1. Traditionally many brides go for a slow romantic dance however the more fun dances even routines are becoming more popular. Decide on the mood you want for the first dance and go from there.
2. Pick a song you both like, not just any song that is easy to dance to. This song will be the one you remember so make it memorable.
3. Practice, Practice, Practice! Many couples forget or choose not to practice. Make sure you make time for practicing. if practing at home make sure you move everything out of the way, we don't want accidents, do we!.
4. Have dance lessons, this is the best way to give that dance the extra spcial touch to the reception. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes when going to lessions though. Try not to give away what your shows will look like to the Groom though.
5. Practice (said it again!) as much as you can in between dance lessions. It is a great way to exercise and will give that professional and polished touch to the dance.
6. Remember some wedding dresses are big and some are huge. Think about the size and the weight of the bridal gown when practising the dance.
7. Try not to tall anyone you are having lessons and practising. This will be a really nice surprise for your guests on the big day.
8. Do not drink too much before the first dance. The dance will end up evry messy and your work would have gone to waste.
9. Ensure your wedding dress is flexible enough to be bustled up. There would be nothing worse than your train getting caught and you falling over (and ripping your dress!)
10. Lastly, learning to dance can be fun. Take your time and be patient. After the wedding (and honeymoon!) you might even want to keep it up and it could be something you and your partner might enjoy doing together!
