3 Reasons to Have a First Dance at Your Wedding
The first dance at weddings is a time-honored tradition. Weddings as well as other important social events typically have a dance performed by the guests of honor. It’s an opening dance, or in regards to weddings, a first dance. While it’s only February, June, the traditional month for weddings, is not far away. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about your first dance. What are your expectations? Let’s talk about why you or your friends and family should have a first dance at your special event.
Why You Should Have a First Dance
1. It’s Your Time to Shine
YOUR WEDDING… YOUR DAY! It’s a totally unique, one-of-a-kind moment. This may be the only time that ALL of your friends and family will come together at the same time and celebrate you and your partner. If there’s ever a moment when you are in the spotlight, it’s at your wedding. So make it the best it can be!
All of your guests are there to see YOU and your partner start the rest of your lives as a married couple. All your favorite people are waiting to see the traditional first dance. Give them what they came for.

2. It Makes the BEST Memory
You’ll make lots of wonderful memories throughout your wedding day. Let the first dance be one of the best memories of all. The first dance is usually one of the highlights—perhaps THE highlight—of this truly unique day. Plus, everyone will be videoing. So investing some time and effort in making this a true highlight is more than called for.
You’ll look back for years to come at the photos and videos of your first dance. Remembering the way you felt dancing together for the very first time after saying “I do.”
3. Your First Dance is FOREVER!
The church hosts you for a day and then it’s back to business. The bar is open for an evening and then it’s back to life as usual. The meal is a one-time thing. The dress will go in a closet and not see light again for years, if ever. The rented tux or tails will return to the tailor. Everything fades but the memory…
Except for your DANCE. The steps that you learn for your wedding dance are steps that you can do again and again. If it’s a special routine, you can do it at each anniversary, with or without an audience. What an amazing tradition! And if the dance includes steps from a popular or traditional social dance like Rumba, Waltz, Swing, Salsa, or any of a dozen other popular styles, then you’ll have dance steps in common that you can use at ANY social gathering, or a night out on the town.
Of all the things you invest in for your wedding, the first dance is the only one that truly is an “investment.” It’s an investment that will reap returns in fun, health, and intimacy for years to come. Think of it as marriage insurance. How much is that kind of policy worth?
