We used the tune to death in Baton Rouge because we only had three couples for quite sometime. But we never did learn the dance Bonnie Anne.
As for three couple dances, the list IS huge! I recommend one that the first couple doesn't immediately interact with the second couple because you'll have third couple stepping up and firsts casting after the first repetition. So things like Reel of the Royal Scots and Maxwell's Rant can be troublesome (but certainly not impossible) with only three couples. I'll second Wendy's suggestion of Flight of the Falcon.

All the (old) recordings for Bonnie Anne are other good sources for
3x32 Jig sets. Does anybody still do Bonnie Anne?
