First Dance: A Guide to a Timeless Tradition
Without question, one of the most beautiful and anticipated moments of any wedding reception is the bride and groom's first dance. If done properly it can convey the love, commitment, and partnership of the couple, as well as display their physical coordination and compatibility on the dance floor. The moment is one that frequently draws tears from guests and creates an unforgettable wedding memory for the happy couple.
The tradition of the first dance goes back to at least the 17th century when formal balls were a common social affair. The festivities began only after the guests of honor had performed the first dance, basking in the glow of well-wishers and their attentions. The etiquette of the first dance has evolved into the lovely wedding tradition we expect today, but since the study of dance itself is not as prevalent as it once was many couples hold one another and sway rather than taking time to make the most of their moment.
