wedding steel bandThe epitome of romance and love, your first dance at your wedding reception is meaningful for you and your guests. Being the center of attention may be slightly intimidating to some, but the happy memories that you make will be cherished for a lifetime. From traditional waltzes to tantalising tangos, this old fashioned ritual has been transformed into something that is both heartwarming and fun.

Meaningful Moments

The lights are lowered and the guests surround the dance floor as you take the floor together for your first dance. The music starts and you glide together with the music, a symbol of how you two are now joined as one. While a significant moment for you both, your guests are also moved as they remember their own first dance. The quiet before the storm, these precious few moments may be the only ones you have together without interruption until after the reception is over. A momentous occasion for everyone involved, your first dance is just the beginning of your celebration and should be enjoyed and savored.

Traditional Tunes

Although traditionally danced as a waltz, the first dance has now expanded to a wide array of dance styles. There are a vast assortment of popular first dance songs that include selections like “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?”, “Endless Love,” “Unforgettable,” “Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You,” and “At Last.” Talk with your band or DJ about what selections you have to choose from. Choose a song that is meaningful for you both. Enjoy the moment and each other and your guests will delight in watching you dance together.

Shake Things Up

Have fun with your first dance. Some couples shake things up by starting out with a traditional slow dance that then changes to a quicker beat and faster dance, leaving guests laughing and applauding. If the waltz isn’t your style, select a dance that you both enjoy. Nearly any style of dance can be customized to fit your wedding. If you don’t know how to dance, you can find a dance studio near you and tell the instructor what you want to do. From a high-speed quick step to a sexy samba, they will design steps that will be tailored specifically to the style you want and the steps you can do. Then, when the time comes, just forget everything and enjoy the moment.

Dancing at your reception is a lovely way to bring an air of elegance and family togetherness to a wonderfully happy and joyous occasion.

Traditionally, the bride and groom will be the first to dance as their special song is played softly. Lights dimmed low create a romantic atmosphere.

As the music continues to play, the father of the bride will cut in on the groom and dance with his daughter. The groom asks the bride’s mother to join him in a dance and together they grace the dance floor.

The groom’s father then cuts in on the bride’s father and dances with the bride himself.  The bride’s father will then cut in on the groom and dance with his wife.

The groom will then ask his mother to dance.  Following this, the parents exchange dances with the other couple.

The best man then comes out to ask the bride to dance and the groom will dance with the maid or matron of honor.  Finally, the entire wedding party, ushers and bridesmaids join in the festivities.  Once the entire bridal party and their parents are on the dance floor, the other guests are invited to dance.

The “money dance” originated as a custom in Poland, and is a popular tradition found celebrated in the weddings of today.  It takes place sometime after the first dance and is usually announced by the DJ.  It is customary for the best man to begin dancing with the bride, pinning money onto her gown or putting it into a satin bag carried by the bride, especially for the money dance.  A newer rendition of this money dance includes bridesmaids and other ladies dancing with the groom, pinning money on his lapel.The Italian Villa steelband l
