The first dance at your wedding can be nerve wracking. This isn't just you and your partner dancing in the living room, all eyes, and cameras, will be on you two. Feel the pressure yet? Here are a few tips to make that first dance, the best dance.
Choose a Song that's You
There are millions of songs out in the world, floating around just waiting to be used in your wedding. It is easy to be overwhelmed. And trust me when you sit down to make a list of all the songs you love, the names will magically leave your brain. Start with a Google search to jolt your memory and narrow it down from there. But focus on the songs you think really mean a lot to you and your partner. Maybe you already have a song, or maybe your song is something silly that speaks to both of you but you want something different for your wedding. No matter which way you decide to go with the type of song, just make sure it fits both of you.
Practice in Your Shoes (and your dress!)
Practice makes perfect, but practicing in flats when you will be wearing heels can be problematic. Get used to the way the shoes feel as you move and dance, and most importantly break them in! The last thing you want on your honeymoon is the "new shoes blues" on your feet. If you can, and feel brave enough, practice in your dress too. It will help you adjust to moving in it and the weight of it if it has a large train. Just be careful!
Don't Let the Spotlight Scare You
Your wedding day is all about you and your partner, and you will be in the spotlight the entire time. Don't let it stop you from having the best day. Remember, you are surrounded by the people that love you the most, so even if you mess up, no one will care. Besides, when you and your partner are having your first dance, you will be so focused on them everyone else will fade away for a few beautiful minutes. Enjoy them, and bask in the love you two share. Don't worry about anyone else!
