Planning a wedding can be very stressful and a lot of work. This is a big event for the bride and groom, and you want everything to be perfect! When it comes to the dance portion of the evening, it can be easy to get nervous. Not everyone is a good dancer or feels prepared for this part of the reception. To put your mind at ease, here are some ground rules for the wedding dance!
1. Pick a great playlist/DJ
Whether you decide to create your own playlist with personal and fun songs or hire an awesome DJ, your wedding reception is sure to be a grand celebration. When choosing your first dance song, you and the bride should pick a song that you both like and feel represents your relationship.
2. Practice, practice, practice!
They say practice makes perfect, and for your wedding reception, it is a must. By getting plenty of practice, you can help relieve your nerves on the wedding day, giving you confidence in your dancing abilities. This will allow you to let loose and have some fun!
3. Make sure your shoes are comfortable
Nobody wants to dance for hours in an uncomfortable pair of shoes, so avoid this disaster by picking out a comfortable pair. If you are attending dance lessons or practices beforehand, make sure you wear your wedding shoes so you are used to the way they feel by the wedding day!
4. Be cautious of the bride's dress
To avoid a complete catastrophe, make sure you are attentive to your bride's wedding dress. If she has a long train or bust, it can get a little tricky, but by being extra careful to dodge it, you should do just fine.
5. Get creative
Have a good time during your reception by being creative! Why not bring all your groomsmen together for a fun-filled, coordinated dance number? It will be an amazing surprise for the bride and your guests. Plus, an even greater bonding experience for the groomsmen and you!
6. Remember, mistakes are okay!
Don't forget that this is a time of celebration. It's okay to make mistakes! Nobody is perfect, and your guests will just be ready to celebrate with you. Enjoy the moment you are in and relish in it with your bride. This is your day!
With these ground rules, you are sure to have a grand time celebrating with family and friends. Just relax and have fun!
