    The Five Other Special Wedding Dances You Also Need To Consider

    The First Dance of a married couple has always been a popular tradition in wedding celebrations. There are a plethora of popular First Dance wedding songs to choose from. Whether it be at the beginning of the reception or after dinner, it’s a way for the newlyweds to have their grand entrance that goes straight to the dance floor and for their guests to join them in celebrating.

     

    However, there are 5 more special dances that you should look into to make your wedding reception extra special!

    1. Father Daughter Dance

    Father Daughter DanceThis is a tradition from our friends across the pond in America. It’s a beautifully sentimental moment which displays public thanks for the first man in a Bride’s life and for all he’s done. It’s a dance which is becoming more and more common at UK weddings… and there’s normally not a dry eye in the house!


    2. Mother Son Dance

    mother son danceJust like the previous dance, it’s another tradition from the USA and it’s normally placed just after the Father Daughter Dance. Dads tend to do the ceremonial side of things, like the toasts and walking the daughter down the isle… this gives a fantastic moment for Mother and Son to share a special moment of their own.


    3. Last Dance

    Last DanceThis is a great opportunity to bring the whole of your wedding party together for one last time and say goodnight and thank you. Normally an slightly slower anthemic song, you’ll be sounded by your friends and family, singing at the top of their voices. It’s a great moment for all generations. This is also a fantastic time to bring back any grandparents onto the dance floor (who might not be jumping up and down all night), in what is essentially a big group hug.


    4. Friends Dance

    Friends DanceWhat’s that one song from when you and your friends were at school would always get you on the dance floor? Maybe the big hit from your school or university days? Why not ask your band to play it and recreate that moment. We often get asked to this and make sure all the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen are involved… All this helps to build an electric atmosphere you’ll remember for ever!


    5. Dance Off

    Dance offThis is a light humoured and highly memorable competition, normally between the guys and girls. It’s a great way of introducing a little bit of friendly rivalry and sheer unadulterated fun into your party. We warn you it can become quite a contest… make sure your photographer is there to catch some incredible photos! If you’re slightly more reserved you can always nominate some friends!

      Adam & Amy’s Wedding, December 2014
      Louise Blouin Foundation, London

      Gill: We had every aspect of the performance exactly how we wanted it. The music was soft enough for people to talk, but some people would dance during dinner, after dinner… The music was fantastic. It was a real party atmosphere, everyone was dancing. A great feeling about the evening… the guests had an amazing time, the family had a wonderful time, and more importantly the bride and bridegroom were over the moon with everything.

      Andy: It was the first time I’ve worked with you guys. I actually came to site and you were actually doing the full production of someone’s wedding. And it was just from the start to the end, how you dealt with it, your client, and the actual wedding itself and how… you were very caring about it and were making sure everything was on key. And it was one of those ones where you just thought, “It’s a no-brainer. Those guys definitely have to be at my wedding.”

      PP022 | Nick Ingram | Lifting The Curtain On Bespoke Music For The Events Industry

      Hello and welcome to a brand new year with us here on Planner’s Pod! We have lots of new and exciting things in store for all of you and we do hope you stay with us as we unveil them.

      In this episode, we decided to start things up by having Metropolis’ very own Nick Ingram, our Creative Director, for the first time here on the show. Many of you have been curious and have asked us about how we do things in the company. So, what better way to open this up for discussion than having a team member on board.

      Here we discuss the ins and outs of how to manage a live-band company, what sort of sticky situations we all get into and how we try to deal with those, as well as how to engage with clients and knowing them on a personal level to give them a unique and wonderful musical experience during their event.
