The Anniversary Celebration Dance

Many of our clients have indicated their dislike of the Bouquet & Garter Ceremony or the lack of single guests at their reception.  ATMOSPHERE PRODUCTIONS has devised a suitable alternative, “The Anniversary Celebration Dance”. Here’s how it works: We will invite ALL married couples to the dance floor (including the Bride & Groom) and then play “Through The Years” Kenny Rogers, “Holding Back The Years” Simply Red or “Grow Old With Me” Mary Chapin Carpenter (it’s your choice…pick your favorite). After 30 seconds we will invite everyone who has been married for 5 years or less to move to the edge of the dance floor and start forming a circle with the Bride & Groom. We ask them NOT to sit down.  We will do this for 10, 15, 20 years etc. until we have the longest married couple in the center of the dance floor. At this point the Bride & Groom will present the Bouquet to the couple and the DJ will then ask the longest married couple for any advice for our newlyweds.

If not, consider an additional plan or upgrade that will protect you from theft, loss or dam
