First dance (video) tutorial

Wedding Style & Decor

If you've been a guest at a wedding in the past few years you've probably noticed that the bride and groom's first dance have moved well beyond the traditional hug each other and sway to the music. Couples are hiring dance instructors to teach them new moves so their first dance really gets the party started.

We've seen newlyweds try to trick their guests - make it seem like a classic sway dance and then turn it into a wildly choreographed number - and we've even seen brides and their dads turn the father-daughter dance into something that rocked more than rocks.
