Setting The Stage For Your First Dance

The first dance plays a large role in marriage culture around the world. While not everyone shares this custom, it is very common for the newly 
married couple to hit the dancefloor before anyone else, giving them a final chance to show off their love before the evening activities begin. 

While it may not be important to you for religious purposes, most people still want this part of their day to be perfect, and this will take 
some planning. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring the work which will have to go into setting the stage for your first dance.

Choosing A Song

The song you choose for this part of your wedding is arguably the most important part of it all. This needs to be something special to both you 
and your partner, while also being a song which makes it easy to dance. Examples like music your shared on an early date, songs which were 
played during special events, or even a track which was important to someone else in both of your lives all make a lot of sense. You don’t want 
to song you choose to be too fast, as this will be exhausting. Likewise, it shouldn’t be more than a couple of minutes long, or you could face 
having to dance for far longer than you would usually be happy to.

Finding A Musician

Once you have an idea of the song you’d like to have playing, you can begin the hunt for the perfect musicians to perform it for you. If you are 
on a tight budget, having a pre-recorded version isn’t too bad, but this won’t be as nice as hearing it live. There are loads of sites around the web 
which are designed to help you to find great wedding acts, with options ranging throughout loads of different genres. It’s always best to look 
for people who have played at a lot of events like this in the past, as this tends to make them more professional.

Planning The Logistics

Finally, as the last stage in all of this, it’s time to think about the logistical side of your first dance. Of course, you’ll need a dance floor, and this 
is something which can be rented. Alongside this, you’ll also want a stage, audio equipment, and loads of other components to make sure 
that everyone can enjoy the music being played. Affordable wedding suppliers can be found all over the web, with their services extending into 
loads of different fields. Getting all of the pieces for this from one place will always make it cheaper, while also lowering the risk that things 
won’t turn up, securing your day and ensuring that it goes as planned.

With all of this in mind, you should find it easy to plan this fundamental part of your big day. A lot of people struggle to plan this side of 
their wedding, finding it hard to put everything into place without spending a small fortune. In reality, though, this can be as cheap as you 
want it to be, especially if you’re willing to put in some effort.
