Are you nervous about your first dance? Don’t be. I have a little secret to share today… and by the end of this feature you’ll realise it’s really no secret at all but simple common sense. So many couples agonise over the first dance! Let’s face it: unless you’re happy on a podium in a club you won’t be comfortable strutting your stuff in the middle of a circle of everyone you know… it’s a pretty unusual situation to be in, right?

But forget all that. There are ways to get over first dance nerves:
- Pretend you’ve forgotten all about it until the big day, try and get out of it if no one remembers, or brief your band or DJ that it just isn’t going to happen!
- Sign up for dance classes and learn a spectacular routine to amaze and delight your guests!
- Think of it this way: everyone is there to celebrate your marriage and the fact that you’re head over heels in love with your other half. Your first dance is your chance to hug, and have a secret conversation, and just feel amazing listening to “your song” together (while you move your feet a little bit).

Your first dance? It’s just being in love, with music, in a circle. Easy.
I can prove it too: the lovely guys at 20Collective have shared some incredible first dance photos with us this morning. Look closely and you’ll see every one of these beautiful images is all about the LOVE! Whether you see a deliriously happy couple surrounded by family, or an intimate moment between a bride and groom, these images are proof that the first dance is an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime romantic moment. So don’t be nervous… just be in love.
