One thing that we put as on every one of our sheets as an option for the wedding night is the bridal party dance. However, it’s one of the least used dances throughout the night. At times, the bridal party can be an unusual assortment of friends and family, but that doesn’t mean you can’t all dance together.
Many times when the bridal party dances to an upbeat song, Can’t Hold Us- Macklemore, I’ve Gotta Feeling- Black Eyed Peas, etc., this is the perfect segway into opening the dance floor to the rest of the wedding guests. In many cases, by the end of the song, the bridal party has already begun pulling their friends onto the dance floor. It’s a great way to start the dancing for the night.
In some cases, the bridal party dance has been a slow dance. This is also a good way to show them how much you appreciate them. There are a few things to remember though if you do this. If you choose to do a slow dance, have the entire party bring their date or significant other onto the dance floor for this song. Just remember that some people may not always have a date or pairing up some bridal party members may be awkward.
In short, the bridal party can be a great tribute to your friends. Having an upbeat song as your bridal party dance is one of the best ways to get people excited and to help start off the dancing on the right foot. It can get everyone involved and show your closest friends how much they truly mean to you.
