Lucky Seven shouldn't be a problem to anyone. You assume that some of them will miscount and tell them so as you're walking through it. If they walk it through okay first time no problem. If they don't, all those who finish up without a partner have to do is look around quickly and run and find the other person(s) without a partner and swing them.

Here's a typical programme for weddings from our repertoire of 40 years playing/calling/dancing.

Blaydon Races
Bridge of Athlone
Waves of Tory
Lucky Seven
Cumberland Square
Ninepins
Nottingham Swing

Gay Gordons
Pat-a Cake Polka
Silly Threesome
Swedish Masquerade
Gypsy's Wedding
Flowers of May
Veleta
Oxo Reel
Drops o' Brandy

As for local dances, they're all local if you want to change their names slightly, nudge, nudge, wink, wink!

Kent Square 8
Rochester Swing
Dover Reel
All the way to Eastbourne
Maidenhead Masquerade.
