Bride and Groom Dancing

Dancing is a moving expression of life and the opportunities for the bride and groom to perform to a personal romantic dance or entertain their guests is becoming more popular or expected. The choice of dance styles and music selections are endless. The bride and groom can create more fun and dazzle at their wedding creating memories for themselves and their guests.

The wedded couple may choose their cultural tradition or become creative and design an original choreography to be danced with each other or to their guests as entertainment. The choreography may be restricted to the bride and groom or may include the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Many days and possibly weeks of dance lessons and rehearsals will be required.

The choreography may start with a slow rhythm, medium fast, and then faster. The songs selected may tell a personal story of the couple through a varied collection of their favorite songs. The entertainment portion may be sweet, funny, sensual, sexy, demonstrate athletic abilities, or other dance skills and talents of the couple. Support dancers from the wedding party or hired professionals may compliment their performance.

Every culture which features the first dance performed by the bride and groom have traditional rules of dance. When attending another culture’s wedding it is best to observe and not participate unless asked to do so. Occasionally it may be necessary to familiarize your self with their etiquette to avoid any social embarrassments.

Regardless of the culture the first dance is usually a romantic slow paced music. The bride and groom may dance in their wedding attire or choose to change clothing for easier dancing.

Some couples discover that they like dancing and may continue to participate in this activity as a hobby interest. This similar interest will add a fun outlet to their married lifestyle.

Dancing As A Hobby

How did the tradition of the first dance evolve into weddings?

During past centuries when kings and queens ruled it was their tradition to open the ball with a dance.

After the king and queen danced then the guests were admitted to the dance floor. Ballroom dancing was quite common in those centuries.

In today’s society some couples will take ballroom instruction to learn the customary waltz for their wedding. After taking lessons some people discover that dance is a hobby which they can share together.

Dancing offers a lifestyle of fun activities, a physical exercise activity, encourages mental discipline, music appreciation, socializing, festivities, and travel opportunities.

  1. Couples who do wonderful or spectacular dance performances at their weddings are those personalities who share in a dance hobby. YouTube has some excellent videos.
  2. Other couples who consider hiring a professional for instructions just for this occasion will learn more about each other as they learn and practice their steps alone and together. It takes effort, time, patience, and time to learn how to dance together. After their performance they may decide to continue this activity as a hobby.
  3. If only one of you likes dancing as a hobby; do a solo. The groom can take it upon himself to perform for his new bride or vice versa. This is a pleasant surprise for the receiver.
  4. Do the traditional first dance and let the hired professional performers entertain the reception guests.

Perform Wedding Ceremonies

A new trend in today’s weddings is to marry outside of traditional religious indoctrination.

Would you like to perform wedding ceremonies? This is the most beautiful and rewarding of all interests. There are legal requirements which must be met before performing these ceremonies. Visit your local county clerks office in your state. Each state has its requirements in order for the marriage to be legally recognized by the government.
