There’s a scene in “The Wedding Planner” where the engaged couple notices they don’t have a song that is “theirs” to dance to. So the fiancée puts on a CD with popular wedding tracks in the car and they choose the first one on the album. NOT the ideal way to choose a song! Have you ever noticed that most of the weddings you’ve been to use a lot of the same tunes? Don’t choose the first “romantic” song that comes to mind. MIX. IT. UP.
Here’s a secret: the song doesn’t have to be slow and sappy. Find something that you both enjoy and that defines your tastes. “Ain’t No Other Man” by Christina Aguilera would be much more unique and entertaining than another dance to “At Last” by Etta James.
Of course, if you’re looking for something more upbeat and wild, you’ll need some choreography. Many of the Panache & Promises brides go to CONVERGENCE Dance and Body Center for lessons. Make your first dance a performance and wow your friends and family!
The California couple below did just that. The husband is a magician so they chose “I Put a Spell on You” by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and incorporated some tricks into their dance. Very sexy, very unique!
Whether you have an idea in mind or you’re feeling totally clueless, professional dance instructors can help you find the right moves that will make your first dance fabulous.
