First Dance Nerves? 4 Ways to Wow Your Wedding Guests

Even if your wedding is a while off yet, we’re willing to bet that both you and your partner are already dreading your first dance. Although it is supposed to be a magical moment between you both on your wedding day, it can often be the one aspect of the day that most couples dread.

However, with a little forward thinking and preparation, you can make your first dance one of the most enjoyable parts – and we’re here to tell you how!

Create a Custom Song

Choosing a song that you both enjoy and want to use as your background music for the dance can be something that a lot of couples can’t agree on – after all, not everyone will have the same musical tastes as their partners.

Instead of trawling through those overplayed songs that appear at every wedding first dance, why not be creative and have a custom song written especially for your big day? There are plenty of bands and songwriters out there who would love to give their experience to a newly-wed couple!

Create a song that actually means something to you both –from the lyrics to the style of music! Your guests won’t expect it, and you’ll have a song that perfectly encapsulates your relationship!

Plan a Flash Mob With Your Bridal Party

Tradition may try to dictate that the first dance is just between the couple who have got married, but if you really want to wow your guests, why not break tradition and opt for something more quirky and unique instead?

Flash mobs are a great way to spruce up a first dance, especially if you get the rest of your bridal party involved too! Rope in your best man, bridesmaids and ushers and put on a perfectly choreographed routine that will shock the rest of your guests and give everyone a wonderful memory of the day!

You never know, it may even encourage more people to get on that dancefloor and join you, too!

Does It Have to Be A Dance?

If the thought of pulling your partner close and swaying gently to music is making you feel uncomfortable, who says you have to make it a dance?

There’s plenty of people who have thought outside the box and come up with some super creative ideas to do instead of a dance, including a lightsaber battle between bride and groom, a magic duel which wouldn’t look out of place in Hogwarts, or even a well choreographed “fight” where your significant other has to fight their way to you through the bridal party!

It just adds an element of fun and it keeps your guests’ attention firmly on you while keeping them entertained at the same time!
