The first dance at a wedding reception is a great chance for a couple to show off their individual style, and maybe have a little fun in the process. 

But one bride has been accused of taking it too far after revealing in a Facebook group she intends to have seven first dances at her wedding complete with 'costume changes', hoverboards and roller skating. 

A screenshot of the bizarre plan was posted in Reddit's popular wedding-shaming forum with the poster explaining they spotted the bride's admission as a response to another bride's plan to have five dances.

"Go for it! We're having so many," she encouraged. 

"First dance with costume change; parents dance, us and our parents; Mother son dance (on hoverboards) my son and me; cloud dance; anniversary dance; roller skating dance; Elvis dance."

The bride was immediately asked to elaborate on the lengthy list, with someone asking: "What are all of your guests supposed to do during all of these dances?"

But the unruffled bride replied that it would be "very entertaining".

The bizarre comment captured the attention of the Internet.

"Our first dance will have a video of how we met and our journey of how we got to where we are... the song is 'Tell Your Heart to Beat Again'."

Meanwhile, the 'hoverboard dance' will also have a video, featuring "all our guests, [the] years they've been married and their wedding advice to us".

The bride intended the accompanying song to be 'Honey I'm Good' by Andy Grammar - infamously a song about a man wanting to cheat on his wife but choosing not to. Cute!

She also revealed plans to get her in-laws - who have been married 64 years - to take part in the roller skating dance as they met at a skating rink.

"I'm hoping to try to get them on skates, apparently his dad used to tap dance on skates. But they are old, obviously," she added.

But if you're worried the guests will be bored during the lengthy production, never fear.

The bride added: "We're also offering free ballroom dance lessons before the ceremony and line dances during cocktail hour for the guests. They will not get bored."

The post racked up over 100 comments from shocked Redditors unable to believe the bride was planning something they saw as so self-indulgent. 

Commenting on the post, one gobsmacked person said: "This sounds so obnoxious. It's a wedding, not a musical. Guests won't tell her to her face, but no one's interested in or entertained by this ridiculous production."

Another tried to be fair to the bride, but had to admit the lunacy. 

"It seems like she put A LOT of thought and symbolism into these dances. But realistically she should know that most people would pay attention for about a minute of each before going back to their drinks and talking."

Another took issue with one element of the dance in particular. 

"The parents have been married for 64 years, so they are probably at least 84. And she wants to put them on roller skates? Hello, broken hips!" they pointed out.
