Congratulations, you are getting married! The excitement of an engagement has settled and you are now ready to start planning your perfect day. Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. It’s a day of celebration that is filled with love, friendship, and family and your first dance as a married couple will be one you remember forever. With all of this planning it’s understandable that you may be nervous, if you are a bride or groom considering doing a first dance for you wedding day, here are 5 reasons why you should consider walking the wedding dance down the aisle!
(ps. I thoroughly apologize for all the up-coming puns in this article-- you have been warned)
1. Bonding with your other half.
It’s understandable that dancing can be intimidating if you have never done it before, and dancing in front of a whole crowd can be as equally daunting. All eyes will be on you and your partner so it is important to feel confident and comfortable. Dancing with your partner can do just that, when dancing you are connecting with your partner through a whole new level. It is the first dance you are having as a married couple, and you are the knot through a special bond with dance on your special day! A wedding dance can only add more love and appreciation for one another on the dance floor.
2. Adds excitement to your special day
Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. It's filled with a mix of emotions that flood your body. With this in mind, a wedding dance can be a wonderful experience that can add excitement to your special day. Sometimes weddings can be overwhelming for the bride and groom. You have to send your thanks to all of your guests for attending and making sure everyone is having a good time. With all of that wed-and-done (get it, wed-and done-- said and done…..I’m sorry) when it comes to that time to dance with your partner, it can help you feel at ease. Dancing, hanging out, and just enjoying an uninterrupted moment of happiness with your partner can be a moment that you will both remember for a very long time.
3. Entertaining for guests and for you
The first dance can be one that all of your wedding guests can remember for years to come. A wedding dance doesn’t have to be a uniform dance, you can easily get creative with it! A wedding dance can be uniquely your own and you can add as much spouse to it as you want (spouse-- spice… 😏i'm proud of myself on that one). Picture this, you and your partner can create a funny dance to a funny song with some of your favourite dance moves and just have as much fun (you can even incorporate some of your closest friends and family for ultimate entertainment!) Not only will you guys have the best “first dance” for the history books, but you will be having so much fun creating it and performing it.
4. Unforgettable experience
Any wedding is an unforgettable experience, but it can all happen so fast and in a blink of an eye the best day of your life has turned into the best night of your life. When having fun you and your partner's wedding dance can really be the cherry on top! A wedding dance is a moment for you and your spouse to bask in the glory of being unified. When on the dance floor time disappears, everything around you becomes background noise and all you can notice is it’s just you and your loved one soaking up every second with each other as your first few moments as a married couple.
5. Can be the start of a new hobby.
A wedding dance can be a great introduction to a new found love—dance! And your wedding preparation can introduce you to new things you never knew you were interested in. When planning your wedding dance you may be taking some dance lessons to prepare for the big day and may end up falling in love with something new, (new obviously meaning dance) So why not go for it? Sign up for that dance class and see where it might take you, at the heart of it dance has its arms open for everyone and everything, and once you get started you may not want to stop.
At the end of the day, your wedding day is one of the most unforgettable days of your life. It is filled with devotion and light that celebrates love and unity and what better way to express that than through dance. It connects everyone through music and movement when words are not enough and allows you to create memories that will last forever. A wedding dance can be uniquely yours and can even put you on the path of a new dancing journey.
