Your first dance song should be meaningful to you as a couple.
Double check the lyrics incase your song is about breaking up, it’s surprising how many songs seem romantic but lyrically they aren’t!
A song with a clear, steady beat will make dancing together much easier for you.
HAVE A GO!
Grab your partner and pretend it’s your first dance. Get used to dancing together, make up some moves and get to know your first dance song really well.
IF YOU’VE NO IDEA & TWO LEFT FEET, GET HELP!
These days it’s quite normal for couples to take some first dance lessons to learn how to dance together in preparation for their first dance.
QUALITY NOT QUANTITY
The ideal length for a perfect first dance is 2-3 minutes, any longer and your guests will get distracted.
A brilliant short dance is much better than a mediocre long dance, it’s got more impact and you’ll look more confident as you’ll know the steps better as there are less of them to remember.
If your song is longer than 2-3 minutes, ask your DJ to fade the music or invite your guests to join you on the dance floor for the rest of the song.
READY, CAMERA, ACTION!
Film your dance lessons and/or practice sessions so you can watch back and ensure you’re doing it correctly… you’ll be surprised how good you look!
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT
The more you practice, the greater your confidence and smoother your movements will be.
Knowing your dance really well will make it look more comfortable and natural on the day. Plus you’ll have much more fun knowing you can relax and not worry about your first dance.
Also, if you can, practice in shoes that are similar to the ones you’ll be wearing on your wedding day.
HEY MR DJ…..
If you’re doing a choreographed first dance let your DJ know so they play your track in full from the start, rather than fading it in.
Copy your track onto a blank cd and label it to avoid any confusion, ask someone trustworthy to give it to the DJ on the day.
Don’t forget to let your photographer know you’re doing a choreographed first wedding dance so they can be ready to get some great shots of key moments, such as dips, twirls and for brave couples maybe even a lift!
DON’T STOP MOVING!
If you make a mistake, keep dancing! The chances are that only you will know it happened.
Just relax, breath and recover as you want to have fun and enjoy the once in a lifetime experience that is your first wedding dance.
