Make Your First Dance A Dance To Remember

The first dance is one of those parts of your wedding that many guests look forward to, for many years the most traditional first dances are simply the happy couple taking to the floor and dancing around to a song that means something to them.

Whilst many modern couples stick to this format, there are some that want to bring the first dance into a modern world.

Which is why you will often see viral videos online which show couples doing their best to change things up.

If you are not sure how best to spice up your first dance, then we have put together some of the best ideas on ways to make sure that your first dance is one to remember.

Plan in a costume change

There are lots of brides who choose to change their dress for the evening celebrations.

Not only does this mean that they get double the dress, but they will often pick something a little more comfortable too.

Why not work your costume change into your first dance?

You can make things a little different by perhaps having special t-shirts or jumpers made, which will definitely make sure that everyone knows that the party has arrived.

Have a song written for you

Now, this idea might sound a little far-fetched, but it isn’t quite as out of reach as you may think.

Of course, Ed Sheeran isn’t going to be free to create you a hit single, but you might find a local band/songwriter are more than happy to pen you a tune.

They might even come and perform it live if you ask them nicely enough.

Mix tape time

Sometimes it can be hard to think of just one song that you want as your first dance.

So, rather than having to cut down on songs that you love, why not bring them all together.

Create yourself a first dance mix tape?

Cut down all of the songs that you want to be your first dance and bring them together into one longer track.

That way you get to dance to everything that you love.

Rope some helpers in

One of the most popular ways to change up the first dance is to rope in some of your bridal party to help you out.

This can take some organising, particularly if you want to put together a fully-fledged routine, however it is entirely worth it.

Not only will it impress on the night, but if you then upload it online, you might gain yourself some fans.

Your first dance is something that you will remember for years to come, so, why not make sure that it goes down in history by mixing things up?
