Still, I couldn’t help but feel a bit nervous right beforehand on our wedding day. What if, after all that hard work, we majorly messed it up? Would my heavy dress throw me off? Would we be too nervous and forget the steps? After all, we only got one shot at our first dance!
How did things turn out? Have a look!
As you can clearly see from the sheer joy on my face both throughout and upon finishing the routine, performing our dance to the resounding cheers of our guests was by far one of the proudest and most exhilarating moments of my entire life, let alone the wedding day. Although we may have gone off-beat once or twice, we made it back before the end, and I was beyond thrilled to nail some of the more difficult turns.
I’m so glad I had the confidence to give this a try, and even more importantly, that Stephen and I worked so well together as a team in bringing the routine to life!
LESSON LEARNED: If you have the budget and the desire, learning a routine for your first dance is a great way to surprise your guests, while also fostering communication and teamwork between you and your fiance. Our three dance sessions may have cost $60 per hour, but the experience we got out of them was ultimately priceless.
What are your plans for a first dance?
