The Bridal Dance

Customs and Etiquettes To Follow During the Wedding Dance 

One of the most cherished traditions of a wedding is the bridal dance.  The wedding dance is surely one of the most enjoyed parts of the wedding reception. Guests can enjoy the music to their heart’s desire. Lovely music is playing in the background and the newlyweds are now entertaining their visitors and guests with a choreographed dance. This will be an amazing time to take some images, which capture the spirit of the wedding event. Dancing at the wedding includes some etiquette. The order of dancing can be organised by the bride and groom with the help of the venue co-ordinator.

Arrangement of Dance Partners in the Wedding Day

Typically, the bride and groom will dance first. This is the standard format. Then the parent dances along with the couple – father together with the bride and the mother with the groom. The father of the groom will also dance with the bride and the groom with his mother-in-law. The concept of this dance is that the bride and groom are welcome to their new families. If the bride or groom has stepparents, then it’s proper to request stepparents to dance together with the couple as well.

After dancing with the newlywed, the parents then pair with each other. Then, they pair with the other parents as well. The order continues with the best man dancing with the bride and the maid of honor with the groom. Users and bridesmaid follow next until the whole wedding entourage has danced.

Other Wedding Dance Options

This is normally the conventional arrangement of wedding dancing. Nowadays, it’s not usual for couples; however, to do some difference on this pairing order. Oftentimes, if the parents are divorced, this type of arrangement might cause awkwardness on the part of the parents. This is the main reason why in the majority of weddings these days, the traditional dance of the newlywed is extremely observed. After that, there’s no special arrangement to be followed.

It’s famous today to select fun dance songs for the couple’s first dance. If a cool, fun dance suits your personal and the theme of the wedding, then making light of the dance could be a memorable experience. Nevertheless, ensure that you both agree on the tone and theme of the song because you wish it to make you smile each time you hear it.

Although this part of the wedding ceremony and reception is crucial for bride and groom, ensure that you can enjoy and relax the moment. By the time the bridal dance comes around, the most anxious parts of the wedding are totally over.

The bridal dance must be your chance to bond and exhale with your family and your spouse. Hence, though you truly love the song and the dance to be a memorable and significant part of the special day, ensure that you balance the wedding dance plans in a manner, which will not add extra stress to your event. In fact, the bridal dance must be relaxed to allow all of that go and have a great and amazing time together.
