You really should get married more often. You know, for practice.
Once you're engaged, everyone you've ever met who has been married wants to offer their advice, and ask wedding planning questions they expect you to have the answers to.
"How many people?"
"Will the palette be built around a particular color scheme, season, or era?"
It can feel like being enrolled in an event planning class, but only showing up for the final exam. No, we don't encourage you to marry 6 or 7 times just to perfect the art of wedding planning. Fortunately, in the wedding dance department, we've been a part of a thousand or two.
Learn to Dance, Rock Your Wedding
We are going to cover three distinct types of approaches to your Wedding Dance to help take this one area in your list of plans, and simplify it.
1. Winging It - Ready to Rock whatever you did in High School
Many bad wedding dances on YouTube probably began months before with the phrase, "We'll be fine" or "we already know how to dance" or "once you get out there, have I got a surprise for you."
You could kick your new spouse in the face by accident.
2. Choreographing It - Ready to Rock your First Dance
This is a very popular option. To think that you were just a dozen dance lessons away from Winging It is a huge upgrade, and your wedding guests, and your future selves will thank you for making that decision.
You may be asked to dance again. In fact, you may want to dance again, but if you place all of your dance lesson focus on one number, then you may just have to hit Repeat on your first dance later in the reception. For more on this, check out 6 Critical Wedding Dance Facts
3. Dancing It - Ready to Rock your Wedding... and More
OK, big shocker, we saved the best for last, but learning how to dance, is different than winging it, or choreographing a dance. It's developing the skill of dancing, and then a first dance, second dance, or any dance in the future is no longer a stressful ordeal. This doesn't require a desire to perform on TV, or to have started lessons at birth either.
Whether your wedding planning window is 3 months, or 3 years, this is a viable option for anyone. It all starts with a wedding consultation to begin the strategy, and setting up your appointments.
You will be invited to more weddings, your social calendar will fill up, and you'll spend more time making eye contact with the love of your life.
Learning to dance is a stress reliever. Yes, even if you're learning to dance for your wedding. Your lessons are more like dates, than "planning appointments". With a little time, and some courage to take the first step, you can be dancing for your wedding, rocking it, and any dance floor after that.
