Weddings in all of their various forms, are as old as time. Although they have changed in rituals and traditions, the core value of uniting two individuals in love has not and will not ever change. There are hundreds of options that a couple must consider when planning a wedding. Will the couple organize their wedding around customs and traditions? Will they dig deep into their culture and pull out some oldies but goldies such as the hand fasting ritual or will they ride the wave of the hottest and newest wedding trends to arrive?
Traditions worldwide and dating as far back as the 17th Century have the newly married couple taking centre stage for the first dance. The first dance was originally a custom held by wealthy families hosting balls in which the guest of honour or hosts opened up the dance floor for all. This once upon a time social norm began first dance tradition at weddings and has held strong since. The first dance is an extremely personal moment for the couple, and could ultimately be the ONLY personal moment the couple get all evening as they are generally busy entertaining their guests throughout the day.
