A marriage couple dance is normally arranged during the reception. This dance is not compulsory. It can be your choice to include or exclude this dance in your wedding. The decision will depend on your partner’s taste and preferences. However, most weddings do incorporate this dance as the couple leave the reception table and walk towards the aisle together.

Nowadays, many couples like to arrange their own marriage couple dance. There are lots of ideas that can help you create your own dance. One of them is to hire a DJ or music group to perform a song during the reception. If you want to do it on your own, you can use a recorder and make some notes down so you can remember the songs. However, if you want to be a team then it would be better if you hire a DJ or music group.

Types of Steps 

There are different steps that you can do to arrange your own dance. For example, you can send email to your partner or ask him/her to tell you the things that they would want. You can also make a list of the things that you would want to include in your wedding. By doing so, you can be guided in arranging your own couple dance.

Before you go on with the marriage couple dance, it is important that you plan everything ahead of time. You need to think of the dance venue where you will hold it, the number of people that you would invite to your party and the partners. It would also be helpful if you ask your partner for their suggestions or comments. They can really give you some useful information regarding your upcoming event.


To start with, you need to make an agreement with your partner about the date and time of your marriage couple dance. It is important that you both agree on this. Also, you both should agree on the type of music that you want to play. If you cannot settle these topics among yourselves, it would be better if you will hire a DJ or music group to perform on your wedding day. A good DJ or band will be very beneficial since he/she will know exactly what to do and will create an ideal marriage couple dance.

The next thing that you should do before holding the marriage couple dance is to choose the song that you will be performing. You can go to a music store and ask for the availability of that particular song. If you are unable to find it, you can simply check online and search for the latest songs that have been in trend recently. It would also be helpful if you check the hit songs that have been downloaded by many people from different sources.


Finally, you need to decide on the attire of your marriage couple dance. Since most wedding couples are going to wear formal gowns, it may be nice to consider a simple and elegant wedding dress. It is also important that you and your spouse will both agree on the outfit. Do not let your personality be compromised just for the sake of having a nice marriage couple dance.
