Step 1: Pick your song Pick your wedding song. Choose something meaningful, but make sure it has a clear, steady beat and isn't too slow. Between two and three minutes is a good length. Your song selection will likely determine your dance style. Tip The fox-trot is a relatively easy dance to learn and goes with many standards. Step 2: Choose a style No special song? Look for inspiration based on the style of dance you want. Formal ballroom? Sassy Latin? Upbeat swing? A sexy tango? Then find a song to match. Step 3: Take lessons Take a few lessons. Learning a simple routine takes about four sessions. Bring a recording of your song and wear the shoes you'll be wearing at the reception. Tip If you're talented, consider choreographing your own routine. Step 4: Know the dance floor size Take the size and shape of the dance floor into consideration. Make sure your routine is neither too sweeping nor too insular. Step 5: Add some extras Learn one or two dips, turns, or spins so the photographer has something lively to capture. Step 6: Practice Whatever you decide to do, spend some time rehearsing it. When the big day comes, you'll be glad you did. Did You Know? "Amazed" by Lonestar was voted the most popular first dance wedding song in a 2009 U.K. poll.
