Freshen Up Dance Moves for Wedding Reception


As wedding season rolls around, instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios can help couples create memories on the dance floor by preparing for their wedding reception.

The average couple spends six hours per week planning their wedding. In between picking out flowers, making seating charts, and planning the menu, it is important for couples to plan their first dance.

Many people look forward to hitting the dance floor with their spouses. For these extroverts, taking center stage and dancing is a natural way to showcase their love and happiness. If your idea of a good time includes cozying up on the sofa with a good book, dancing in front of a crowd may be daunting.

Check out how these couples got the party started at their wedding reception.

This couple from Santa Cruz, California, surprised guests by busting a move to a remix of the classic Elvis Presley song, “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

In this high-energy video, the newlyweds got the crowd involved as they danced to “From Now On,” a popular tune from the musical “The Greatest Showman.

Newlyweds aren’t the only people who have fun dancing at the reception. Take a look at the dance performed by a new husband and many of the male wedding guests.

At least 29% of all weddings are forecast to take place in the summer months this year, according to The Knot, an online wedding planning tool. Longer days and warmer temperatures make summer an ideal time to get married. Couples have the option of holding a ceremony outdoors, and favorable temperatures allow brides to have more dress options. Summertime provides a wide variety of flowers to choose from and more farm-to-table food options.
