Choreographed first dances and aisle marches
You may remember a few years ago when the Jill and Kevin’s Wedding Entrance Dance went viral. There are many things that make this video special, including the bridesmaids’ funky style, the audience’s enjoyment, and the obviously fantastic attitude of the participants. All of these factors made the dance memorable not just for those who were there but for people who “met the couple” through the video online. This makes a choreographed dance one of the you can have.
Having a choreographed wedding dance can be a great way to add your own personality and style into your special day and make it memorable for both you and your guests. There are many other fun choreographed wedding dances filmed by family and friends and placed on YouTube, from the waltz down the aisle to the first tango between the newlyweds.
