Must Be the Music: Best First Dances

Over the past couple of years we’ve seen a rise in unique and extravagant internet proposals. From flash mobs to shopping centre performances, in the 21st Century it seems that the bigger you go for your wedding, the better.

In our previous blog we spoke about the typical dancing we see on a daily wedding basis, the Cha-Cha Slide, the Macarena, the robot… In recent years, it seems, the wedding world has combined these fabulous dance moves with a performance you’ll never forget. Ladies and gentlemen, we present you with modern day traditions.


A Twist to your First Dance

At a wedding it’s tradition for the bride and groom to open the dance floor with their first husband and wife dance. With your couple’s song playing a lulling, romantic tune in the background, traditional ballroom dancing is how the bride and groom are expected to start of the reception celebrations.

Except recently, this opening dance has transformed itself into an energetic, comic and completely original first dance. Showing off their individual moves the bride and groom, opening the floor to laughter and showing off their individual personalities.


A New Father and Daughter Dance?

Even the father and daughter dance, the traditional passage signifying the father passing his little girl on to her new life with her husband has taken a modern twist as of lately. The key in all of this? To show the world there’s more to their personalities than traditional slow dancing.

We have to say, this is a pretty cool twist.


Show Off Your Skills with Your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen!

Every now and then you’ll attend a wedding where the bridesmaids and groomsmen decide they’re going to send off their beloved hen and stag in the best way they can, with an amazing dance for the other half (and all of the guests to laugh at).

So while the bridesmaids take to the stage with their combination of the latest pop songs to imitate, the groomsmen take to the floor to show off their dance skills.

Whether you decide to spend your first dances in the traditional fashion, with elegant ballroom dancing and a soft backing tune, or whether you decide to show off your skills to a collaboration of pop and rock songs, you’re going to want to perfect lighting for the job.
