Your wedding dance moment

When you have dreamed about the perfect romantic moment all your life, when that moment finally comes, you want it to last forever. We are talking about the wedding first dance, and if you follow that logic (or that emotion), you can make the moment lose some of its magic. Your wedding day is approaching, and between now and then, you have a million decisions to make and there will definitely be little emergencies to attend to. The best approach is to find a quiet place with your intended, grab a pen and paper and a cup of your favorite relaxing beverage, and realize that your life-time of solving problems together has already begun. What you hope to accomplish when you plan your wedding is coordinate, and to eliminate all of the little things that can keep you from enjoying the day to the max. So, the following tips are to help you keep your wedding first dance in its place as one of your most romantic moments of the day.

Not too fast, not too slow

Chances are that the song you choose as your wedding dance song is a romantic melody with great lyrics that are full of meaning. You probably knew that would be your song the first time you listened to it together while sitting on the beach watching the night sky. Chances also are pretty good that the composer did not write the song with dancing in mind. So you will need to take that song for a spin. Try to dance to it. You may come to the uncomfortable realization that the song is too fast or too slow for dancing. If you are set on the song being a part of your wedding, perhaps you could have it playing in the background as you are cutting your cake…

The perfect length

It is safe to assume that the average song is 3-plus minutes in duration. Three minutes is no time at all if you are on a ride in an amusement park, but if you are boxing or dancing, three minutes is a long time. This is a problem for your guests because they will become bored, but it is also a problem for you because unless you are a world class dancer, you will be performing the same steps repeatedly for what will seem like an awfully long time. If your song is one of those songs in which the chorus seems to never end, this can also make the dance feel awkward. The best thing to do is to dance for about 1½ minutes, then have the DJ invite the other guests to dance with you for the remainder of the song.

Expanding your dance horizons

As mentioned above, many couples are limited in their ability to dance. The reality is that many people do not have the time or the resources to take dance lessons for their wedding first dance. However, now there is an affordable way for couples to take lessons for their first wedding dance. Actually, this is not just lessons; this is instruction from a wedding dance choreographer.

Joshua Love is a wedding dance choreographer who has spent many years helping couples with their wedding dance. He realized the problems and challenges that couples faced in trying to learn to dance and stay within their budget for their wedding expenses. This is why he got together with his partner Mariela Busheva and created the “Wedding Dance to Remember” 3 DVD set. You can learn a beautiful wedding dance from the comfort of your living room while saving $1,000′s that you would normally spend taking dance lessons at a studio. The complete set is incredibly affordable. Visit their website today to learn more and increase your dancing skills no matter what your skill set.

Wedding dance lessons

Realizing the need for dance lessons

Wedding dance lessons are as important as picking out your tuxedo. Whether we choose to admit it or not, the wedding day is steeped in many traditions and one of the strongest traditions is the wedding first dance. A little twinge of apprehension is felt every time the first dance is mentioned. You begin to realize how important it is because it comes up in conversation often. Apprehension turns to nervousness as you take in just how much time has been devoted to picking music for the wedding and the reception. You are less than confident that when it comes to a traditional dance, if you will be able to coordinate even the most rudimentary moves. This is when you seriously consider wedding dance lessons.

Set your dance goals

The pursuit of your wedding dance lessons needs to be taken with certain seriousness because you want to learn, but understand that this is a fun pursuit also. Like anything else, you want to establish a goal. Determine whether you are you interested in learning only the wedding first dance, or are you would like to learn two or three different dances to spend some serious time on the floor.  For example, you may want to learn a waltz, to salsa, and the Cha-cha. Having those three dances in your repertoire can keep you on the floor for quite a while.  Perhaps you and your intended would like to entertain and impress your guests with a choreographed wedding dance. It may be that you feel you simply need a refresher course to get your rhythm back. Whatever your motivation is, set the goal to keep you focused.

The next step is to determine where you plan to take lessons, and how much you are willing to spend. The truth is that very few people actually consider expenses for dance lessons in their wedding budget, yet there is so much emphasis placed on the first wedding dance. Chances are that as the day grows close, this has caught you somewhat off guard. Weddings are not something that we have a lot of experience with, and by no you have a clear understanding how things that are significantly important, can fall between the cracks and pop up at the last minute. You also need to consider how much time you have in your busy schedule to devote to private lessons. Most importantly, for many couples, adding an extra expense means cutting back on some other part of the wedding budget.

A fun and affordable option

If you are serious about dance instruction, and then got sticker shock when you enquired about lessons at a dance studio, there is still an opportunity for you to receive dance instruction from a wedding dance choreographer. Joshua Love, a renowned wedding dance choreographer has helped couples prepare for their wedding dance for many years. He recognized that many couples face the very same challenges when it comes to preparing for their wedding dance. So, Joshua and his partner Mariela Busheva created the “Wedding Dance to Remember” 3 DVD set to help you prepare for your wedding dance in the easiest way possible without breaking the bank.

Choosing that special wedding song for your first wedding dance

It is important to know how to choose the best wedding songs. Your wedding is a party on steroids… it is the biggest party of your life. You already know that if you do not pay attention to details, you will be sorry later. Your choice of music may or may not break your party but you still want to get it right. You want to create the ultimate playlist because you never know how a special song will affect the moment. So the two of you should find a quiet and happy moment and go through the exercise of putting together your play list of songs. It will be one of the most fun things that you do to prepare for your wedding.

The first song that you want to select is your first dance song. The first dance as a married couple is like the christening of a ship. It is definitely one of the highlights of your wedding day. It is one of your most anticipated memories. It is also a chance to share the personality of your relationship with friends and loved ones. So keep an open mind and be yourself when you pick your first dance song.

Assess your style

This is the time to ask yourself some honest questions like what kind of couple you are. At this point it would be very helpful to know what kind of wedding you are planning. Sit down and think about songs, but also consider your favorite artists. Favorite artists will definitely point you towards favorite songs. Getting back to who you are begs the question, are you given to tradition or are you progressive, or are you rebels. You need to consider if a certain genre of music, such as jazz or country music will give your wedding a cultural flavor that is important to you.

Important points about your wedding song

The song should really be about your relationship. If you were able to give everyone a snapshot of your relationship, your song should be it. The choice of song, as much as the song itself, should mean something to the both of you. Just for grins, you should consider the classics and love songs from the 40s and 50s. Ask your Grandparents for some suggestions. Be very careful to read the lyrics after you have chosen contemporary songs because words represent you as much as the music. Some songs sound romantic but their words are actually a break up love song. Whatever you decide on, make it the one you want because after all, it is your party.

Remember you have to dance too

Do not make the classic mistake of waiting for the last minute to prepare for your first dance. Did you ever imagine that you could get dance lessons from a wedding dance choreographer? You can and you will not need to break the bank or cut something from the wedding budget.

Learning to dance after you have your wedding music

Are you ready with your best wedding music? The planning for your wedding is probably chugging along like a well oiled machine. You may have spent countless hours on picking out a dress that should be to die for and your wedding colors were probably your first order of business. Once those details and the food has been decided upon, it is time to pay some attention to the music. With the exception of the first wedding dance, for many couples the music can be an afterthought, but at the end of the day it’s the music that gives your wedding an ambiance and warmth that will be memorable. After all, music is a key factor during almost every moment of the day, from the walk down the aisle to your reception finale. More importantly, music is a reflection of your personalities. We are not trying to move music to the top of the list, but consider the following tips that will save you some uncomfortable moments.

Make your first dance memorable, not tiring

Do not make your guests stand around waiting for your entire dance. Create a designated time for your attendants to join you on the floor during the final few minutes of the dance. Or you can pre-arrange with the DJ to make an announcement for everyone to join you on the floor. The decision is yours, but this should be a consideration, especially is your song is a long one.

Do not start off in silence

All the focus and the attention is on the entrance of the bride, so it is easy to forget that there is likely be 20 minutes to an hour where guests are sitting in the venue waiting for the service to start. Ambiance is everything. This would be a great time for some upbeat easy listening music. Think of it as being the opening act, and you are the headliner. Everyone will be in a mood for a wedding when you begin your march.

The venue affects sound

Many couples choose a destination wedding. Brides and grooms need to take into consideration how the venue affects sound, for example, saying your vows in a natural setting with waterfalls in the foreground may be beautiful and romantic, but that waterfall may be all that you can hear on the wedding video, or the waves crashing, or the wind on a blustery hilltop. That does not mean that you cancel the destination, just keep in mind that you may need microphones. Could you imagine not being able to hear the first dance music?

Be mindful sensitive venues

It is your wedding, but if it is in a church, have a modicum of decorum when it comes to ceremony  and the background music. Most churches and synagogues have rules and restrictions that may affect your choice of music that can be played as you walk down the aisle.

The “no play” list

It is always a good idea to provide a must-play list for the DJ, but sometimes it is more important to present him or her with a short do-not-play list. You certainly do not want a song with painful associations to pop up for anyone. What could be more embarrassing than your grandmother, or your aunt the nun, sitting through a song with r-rated lyrics.

Prepare for your first dance

What good is a picture perfect moment camera man is shaky? You have picked the perfect song, you had a beautiful ceremony and you are both dressed to the nines. It is time for the first dance, and this is no time to discover that the groom has two left feet. This is no time to wing it because the camera is rolling. The good news is that no matter what your skill level is, you can get professional help from a wedding dance choreographer.

At this point you are probably thinking that you cannot afford this. However, Joshua Love, a renowned wedding dance choreographer realized that so many couples are challenged by making their dreams align with their budget. Joshua and his partner Mariela Busheva created the “Wedding Dance to Remember” 3 DVD set to help you create the perfect first dance without breaking the bank. In fact, the DVD set costs about the same as your first date. You can learn a beautiful wedding dance from the comfort of your living room while saving $1,000′s that you would normally spend taking dance lessons at a studio.

Capturing the wedding and the first wedding dance

If you are wondering why it is important to have a wedding video, it is because no two weddings are ever the same. Hopefully, there will never be two weddings that are the same. Weddings should be like snowflakes, each one should be as different as the individuals at the altar. One of the questions that newlyweds always face is will they record their wedding on video, and will they pay the expense of a professional videographer, or will they ask a friend or relative with a camera to capture the moments. No one can decide that for you, but just bear in mind that video captures an event in a way that photographs cannot. Just as Photos capture snapshots that tell the story in a different way from videos.

The reasons for people to decide on a wedding video vary with each couple. Some couples think that video is a waste of money because they spend so much on photography. This is perfectly fine but there are some moments that seem to just be created for the express purpose of videography. Two of those moments that come to mind are the sharing of the vows and the couple during their first dance. For example, a professionally shot video that pans from the bride to the groom as they exchange vows. Envision a cut-away to the mothers as they watch their son or daughter at the altar. Imagine a slow pan up and to the left as the father gives the bride away. Split screens can show the genuine emotions of friends, relatives and guests during the ceremony. There are so many moments to capture during the wedding ceremony.

Capturing the wedding reception and the first wedding dance

One place a videographer will get the essence of the day is at the reception. You will reminisce as you hear and see the sights and the sounds of laughter and conversation of your guests. The highlight of the party and the second biggest moment of the day will be the first dance of the newlyweds. The audio alone will generate fond memories as the couple will listen to their special song being played. Then the visage of them moving across the floor in step with each other as the videographer captures close ups of the look on their faces. No one can tell you what is best for your wedding, but video recording the wedding and reception is rarely, if ever regretted.

Preparing for your first dance

It seems that every important moment of the wedding is rehearsed except the newlywed first dance. This is because it is part of the reception; hence, it is just assumed that the couple will pull off a simple slow dance across the floor. Your dance should be every bit the perfect moment that you want it to be. Whatever music you choose and whatever your dance, you can get the perfect music and the perfect dance for your music all choreographed and taught to you by a wedding choreographer.

Joshua Love is a professional wedding dance choreographer. Couples have been coming to him for many years to help them prepare their perfect wedding dance.

We are becoming a nation of dancers

This recent trend can be attributed to the fact that dancing has come to the forefront of the public consciousness, as the television airwaves are experiencing a logjam of dancing shows from the US, France, Britain, Korea, and the Philippines just to name a few. The trend is popular and it is a good thing because dancing whether it is two people or twenty people, requires the participants to work together and to collaborate.

The most intriguing question these days what will happen during the first wedding dance.

The first dance of your wedding is the expression of a new generation who feels the freedom to inject more of their own personality into a time-honored tradition. Traditionalists still have no need to fear. Nothing will ever completely replace the romantic appeal of the first dance for husband and wife. Just remember, next time you are at a wedding and you are ready to take a video of that first dance, make sure that your batteries are charged and you have plenty of memory left because the first dance might last for a while.

Preparing for your own dance

As your wedding day draws closer, you will know exactly what you choose to do for your wedding dance. Whether you choose a traditional slow romantic dance, a salsa, or an advanced routine from your favorite video; you can do anything you choose and you do not need to worry about missing a step because you can take dance lessons to prepare you for your big day. Ordinarily, dance lessons can cost you thousands, but you can sharpen your skills, or just plain learn to dance, from a wedding dance choreographer, for about the same price as a first date.
