With great food, refreshing drinks, and great music, you can keep your guests happy and lively at your wedding reception. Of course, when it comes to making the most of the evening, many will be excited to use your dance floor area. Before they do, all eyes will be on you and your partner as you prepare to have your first dance as a married couple. The choices you make as a couple concerning your first dance are rooted in your relationship. The “right song” is the one that feels true to your relationship – no one can have more insight into that choice than you and your partner! The first dance lets everyone glimpse what makes your love so special. Of course, there are a few suggestions to help things go smoothly, so you can make the most of your moment.

Changing Shoes Mid-Wedding

The perfect shoes for your ceremony may be less than ideal for your time on the dance floor, or even walking among your guests during the reception. Many brides will change shoes mid-wedding to avoid this issue. If you go with this plan, check the height of your reception shoes – a drop in height can leave your gown dragging across the floor.

Controlling Your Nerves

If you or your partner feel nervous about dancing together, take the time to practice. A trip to a bar with a dance floor can also help you loosen up. Your first dance does not need to be perfect, but you should avoid letting your nervousness show.

Opening Up The Dance Floor To Your Guests

The right song can have a big effect on your guests. When it is time for everyone to show off their moves, think about what song might attract the most guests possible. Something modern can be fun, but a dance classic can attract younger and older guests.
