Happy Monday friends! It’s been a minute since we had a post dedicated to wedding planning tips…so here is our very first one of the new year! I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal when it comes to planning your wedding in the big scheme of things, but your first dance should be a big deal. It really is one of the most memorable moments of your big day. I mean….this is when you and your babe dance for the very first time as husband and wife! Here are a few simple tips to ensure everything runs smoothly:
1) In my opinion, the most important step when planning your first dance is to choose a song that reflects your relationship as a couple. I know every year there is usually one go-to song that couples choose but try and pick something that really means something to you. Trendy songs come and go so choose this one wisely. Pick something that will stand the test of time and speak to all generations. Don’t worry if other people react negatively to it. Everyone will have an opinion about something and weddings sometimes tend to bring the crazy out of everyone. Just go with what you guys want and everyone will put aside their feelings on the big day. I promise!
2) Remember to take your dress and shoes into consideration. If you’re planning on doing some kind of big, choreographed number you want to make sure there’s no tripping on that long train or wearing shoes that are uncomfortable. Aint nobody got time for that.
3) Practice a little before the big day. Even if you’re planning on a simple slow dance…you want to make sure you and your babe familiarize yourselves with the beat and movement of the song. There’s nothing worse than leaving it to the wedding day and not being on the same page!
4) Have fun at the end of it! Bring it out the rest of your guests and include them in this special moment.
