A Wedding Dance to Remember…
One of the most exciting aspects of the preparation for a wedding is the wedding dance. Many couples want to learn Waltz for their first dance as it is traditional and romantic. It is indeed a good choice, classic, practical and easy to learn. However, to have that unforgettable wedding dance couples and the wedding planner must be extra creative. There is way more to dancing than just holding and swaying, and to create an unforgettable wedding experience, couples must embrace the art of the dance.
Some excellent choices of dance styles full of life include:
Waltz – elegant, sweeping and full of romance
Foxtrot – spirited yet smooth
Tango – fiery, intimate and bold
Rumba – sexy and passionate
Country Western Waltz – playful and engaging
Cultural – popular expression of heritage
Remember that there are a couple of things that must be considered when choosing the wedding dance. Some of the factors depend upon the personalities of the bride and groom, the wedding attire, the reception theme and the guest list.
The adventurous bride and groom who think skydiving is a nice way to spend an afternoon may be more suited to the foxtrot than the waltz or some wedding guests may find the passionate rumba overly personal, especially if children are present, so an understanding of the guest list is helpful.
Whatever the choice would be, the wedding couple should learn that practice makes perfect and therefore a dance class is highly recommended. Taking even one dance class can give the wedding couple the right moves, confidence and fun!
The wedding dance is always a big moment for the bride, the groom and for the guests who are lucky to get to watch. It is a particular special and shining moment that most of the guests awaits. Some, while watching with a tear in the eye may be dreaming about how their first dance will be once they get married. In the eye of a wedding critic or spectator, everything matters from the bride’s gown, wedding theme, down to tiniest detail such as the groom’s pair of shoes!
Make sure that the wedding dance is even more special by being keen into details. Add great ideas such as the use of lighting by making it a little dimmer, with a spotlight focused on the wedding couple. Release butterflies in the middle of the moment or produce bubbles to create a fairy tale effect. There are lots of creative ideas to add to make the wedding dance a definite fun and hard to forget. However the most important part is always the couple as they are bound to share their lives together ‘for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health… till death do they part.”
