“a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;”
Ecclesiastes 3:4 ESV
The tradition of first dances at weddings is not that old. Perhaps as early as the 17th century, wealthy families had first dances at balls to celebrate the hosts or special guests. But weddings adopted the concept.
The first dance of a newly married couple shows the love and unity between them. The synchronization represents an important guideline for a good marriage. It gives the new couple an opportunity to express through body language the love chemistry with their graceful dance movements. The bride and groom come close to each other and the combination of the song and the dance steps of the couple speak for how they feel about each other. It strengthens their unity and they and their guests cherish the memories forever.
