One of these is the bride and groom dance. Here are some of our dance instructor-approved tips to make your first dance really stand out.
Be different when it comes to your song choice

Practice, Practice and Practice!

With some instruction, you’ll feel confident and composed Most importantly, you’ll be able to focus on enjoying the moment.
Dance in your heels

Make sure you are comfortable enough shaking your groove thing on the dance floor when you are in heels because practicing in flats than transitioning to heels is quite the change! If you don't have your bridal shoes yet, just make sure to practice in the same heel length you have in mind for your reception.
Above anything else, this is your special dance and you want to have fun doing it! Don't stress too much and just breathe. Yes, this is a Big Day and your first dance is the stuff of memories. However, take the time to enjoy the moment and each other.
