If there’s a time during your wedding day that may be more nerve wracking than saying your vows, it’s the moment when you step onto the floor as a couple for your first dance. All eyes will be on you, so, while you don’t need to dance like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, you will want to look as graceful as you can.
Here are a few first wedding dance tips:
- Choose the right song. If either of you have two left feet, don’t be tempted to opt for a fast dance number. Pick a song that means something to both of you – something that will make you smile and help you relax.
- Rehearse in your new wedding shoes or other footwear that has a similar heel height. This will ensure that you get your balance right. Also, you should consider the style of your wedding dress and whether it will restrict your movements when dancing.
- If you’re really nervous, just opt for a strategy of holding each other tight, swaying in time to the music and arranging for the best man and bridesmaid to join you on the dance floor halfway through.
Nobody will be expecting a grand performance, so stick with what feels right to you and enjoy it as much as you can. What do you plan to do? If you’re looking for a wedding dance lesson studio in Virginia to take dance lessons, please click here for our wedding professional recommendations.
