First Dance.....with a Twist!!!
After agreeing to spend the rest of your life with THE love of your life, you start the evening off gazing lovingly into each others eyes, slowly rocking to Etta James' At Last. Yes, nothing is as perfect as it is right now. But Suddenly, the music comes to a halt. Confusion ensues......Then, everyone starts hearing some old school blast from the past on the loudspeaker. NO, this is not a wedding disaster. This is all apart of your plan to entertain your guests and let loose, as you perform a high energy choreographed number or simply just wing it!
Does the above scenario sound familiar? It should. This is a growing trend at weddings all over the U.S. and it's all the rage!!! We've all seen the youtube videos of various couples' twist on the traditional First Dance. You've probably witnessed a few of these at weddings yourself. This is definitely not your mom's wedding (unless she was way before her time). Couples are veering from the typical 'hug and sway' and making their first dance uniquely their own. Sometimes they even include their wedding party. It's all about showing your personality, entertaining your guests, but most importantly just having fun with each other in the moment.
So, this sounds like something you want to incorporate in your upcoming wedding. But where do you even begin? You're no dancing aficionado. The only dance moves you've got are the robot and the cabbage patch. No Problem!! You have two options:
1. Just Wing It. This is your big day. It's all about you and your love having fun and enjoying yourselves. Your Wedding is a big party, so dance like you would at any other: be carefree. Who cares if you don't have the best moves. As long as you're enjoying yourselves, so will your guests.
2. Get a Dance Instructor. This is the route many have taken. Just go to the nearest dance studio and they'll choreograph a dance that represents you as a couple. So what are you waiting for? Go and contact a dance studio, in your area!
And as we sign off, we'll leave you with two videos that may give you some inspiration. And remember, Just Have Fun!!!!
