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.
