" We turned our dance lessons into a dinner and dancing date! It became a welcomed weekly escape from our hectic wedding planning." Cindy Rich, Newlywed and Senior Writer of Washingtonian Magazine "

Before twitter, blogs, chat boards, online review sites, and Groupons, The Wedding Dance Specialists had compiled all of these concepts into our complimentary Wedding Planning newsletterfor over a decade ago! Our intention was and remains to provide engaged couples with a head start on wedding preparations and wedding dance lessons from both the newlywed and wedding vendor perspective!. We know how stressful planning a wedding can be even under ideal circumstances and since life happens while you are making plans, our goal is to help you stay sane so you can dance down the aisle to "I Do!" -- Sincerely, Deborah Joy and Brian Block, Founders of The Wedding Dance Specialists

Registering for Gifts

How do your guests find out where you are registered? The old fashioned way -- word of mouth. Traditionally the practice of including lists of gift registries along with wedding invitations is considered inappropriate and is discouraged. When guests call to congratulate the couple, they can ask for this information or contact their Mothers or the Maid of Honor or be referred to the couple's wedding website. Enjoy the process of building your nest! The following are tips for registering for gifts:

Consider your needs both presently and in the future.
Register as soon as possible and certainly before invitations are sent.
Register for items in a variety of price ranges.
Register in national chain stores.
Don't register for the same things at different stores.
Don't insist that guests use the registry. Sometimes carefully chosen surprises are the most favorite gifts of all!
