A wedding dance

Groom's dance: with whom and what to dance at the wedding?

Mar­riage is one of the mile­stones in our life jour­ney, and it is nat­ur­al to want to make it unfor­get­table. There are so many fun things to do with a wed­ding. Choose out­fits, hair­styles, make-up and man­i­cures, dec­o­rate the hall, think over the menu… the list is end­less. In this arti­cle, it is worth talk­ing about the wed­ding dances of the groom — with whom, in what sequence, to what music it is desir­able for the young spouse to dance.

With the bride

This dance shows the depth of feel­ings that new­ly­weds have for each oth­er. Usu­al­ly it is a slow waltz to beau­ti­ful music, often the back­ground song has a spe­cial mean­ing for two lovers. It is advis­able to rehearse it in advance, because this is a kind of “high­light of the pro­gram” of the entire wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion. It is ide­al to invite a spe­cial­ist chore­o­g­ra­ph­er to stage the dance of the bride and groom. He will reveal the strengths and weak­ness­es of the part­ners, will assist in choos­ing the right musi­cal com­po­si­tion, will learn with you the dance moves that will make it ele­gant and grace­ful.

If you do not want to invite a pro­fes­sion­al chore­o­g­ra­ph­er, rehearsals are still nec­es­sary. You can do this at home or in the restau­rant where the ban­quet will take place. If you spend a few rehearsals in wed­ding shoes and an out­fit that looks like a for­mal attire, it will only ben­e­fit you. It is best to start prepar­ing a month and a half before the wed­ding, espe­cial­ly if both of you have not been danc­ing before. There are a great many options for the dance of the new­ly­weds, here are the clas­sic waltz, and pas­sion­ate tan­go, and incen­di­ary Latin dances, and rock and roll, and ori­en­tal melodies.

When choos­ing a style of wed­ding dance, it is worth con­sid­er­ing the fol­low­ing nuances:

  • your desires;
  • the tem­pera­ment of both spous­es;
  • phys­i­cal train­ing;
  • dance expe­ri­ence (or lack there­of);
  • prepa­ra­tion time;
  • cel­e­bra­tion style;
  • a hall for a wed­ding ban­quet;
  • out­fits and shoes cho­sen for the wed­ding.

When stag­ing a dance, sev­er­al impor­tant points should be tak­en into account.

  • The room where the cer­e­mo­ny will take place. It is worth not­ing that the size of the dance floor direct­ly affects the move­ments in the dance. Small space lim­its the choice of dance steps, as well as the height of the ceil­ings in the ban­quet hall.
  • Floor. The mate­r­i­al with which the floor of the room is paved also mat­ters. So, the tiled floor seri­ous­ly lim­its the free­dom of move­ment. In this sit­u­a­tion, flat shoes are com­fort­able, which are not suit­able for all gen­res of music. It is good to dance slow waltzes on a mar­ble floor, but the heel must be sta­ble and with a wide base, oth­er­wise (espe­cial­ly in the case of high studs with met­al heels) there is a high risk of slip­ping. The par­quet is almost per­fect, but there is a draw­back — it can creak. And also there is a high prob­a­bil­i­ty of part­ners lag­ging behind due to unim­por­tant slip.
  • Shoes. For a wed­ding dance num­ber, it’s best to stock up on a spare pair of com­fort­able shoes.
  • Guests. It is nec­es­sary to take into account the scheme of seat­ing guests in the hall.
  • Shoot­ing a cel­e­bra­tion. Do not for­get about the oper­a­tors cap­tur­ing this event. Try to get them to shoot the dance num­ber from the most impres­sive angle.
  • dura­tion. Often the dance of the bride and groom lasts 2–3 min­utes.
  • Bride’s wed­ding dress. The dress should not hin­der the bride’s move­ments.

With mom

Next in impor­tance are the dances of young spous­es with their par­ents.

The waltz of the groom with his moth­er is a touch­ing and emo­tion­al spec­ta­cle, because before the wed­ding, it was the moth­er who was the most impor­tant woman in the life of a young hus­band. It is on the day of her son’s mar­riage that she pass­es him into the gen­tle hands of his wife.

The son in this dance must express how much he cher­ish­es and loves his moth­er. Often a lyri­cal dance is cho­sen for this, but no one for­bids a dash­ing, cheer­ful dance. The back­ground can be a slide show of chil­dren’s pho­tos.

With mother-in-law

A tra­di­tion is also the dance of a fresh­ly baked hus­band with his moth­er-in-law. It should be fun­ny and play­ful. A young son-in-law shows how he will respect and love his sec­ond moth­er in the future. Humor­ous sketch­es also do not hurt. As a musi­cal com­po­si­tion, a cheer­ful song about the moth­er-in-law is usu­al­ly select­ed.

Gift for the bride from the groom with friends

Nowa­days, there is a fash­ion among young spous­es to give each oth­er songs and dances. Often a gift from the groom is per­formed with a group of friends. Such a mas­sive gift will touch the hearts of every­one at the wed­ding.

Do not for­get that this dance is a gift from a hus­band to his charm­ing wife, and it is he who should attract spe­cial atten­tion.

This dance num­ber can be staged in sev­er­al sce­nar­ios.

  • Clas­si­cal dance in the same style. Guys choose a genre to their lik­ing. Usu­al­ly they pre­fer an incen­di­ary dance — rock and roll, Cau­casian tunes and oth­ers, where they show their strength, ener­gy and mas­culin­i­ty. If you rehearse well in advance, you will get a bright pearl of a gala evening.

  • Sur­prise dance. Friends of the young spouse begin a dance among the ban­quet, to which the new­ly-made hus­band also joins. Such a gift will touch the hearts of both those invit­ed and the charm­ing young wife.

Impor­tant! It is worth prepar­ing well for this num­ber. The help of a pro­fes­sion­al chore­o­g­ra­ph­er will not hurt here either.
