Wedding receptions are the best parties ever! Food, drinks and all your friends!

I guess we are more casual because at our weddings people can dance alone or in groups ..... and sober too. LOL

Best wedding besides my own - a Polish wedding with a Polka band and the family owned a liquor store.

*I honestly don't know why you feel this way. Did something bad happen to you at a wedding reception that involved a single person? I'm not mocking you, baiting you or trying to be mean. I'm serious.
*I've been to several wedding receptions. Some I went alone, some as a couple. Some receptions had alcohol, some were in church reception halls and alcohol-free. I've yet to go to a wedding reception where anything bad happened to a couple or single person. At the parties, I danced a lot. I have no problem dancing all by myself to fast songs. I do it all the time and, usually other single people end up coming out on the floor and dancing with me..even though we don't know each other. Other times, I just danced alone. Dancing makes me feel happy and free, alcohol or not. I never creep on anyone's man. I have never hooked up at a reception. I may slow dance with someone, but that's all. I don't typically stay very long, whether I'm single or with someone. Weddings just aren't my thing. I had a small intimate one myself with a small reception with alcohol that everyone thoroughly enjoyed. There were single people there. MOST people know how to properly conduct themselves at a wedding reception. Not drinking too much is something nobody should do, unless the bride and groom and whomever paid for the wedding wants to get smashed. I stay for a few dances, a slice of cake, 1 or 2 glasses of wine, then I give my love to the bride and groom and leave. I have a good time.
*Now, what is so wrong with that?

Maybe because the OP is male and feels like he must formally ask someone to dance one on one?

My friends and I have no problem asking each other to dance with their spouses or just dancing alone or in a group.

The situation he is describing is like attending a cotillion and not a wedding of friends.:)

One wedding reception I went to in the northern USA had in fact the most intoxicating type of booze possible; Polish Blackberry Brandy!

P.S. I have just found out a few seconds ago that Polish Blackberry Brandy is 35 percent alcohol by volume which makes it 70 proof, and a 1 ounce serving packs 9.9 grams of alcohol.

At wedding receptions, people, only those who are hooked up with someone have any chance of having a good time, especially when it comes to the dancing. As I am sure everyone knows, one of the main activities of a wedding reception is social dancing. That includes slow dancing, smooth jazz, occasional country music, and such, which is why the vast majority of wedding receptions are held at a place that has a dance floor, most commonly at banquet halls, though some receptions do take place outdoors, especially those that take place under one of those circus type tents (sometimes referred to as a "big top"). When it comes to the dancing, singles generally have absolutely no fun and no luck at all.
For singles, all of the fun that the wedding/wedding reception has to offer runs right into a concrete wall right at the end of the dinner.
For singles, the dancing part is nothing but heartache, rejection, put-downs, and sometimes even outright aggression from other guests.
For singles, the dance time of a wedding reception has an atmosphere more equivilant to that of an after-school detention than anything else.
To make matters worse, in pretty much the entire northern half of the country, especially in states such as Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Alaska, Montana, Maine, North Dakota, and Vermont, society has a more drinking culture than a dancing culture. In the northern states, people don't dance at all, neither at wedding receptions nor at even common dance/DJ clubs. Instead, they drink, and they drink, and they drink, drink, drink, drink. Until they are wasted drunk, until they are throwing up left and right all over the place, until they start causing fights and brawls, until they start making a gigantic mess of the whole place by breaking glass bottles on the floor, spilling drinks everywhere, dumping napkins over, knocking over cakes and desserts, until they are so stoned out that they can not drive more than 3 blocks without crashing and burning. And northerners don't just get wasted on beer. They also get wasted on whiskey, vodka, brandy, those liquor "shots" that they pour into those 5-tablespoon sized cups and then drink, and other 80+ proof junk, so often, the dance floor is totally empty by about 30 minutes into dance time.

Singles hoping/looking to have fun at a wedding reception will be in for a massive shock. As it turns out, wedding receptions (where people dance, party, and have fun after the ceremonies) are not a good place at all for single and/or "stag" people to be at. More often than not, singles who attend wedding receptions are often brutally rejected by the other guests of the wedding/wedding reception, refused dances, and treated like sewage sludge. It is particularly common in especially the northern United States of America, including, in particular, states such as Wisconsin, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, Alaska, Idaho, Vermont, Michigan, Illinois, Wyoming, North and South Dakota, and Nebraska.
I completely agree..
I usually head for a good wake or a funeral to pick up a date.

The only other types of people likely to have fun at a wedding reception, especially in the northern states (including the entire Frost Belt region), are people who go to the reception as a tight-knit clique. Singles will be rejected by others and will not have a good time. In many northern states especially, the "asking to dance" very often comes from nobody. Neither from males, nor from females. Literally like a road with both directions closed by construction. It may happen in certain far-southern states (Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Hawaii, etc), but in the rest of the nation, if you are single, forget it! In fact, if you are single and/or not part of a tight-knit clique and you are invited to a wedding, I highly recommend either avoiding the reception alltogether, or at the very least, leave the reception the instant the dinner is over and the dancing begins.

In many areas of America, especially within the Frost Belt region, neither men nor women ask anyone to dance 1 on 1 at wedding receptions. Women may, on rare occasions, ask the man to dance at nightclubs, but even that is rare in most of America, especially in the Frost Belt region.

You are lucky and fortunate that it isn't a Federal Felony for singles to go to weddings, especially wedding receptions. You are lucky singles attending wedding receptions isn't even punishable by as much as 90 years to life in federal prison!

While I hate to blow the odds on that prediction, but twice in the last year my wife and I went to two separate weddings, she to a friend of hers and I to a friend of mine on both occasions, and we both did good with "recreational dancing" not to mention some recreation of another kind [nudge nudge, wink wink] though not in the coat room, that does tend to be a bit of a stereotype.
