Of all the wedding day rituals, one of the most cherished after saying, "I do", is the first dance as a married couple. This is a special moment where the bride and groom can get lost in each other without giving much thought to the people around them. For this reason, the wedding dance should be something you take extra time in organizing. You want this event to be extra special. Therefore, it would be a good idea for the two of you to practice once you have chosen the song you will have played for your first dance. Although there is no reason to be nervous, you should keep in mind that everyone would be watching you. You want the dance to be elegant and graceful.

The first thing you need to do is determine the song that will be played. Consider the type of music that will allow you to dance in a way in which you are comfortable. This is probably not the time to try to re-enact Ginger Rogers and Fred Astair. The classic dance would be a waltz or even a nice foxtrot. If you want to have a second dance, a swing dance or Tango would be wonderful, and entertaining. Just remember that some dance styles are easier to learn that others are.

Next, will the song be played by a live band, or DJ? This decision is something that will influence the exact song you choose. Some of the more popular choices that you cannot go wrong with include, "It had to be you", "Time after Time", and "Our Love is here to Stay." Work with the band or DJ to choose a song that has the right tempo and length. If you found a song on one of your personal CD's, be sure to make a copy for the band or DJ so they have the same version of what you have been practicing. Keep in mind that one song can be played in a multitude of ways, depending on the artists. Be sure that everyone is working with the same song by the same artist.

Some people are just not comfortable with dancing. In this case, you can take a few dance lessons that will perfect your first dance. Remember, you are not performing for your guests, but it would be nice if the bride and groom were not tripping over each other. Lessons are easy to find and reasonably priced, especially if you are only learning how to dance to the one song. You never know, after one lesson, the two of you may have discovered a new interest and something you can expand on after the wedding.

The bandleader or DJ will call the bride and groom to the dance floor, and announce "the first dance." Traditionally, the bride's father cuts in about two-thirds of the way through the dance. At this point, the groom walks over to his mother and asks her to dance. The first dance is a beautiful memory and something you will cherish forever.
