10 Tips for
The wedding dance can be the most exciting and fun
part of your wedding besides the actual ceremony itself. You can make
your wedding dance more smooth, elegant, and fun. Here are ten tips to
help make the most of this very important first dance.
A lot of people can dance, just some not as well as others, and taking
dance lessons can only improve what skills you already have. The dance
lessons are there to help you both feel more confident in front of
strangers and with each other.
Choosing the right Dance for your reception. There is a variety of
dances to choose from. Some of the more classic and elegant are the
Waltz, and Foxtrot. There are more adventurous dances, though, and if
you want to express your love for each other in a huge way, you can
choose something like the Samba and the Tango. It truly depends on the
type of people you are and how much of a show you want to put on.
The third tip, and maybe should have been second, is choosing your song
if you donít already have one. Your song is something that represents
how you feel about each other and what your love means. Knowing the
right song can make a huge difference in which dance you choose, so I
suggest making it a higher priority than even picking your instructor
and what dance you will be doing.
Now, do you want more than just you and your partner involved in the
wedding dance, if so then why not ask another couple or two to dance
with you at the reception? You need to make sure whomever you ask
practices with you and your spouse before the big day. If you choose
more than one couple, you can open the possibilities of the dance that
If there will be more than just the Newly weds, you can look into
choreographed dances ranging from wild and crazy to flowing grace. One
very wild and crazy dance performed at a wedding was the Moves to
Thriller, the song. Now, if that is not your Style, you can incorporate
the moves to the Swing and the Cha Cha and then have the dancers trade
off partners throughout the song. Another thing you can do is start out
with the bride and groom dancing, and then have others join you from the
audience as though they just thought of the idea.
Having other prepared and practiced partners joining you may give the
other guests the idea to join in, but that can be a good thing. It will
give them a chance to feel as though they are a part of the ceremony,
More on getting only specific and prearranged people to join in your
dance is to have the Bride and Groom go to each one of the others
individually and start dancing with them. They can then, in turn, pick
out another pair, and so on. This will give you the chance to bring each
couple in privately. It is recommended that you use the people from your
wedding party but it is not a requirement.
The gown the Bride will be wearing will also make a huge difference on
what can be danced and what cannot. If the Bride doesnít want to
practice in her gown due to the groom not seeing her in it before the
wedding, then a different gown of similar design and length is needed.
The Bride should also wear the same shoes to dance in as well.
If you are not comfortable with the dance you have chosen, you need to
tell your instructor right away. You will not have to pick a different
dance but it can be changed to suite you and your partner easier.
Practice, practice, and then practice some more. It is the most
important thing to account for to make the wedding dance perfect.
Recap: what is important in planning for the wedding dance? Well,
knowing what you are dancing to, you song is first. Then choosing the
right instructor is next, even if you know how to dance really well,
having a professional to help is always better. They can see where you
need to improve and mediate between any issues concerning how the dance
is supposed to done. Pay attention to what everyone is wearing at the
ceremony and accommodate the practices by wearing very similar clothing.
Remember that, more than likely, someone is going to be taping you, so
have fun and show them that you are meant to be together by doing that
