A few years back, wedding (ballroom) dance lessons were a must for the perfect first dance. Wedding dance lessons are often overlooked as a part of wedding planning. But in reality, choosing to learn wedding dance choreography before your big day can help you feel confident and relaxed on your big day. Some couples are so eager to dance with their partner after they get married that they end up giving their first dance lessons to their partner. That’s not something that should be done in a public place. This is the time for your wedding dance lessons.
Even with the popularity of shows like Dancing with the Stars and ballroom dancing centered movies (my favorite is and will always be oldie-but-fabulous Strictly Ballroom), it seems the idea of dance lessons is on the way out the door.
Couples are trimming their budgets and extras like dance lessons are the first to go. Not to mention, some couples just don’t care what their First Dance dancing looks like. I’m always in favor of the couple doing what feels most comfortable for them. However, I do highly recommend that you use some kind of padding in your dancing shoes. If you plan to dance in heels then always add some metatarsal pads to your shoes.
Also, want to surprise your fiancé? Then you’ll love these dance lessons. Learn how to dance at your own wedding.
What are your thoughts on wedding dance lessons? Are they still a plus or just an added expense? We want to hear what you think! Share some love and leave a comment.
I think that dancing lessons would be a good way to learn to do something together… but at the same time I completely understand the need to trim costs. I do think that something kind of planned out would be nice… I am also pretty partial to dancing and lessons in general so I would probably want to do them. =D
I think that the dance lessens are typically an added expense. The only time I would say they would be recommended is if your wedding is a big “to-do” meaning that people will expect to see a formal dance.
Other than that, it is your wedding- dance how you want!
@Morgan – They WOULD be a great way to learn something together! Good point.
@Janet – I also have to agree with your statement, “It is your wedding – dance how you want!”
Thanks for the comments ladies!

I think dance lessons are a good idea if you don’t know how to dance. I took a few before and was glad I did.
