Helpful Tips to consider while planning and designing your first dance.

This is just a list of tips and suggestions that just might make your journey a bit easier. Remember, we are here to help you make all the choices and decisions. All you got to do is reach out!

  • Select a wedding dance song that makes you want to dance, with an easy to hear dance beat.

  • Select a wedding dance song that is less than three minutes long or have your D.J. fade it out at a specified time.

  • Start practicing at least three months before your wedding day. With all that will be going on, you won’t have as much time to practice as the wedding day nears.

  • Find out how large or small your wedding dance floor is going to be so you can practice your wedding dance accordingly.

  • Decide ahead of time how and where you will be entering the dance floor for your wedding dance.

  • Brides should practice in a long dress similar to their wedding dress or the slip to their wedding dress. You don’t want to end up stepping all over it during your first dance.

  • Grooms should practice in their tuxedo jacket or a similar jacket. See how well you can lift your arms and also practice keeping your shoulders down and relaxed so you don’t end up with your shoulder pads in your ears.

  • Practice in your wedding dance shoes at least a few times before the big day. Women can cover their shoes with socks or a low tack tape to prevent scuffing. Men should put Vaseline on the inside edges of their shoes if they are patent leather. Otherwise, they will stick when you dance and you might trip.

  • Listen to your wedding dance music as much as you can, even while driving.

  • Most of all, remember to relax, smile and have a good time! It is all about having a fun experience for your and your partner.

  • Remember, we are always here to help you make all the decisions and choices to make your learning process most enjoyable!
