We have had an increased number of couples these days interested in ideas for their special First Dance. This dance at the reception is traditionally a must at Wedding Receptions around the world – and now gaining popularity in India. The couple usually practices with a choreographer for weeks or months before the reception to perfect their show stopping performance.
Most couples choose to do a traditional waltz, although some may opt for a foxtrot or even salsa if they are adventurous enough! A popular trend for a while which we had many couples opt for, was a waltz to a slow tempo song and then a sudden shift into a pumping Bollywood song of their choice. This ensures a fun element in the dance and also gets all the guests to join in. It also helps kickstart the party! One important point for brides to keep in mind – is the style of your dress. Remember that you are usually in comfortable clothes and shoes when you practice, so on the day, your gown and heels shouldn’t hamper your performance. A good idea is to do a dress rehearsal prior to the day!
