Unforgettable wedding moments: 6 reasons why a special wedding dance is a must!

Updated: Jun 5, 2023

A wedding isn't only a formal event; it's a fun party celebrating love and unity. Each part of it is filled with feelings, from saying your vows to slicing the cake.

But there's one special tradition that you won’t want to miss, no matter how formal or relaxed your wedding is … and that’s the wedding dance!

This age-old custom is more than a required step. It's a wonderful way for you to express yourselves, and show your personalities, and the dance symbolises two people becoming one.

It's definitely something you need on your wedding day, and this article share's why!

1. It's the ultimate party starter

When the newly married couple starts to dance, they officially kick off the “party part” of the event. The first dance is usually an emotional and happy moment that invites guests to start having fun.

Whether you choose to slowly sway to your favourite song, or perform a stylishly romantic or fun & funky choreographed routine, your wedding dance can infuse your party with energy, stir up excitement, and give your guests the WOW factor … and we all want to make sure our wedding day is unforgettable for not just the couple, but also the guests.

2. It's a symbolic tradition

The wedding dance is full of tradition and meaning. It symbolises the couple's first steps in their new life together, reflecting their journey of love and teamwork.

This meaningful act shows a lot about the bond you have, your respect for each other, and your readiness to lead and follow in different life situations. In a way, it's a silent promise that echoes the vows made earlier.
