Getting hitched this year? Congratulations! Whether you’re a bride-to-be planning your perfect day, or just an excited bridesmaid of your bff, you want to know the top wedding dance trends of 2019.
It’s your big day. The moment you’ve probably been thinking about for a long time. And it’s here—it’s the day you’re getting married. While some people like to keep nuptial celebrations low-key, others love the idea of crafting the perfect party that fits their relationship to a T. For some couples, that means wowing friends and family with a first wedding dance that exceeds all expectations.
The first dance at a wedding is one moment newlyweds have to embrace the spotlight and dazzle their guests. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a dancer, that doesn’t mean you can’t move to the beat with the best of them. In fact, you can easily craft a one-of-a-kind wedding dance with your partner-for-life if you sign up for wedding dance lessons at a local studio. (Click here to see New Jersey dance studios.)
No doubt you learned a few lessons from your first marriage. We bet you’re taking that wisdom into your new marriage. And hopefully you learned some things from your first wedding and are striving to do it differently the second time around to make your big day special and memorable.
Congratulations on your engagement! You’re likely in full planning mode—picking out flowers, cake tasting yummy treats, and choosing the right music for your special night. In all your planning, make sure dance lessons with your fiancé (don’t you love saying that?) are also on your wedding to-do list.

Congratulations! You're engaged! Now you have so many things to do and plan––it feels overwhelming! Right?!
Well, let's talk about it. All your life you've dreamed about the Big Day: your beautiful princess dress, Cinderella shoes, big ballroom, flowers, your family and friends, food, dancing, fun...
Where to start? Well, here's a handy checklist to get you moving!
Who says the bride and groom get to have all the fun at their wedding? As parents of the betrothed, you deserve to let your hair down and have fun too! You don’t need a few drinks before you feel courageous enough to hit the dance floor. All you need are some dance lessons from Arthur Murray New Jersey before the big day.
Wedding season is about to take over the social calendars of many, and if you’re smart, you’ll arrive prepared. How does one prepare for the slew of “I do’s”, you ask? Well, getting your dancing skills up to par is definitely the first order of business. You’d hate to look lost on the dance floor. Plus, if you’re single, how are you going to meet anyone by simply staring from the sidelines, swirling your iced-down drink around? That’s no way to enjoy yourself.
The first dance between a bride and groom is a long-standing tradition and a powerful exposition of the couple’s dedication, partnership and teamwork. Each first dance is as unique as the relationship itself.
There’s no better way to captivate your wedding guests than for you and your new spouse to wow them with your moves on the dance floor. We love it when brides and grooms showcase a choreographed routine they’ve learned for their first dance.
Picture this, you open your mailbox and you see something inside that you’re actually excited to open. No, it's not a bill, it's a wedding invitation! You open the envelope excited to see the beautiful invitation. A dear friend or family member wants you to be a part of their most special day.
You are immediately excited and think to yourself, “I know exactly what I will wear” and start imagining yourself in that beautiful new dress or suit. In a moment, however, that excitement turns into complete anxiety. Your mind begins to race: I can't dance! I will make a fool of myself! I can't follow or lead a dance partner on the dance floor! What music will they play? Will they laugh at me? I know, I'll just stay at my table or hang out at the bar all night.
