The dance of the bride with her father and the dance of the groom with her mother is a very soulful, touching part of theevening, which expresses the gratitude of children to their parents for life, upbringing and love, and is also a kind of farewell of young people with their parental family. The tradition of dancing with parents came to us from the West and undoubtedly became the decoration of the festive banquet. In this article Chanfashion will give you some tips on how to prepare yourself and prepare your parents for this beautiful and bright moment.
Try not to complicate
Do you understand that dancing with parents should not demonstrate the extraordinary choreographic abilities of the participants? Do not complicate the dance, on the contrary, the main emphasis is on sincerity, sincerity and touching.
Find time to rehearse
If you still decide to surprise your guests with a production dance, it’s time to think about a choreographer. A professional will be able to take into account all the nuances: the physical form of the parents, their willingness to learn new movements, the platform on which the dance will take place, and will select the most suitable option. Together you will bring your “pas” to perfection. On average, 4–5 rehearsals are needed, one of which should be done in the same shoes and outfit that will be similar to yourones. Remember: training is the key to the success of dancing at the holiday!
Chanfashion advises turning yourdance into a touching family production. In the middle of the dance, invite the father of the bride and the mother of the groom to the stage to express all your love and gratitude to your parents in dance movements. And we propose to complete this number with a symbolic connection — the bride and groom return to each other, and the bride’s father dances with the groom’s mother. Thus, you can demonstrate the connection of two families into a single whole!
Most often, newlyweds choose waltz, free dance or comic dance to dance with their parents.
Bride and father dance
Your dance with your dad may follow your firstdance with your fiance, but we advise you not to unleash so many emotions on yourself and those present at once. Start dancing with your parents for the second musical break at the banquet. Imagine how touchingly and effectively you can beat the beginning: the groom will bring you to your father and give him your hand.
If you feel like crying while dancing, don’t hold back your emotions and don’t think about makeup! Tears will only emphasize the depth of the moment!
Groom’s dance with mom
After the dance of the bride and father, it is the turn of the son-groom to invite his mother to the dance. Just imagine what pride and joy overwhelms the mother of your loved one. Now you will take care of her son. The groom at this exciting moment should be as gallant and attentive to his mother as possible, expressing all his love and gratitude in every movement and look.
Particular attention should be paid to the clothes of the mother of the groom: we advise you to avoid long trains and puffy sleeves. The dress should also not be too tight. To avoid embarrassing situations, do not forget to check this issue.
You should not choose very sad songs to dance with your parents — you don’t say goodbye forever and fly away to another planet. Let it be your parents favorite tune. Even better if it’s your overall favorite song.
To enhance the impression of the dance, you can use a slide show. Make a selection of the brightest, most unusual family photos and videos to accompany the dance number. And sparklers in the hands of spectators or an explosion of confetti will help to finish beautifully.
If the presence of a father is not possible, invite an uncle or grandfather, a teacher, a godfather to the dance — a person whom you respect and whose role in your life is very important.
After finishing the dance, give each parent memorable gifts: dad, for example, cufflinks or a bottle of expensive alcohol, and mom — a bouquet of beautiful flowers. So you once again express your gratitude to your parents.
