While you may think that all the nerves and butterflies go out the window the moment you say “I do,” this isn’t the case for many brides and grooms out there. Right around the time that you choose your wedding DJ, you’ll probably feel a wave of panic over the fact that you will eventually have to dance in front of all your guests. The first dance is a time-honored tradition; there will be cameras flashing everywhere as every set of eyes in the room remains plastered on you. Gulp.
If you’re nervous about embarrassing yourself on the dance floor, don’t be! There are plenty of ways in which you can ensure that you and your new husband are truly the king and queen of the dance floor:
Choose the right song
The song that you choose for your first dance will likely be regarded as “your song” forever; you want to make sure that it’s one that you love and that truly represents your relationship. If you’re so focused on the lyrics of the song and how they make you feel about the person in your arms, you probably won’t even think about how nervous you are or who’s watching you.
Enlist the help of a dance instructor
If you really can’t get over your two left feet, consider a bit of help from a professional. This doesn’t have to be a scene out of Dirty Dancing, but learning some different footwork could do wonderful for your confidence. Plus, think about how good it would feel to shock your loved ones with your amazing moves?
Practice as much as you can
Once you have your song, practice in the comfort and privacy of your own home whenever you have a spare moment. This is a great way to familiarize yourself with the rhythm and to grow more comfortable with the idea of moving with the music.
The best advice we can give you on how to command the dance floor is to remember that everyone at your wedding loves you. Chances are high that if you invited them to your wedding, they know you pretty well – which means they probably know all about your dance moves and love you in spite of them! Just have fun and enjoy the moment; the rest will come!
