Practicing for your Wedding Dance

You’ve said your “I do’s” now it’s time to get down and party! Oh yeah! Everyone wants their wedding to be memorable for all the right reasons. Celebrate the beginning of your new married life with laughs, fun, and a full dance floor.

Having a great a DJ has a lot to do with keeping folks entertained and out on the dance floor. But what about the stars of the show? Need to brush up on your dancing skills? Does your husband even have dancing skills? The early you find out the better. You both want to be comfortable dancing and celebrating with your guests on your special night.

For all those couples blessed with naturally smooth moves, you may just want to practice dancing to the song you choose for your first dance. It is a good idea to keep the song short (2-3 minutes)—you may have to make a cut in the song, make sure your DJ has the same version of the song you practice to, and remember to smile and keep things light—no one will know if you make a mistake if you improvise and just keep going. Over-rehearsing can prove to be a problem, so if you have a tendency towards perfection keep your day in perspective and know that all your friends and family care about is you both having a good time on your wedding day.

For couples that want a carefully choreographed number it is advisable to practice months in advance. A couple of weeks is a little tight to be squeezing at least five to ten practice sessions into! If you can, taking a few dance classes with a professional is not a bad idea. The most important thing is to give yourselves time to learn the routine and feel comfortable doing it in your wedding day attire and shoes.

Don’t forget your bridal party! There are some pretty spectacular group dances out there that are perfect examples for inspiration. Some are silly, some are entertaining surprises, some have gone viral, and some are just plain sweet. So go ahead and lace up those dancing shoes, get out there and shake what you’ve got. If you can get grandma on the dance floor grooving to the latest hits you know you’ve inspired an atmosphere open to good times and good memories. “You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching, Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like there's nobody listening, And live like it's heaven on earth.” William W.

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment.
