5 Ways to Survive Your Wedding First Dance

You have a venue, a date, maybe you’ve even hired a band, and now you’re anxious about the dance, especially the first dance! The first dance is a wedding tradition every guest looks forward to; it’s emotional, romantic, and beautiful. So, here are tips to get you through this epic moment of your life!



  • Choose a Song

Your first dance is really about the two of you and your wedding. So, it’s a good idea to choose a romantic song that both of you would love to dance to.

Some couples hire professional musicians to create a custom song for their first dance. If that’s not within your budget, you can work with your band to personalize a first dance song.


  • The Shorter, The Better

The first dance doesn’t need to be too long to make it perfect. For this reason, we recommend you choose a song no longer than 3 minutes. If your preferred song is longer than that, you can have it edited.


  • Consider the Outfit

Make sure the clothing you’re wearing is easy to dance in. Some particular styles like long trains can be restrictive and may not allow you to move properly on the dance floor.

It’s also a good idea to try on your shoes the day before the wedding so you can see how you’ll do on the dance floor.


  • Include Your Guests

The first dance tradition keeps evolving. Some couples now use their family members, friends, and loved ones in their first dance!


  • Take Basic Dance Lessons

This may come as a surprise, but it’s something worth considering. Taking a dance lesson with your partner may teach you a thing or two about what to expect on the dance floor. If paying for dance lessons seems too much, you can consider practicing together before the big day.
