#1 Dance too long

Your family and friends love you but even they don't want to see you dance for 10 minutes. Try to keep your first wedding dance between 2-3 minute. We find that that's the sweet spot for most people where you still keep your guests excited and finish on a high. Even for professional dancers it's hard to keep the attention while performing for more than 2 minutes. If the song you've chosen is too long you can always ask the DJ to fade away the music if you are not using a pre-cut version.

#2 Getting too tipsy and forgetting everything

We get it, it's nerve racking and you want to take a shot or two before your dance performance. It might sounds like a good idea but keep in mind that alcohol will influence your balance and memory and it can decrease the quality of your first wedding dance and even make it dangerous if you are doing intricate lifts or dips.

Keep in mind that you've chosen a song that is special for both of you and to the rest of your life you will remember every time you hear it on the radio. Your first wedding dance also sets up the tone for your future together since it's one of the first things you will do as newly married couple so you don't want to ruin the moment.
