Dancing on Your Wedding Day

Today we are going to talk about your bridal waltz.

Just the mention of the bridal waltz is enough to strike fear into the hearts of most men. Seriously, who dances together as a couple these days? When have you ever danced that way with your partner?

Chances are the answer – is that you never have, and it’s really nerve wracking to do in front of everyone you know.

If you’d like to follow tradition and do a bridal waltz and you’d like to show off to your family and friends, then go and have some lessons. Lessons are fun.

I’ve seen couples pretend to not be able to dance and after 15 seconds of shuffling around on the floor together, they break into this incredible tango that they’ve been learning.

If you want to provide a bit of shock value and fun, do something like that, but don’t tell a soul because people can’t keep secrets. Keep it to yourselves. Don’t even tell your parents or your bridal party. Just ‘wow’ everybody.

If you want to create a ‘show’ and have some fun for your guests, include the bridal party in the dance sequence if they are outgoing people. If they are not, there’s no need to make them feel uncomfortable.

If you are uneasy about doing a bridal waltz with just the two of you, don’t do it on your own. Do it with the bridal party if it gives you a safer feeling.

If you really don’t know how to dance, just hug each other, shuffle around on the floor, kiss, whisper sweet nothings into each other’s ear and forget there’s anyone else in the room. I call this the love shuffle. You’ll actually enjoy it.

If you choose not to bridal waltz, that is your decision – and don’t feel pressured into it by anyone.

The choice of song is really important because every time you hear that song for the rest of your life it’s going to bring back a beautiful memory for the two of you.

Whether you want to have lessons and do a flashy tango, or do some crazy dance, or just shuffle around together or not dance at all, it’s your day and it’s your choice.
