So you are fairly well advanced with all your wedding planning, dress, flowers, venue, minister etc all are booked and there is not too much more to do. But.. what are you going to do about that all important first dance – wing it, or go all out and wow your guests with a choreographed routine that makes you look like a professional out there on the floor?
This really is a personal choice and there are no hard and fast rules to follow. Many couples are happy to just sway together to the music and basically stand still in the middle of the floor, but then there are those who want a little more flair to their first dance. This is when taking dancing lessons is a must. There are many ballrooms now that offer specific first dance classes. They will take complete novices and over the course of six weeks or so teach a routine that will make you both shine!
Wedding dancing lessons are not just for the bride and groom either. Lessons can be taken by the entire wedding party, or maybe the parents of the bride and groom would also like to be able to do more than just sway too! Perhaps as the parents of the bride or groom, you could approach the other parents and see if this is something you would like to do together. What better way to get to know each other a little better and have a few laughs along the way.
