Dirty Dancing UK - Julia and James First Dance

I may be jumping ahead a bit, but I can't resist. Maybe it's the holiday season, maybe it's the end of the semester. Maybe it's the little jig my dog does after she pees. Either way, I find myself lately with the urge to dance. For those that don't know me, the mere mention of the possibility of me dancing is enough to envoke laughter. Oddly enough, I seem to remember a time when I used to be quite graceful - I may have even won awards for my dancing skills. This, of course, was before I turned 13, at which point my "long limbs" turned into 6'0" of gangly awkwardness. Yes, puberty is a magical time...
But I digress. The point is that this new energy, this sudden need to shake what my momma gave me, has got me thinking about the best part of any wedding - the dancing. More specifically, that special moment that is the first dance. We've all seen it before: the hushed audience, the spotlight, the bride and groom rocking back and forth while turing in a circle. Now don't get me wrong, I am a huge proponent of the first dance. So much so that I have been keeping my ears open to possible "first dance songs" since I was 15 years old. Having said this, I know how bored I get watching these events take place. I know I'm not the only one. So the question is this - is there a way to share this time with your guests without boring them out of their skulls?
Although your wedding day is all about you, it's also a time to give back to those who traveled to see you, who bought you gifts, and who have supported you with their love and well wishes. It's not a time to bore them with Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing." Throw a little bit of modern style into this classic tradition. Don't be afraid to make it your own, it's a great opportunity to step (or dance!) outside the box. Take a cue from Julia and James, and give your guests something to remember. After all, you will never forget your first dance as husband and wife - why should they?
