Dancing at your Wedding

Not all of us are the most natural dancers in the world, but most of us have probably thought about that first dance moment. We love the moment when the venue lights dim and a hush spreads round the room as the music starts. 

You don’t have to put on a strictly-worthy show stopper – unless you want to! Some wedding venues can accommodate a big reveal moment, which works really well if you’re planning on an outfit change too for your evening party. Or, if you’re more shy, go for a classic song that will quickly encourage other guests to join you on the dancefloor. Whatever you do, you don’t want to your first dance to be something you dread so much that you can’t relax and enjoy your day. Why not hire a dance instructor to make you feel more at ease? You never know, you could be the next undiscovered Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers!
