We’ve already waxed lyrical about the first dance fear, but it’s safe to state you’ll never hear a soon-to-be-wed couple utter the following: “We can’t wait for our first dance, we’ve got bags of confidence when it comes to slow dancing with hundreds of eyeballs staring at us.” Jumping up and down at your favourite club, sliding about in wellies at festivals or two-stepping on the beach on holiday is the closest 99% of us come to dancing, so it’s natural to feel nervous.
One thing we hear from couples after the big day, however, is that it’s always alright on the night. The exhilaration and excitement of the day, fuelled by a few glasses of fizz, often means strutting to the dancefloor like a Strictly contestant. You’ll realise it will not destine you to divorce if the groom steps on your hem, or be a red neck if you twirl round while soppily singing the words to John Legend to each other. Don’t believe us? Just look at these 25 couples who are having the best time ever during their first dance.
