Most couples getting married incorporate dancing in the reception plans. This is an excellent opportunity for the newly married couple to have a first dance and for all the guests to kick up their heels in celebration of the marriage. Along with planning, the dancing aspect of any wedding come lots of question. Below you will find answers to some of the most often asked questions to help get you started to a great reception.

How do I go about choosing the perfect song for that first dance?

Many times, this special song will be one that the couple shared while dating. If you do not have a favorite song, you should work together to think of the type of song that brings up the type of emotions that the two of you shared while dating, becoming engaged, and planning for your future. You want a song that means something from the past, the present, and will hold a special place in the future.

How do I choose songs that are easy to dance to?

You want your guests to get on the dance floor to enjoy dancing rather than sitting around wishing you had chosen different music. Start by deciding the tempo you want and then choose the songs based on that tempo. Remember that you can mix tempos to spice things up.

Some of the more traditional yet very fun dances include the Foxtrot, Waltz, and Rumba. If you have concerns about people knowing how to dance to this type of music, hire several instructors to be at the reception that can actually give lessons. The same would be true for teaching Country and Western line dancing or Salsa!

What makes a good type of song for the first dance?

Two perfect styles are the Foxtrot and Waltz, which are traditional styles that lend a romantic and classy sound and tempo. One suggestion is for the bride and groom, to take some private time together to take lessons. After you have chosen which style of music you want, about six weeks from your wedding date, hire an instructor to guide you through the steps. This way, when you get on the dance floor, you can wow your friends and family, creating a magical moment on the dance floor.

How long should the first dance last?

In most cases, you should anticipate the first dance to last about five minutes. Keep in mind that time from two to twenty minutes is perfect fine. To accomplish the longer dance, you can have a special selection of songs created on a CD so they flow perfectly from one to another.

What is the appropriate order of dances?

Deciding on the order is something that most couples dread. Instead of stressing over this, simply follow the guideline below:
  • Bride and Groom always dance together first
  • Brides father (or the person who gave the Bride away at the wedding) dances with the Bride next
  • Groom dances with his natural mother next followed by a step-mom, if applicable
  • Parents now dance together on the dance floor at the same time
  • Best Man dances with the Brides mom
  • Maid of Honor dances with the Grooms dad
