Lots of good advice so far. Thanks.

I know lucky 7 but had not thought of changing the number. I usually vary it by asking people to call it in French, German, Serbo croat and silently.
I don't know the dance haste to the wedding dance. ( Know the tune). Where can I find it please.?
I like the idea of the couples finding other couples. What dance do you use for this?
I've seen Rosa danced but not sure I could call it.   

Pete - is the wiltshire 6 hand dance where they walk forward and back as a line to start with?

Will - I appreciate you saying don't plan. The band always say they would like a programme in advance and I never give them one for the reasons you have outlined. I once went to a dance where the caller decided the dance after the people who wanted to dance stood up. This saves all the hanging about for the fourth couple to make up the set. I think he knew more dances than me. Clever.

I use in and out the dusty bluebells for kids with them starting the line off, after I have done a circle dance. Any other good ones?
