc jockey will kindly invite your guest to dance. Its fun to group up and start the dancing. by this time an after dinner cocktail will loosen up many knees and hips.
Next, eliminate couples year by year.
You might hear something like this from the PA system, “If you have been married a year or longer please step off of the dance floor.” Remember the wedding couple is excluded from being booted off the dance floor.
The DJ will move along the years and decades to thin out the crowd. A good DJ will gauge the guest and move along the years according. You don’t want them to jump to all the 40 year and older marriages, but on the other side, you don’t want them to run down year by year.
If have been married longer than 40 years please step off of the dance floor
Finally, the last two couples are on the dance floor.
When the disc-jockey has voted everyone but you and the oldest married couple off the dance floor then it gets sweet. The winners will have an opportunity to give a bit of marriage advice to the newest wedding couple in the reception hall.
Where does this fit in your wedding reception timeline?
In Texas, the anniversary dance is placed after the formal dancing. Some of your older guests will leave the reception early and its best to get them out on the dance floor before they head home for the night.
Are there any other ways to do the Anniversary Dance?
Yes, you can excuse the newly married couple right off the bat. Its fun and comical to hear the DJ announce, “If you have been married less than 4 hours, please step off the dance floor.” Next is the boring part. The bride and groom are expected to stand on the sideline and wait for the dance game to play out.
Not big on dancing? Wearing beautiful shoes that hurt to dance in? Then this could be the perfect way to have the dance and not hurt your feet. The video above lets you share the moment without booting anyone from the dancefloor.
Here are a few ideas for songs to play during the dance:
From San Angelo, you head northwest for an hour and a half and you will arrive at Garden City. The church and reception site all sit on the same property. Keeping your wedding and reception all at one location helps the day run smooth.
Once the reception was underway, west Texas thunderstorms rolled in. You can see a timelapse in the video below.
Thanks for watching. If we can solve any of your wedding planning questions please reach out or text Derrick Perrin

You cannot get anything of us that is simple and sober and unimaginative. We always put our best foot forward and we never let our customers feel sorry or at lost for the videos we produce. Perhaps a lot of it comes from the fact that we love our job and also, we love to give people memories worth revisiting.
This month marks the year anniversary for the Schaefers. Congrats you two on the achievement. You can view their wedding video above. The Schaefer’s were married at St Lawrence Parish. We love this parish because like Rowena, everything happens in one location. If you are the bride to be you can get ready, get married, and have a huge reception all within a few hundred yards of where you park.
If you are not familiar with the area here is a map. Its a stretch from San Angelo, but puts you out in the country with no distractions.
Thanks for watching, and congratulations to the happy couple. Cheers to you and your one-year anniversary. To watch additional wedding videos please visit our Wedding Film Page.
We fell in love with the community of Rowena the first time we stepped into town. It is small, it is tight knit, it is Texas. Breanne and Brandon were our 3rd couple to shoot at St. Joseph’s. The church has a great fellowship hall right down the road. https://vimeo.com/156494696
Thanks for watching this Rowena wedding video. And we thank the new couple for having us at their big event. -Derrick Perrin

You can’t have a West Texas Bridal Showcase without a cake dive. Soon we will be posting the video from the dive. Its about 20 seconds of bridal cake shrapnel flying all over the place. It looks fun. The bride who finds the toy ring wins an actual ring from Cano’s Diamonds.
We hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did. Thanks for stopping by.
