Each couple creates their own dynamic. Perhaps one partner is more outgoing than the other, which is quite common. If you balance your partner out, and they happen to be more shy than you are, getting them on the dance floor may seem impossible. After your first dance as a newlywed couple, it may be more difficult for them to join you on the dance floor.
Surely you will have great music and a welcoming environment on the dance floor, but what else can you do to convince your partner to dance with you?
Here at Arthur Murray Dance Studio, we know just how important dancing is to celebrating your nuptials. That’s why we have put together a few tips for you to get your groom to dance on your big day. If you are planning your wedding day, be sure to keep reading to discover more:
- A trade, if you will. Although it can be quite irritating in certain situations, there is always the saying, “if you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.” If your partner has been dying to head out to a concert with his friends, attend the next big game, or have an all-day fishing trip, this is the perfect ammo to use! You can present your partner with a trade, if you will. If he dances with you for a certain amount of times, you will give the green light for his fishing expedition, or other event. Now, each of you will be happy and get something you want.
- Show them up. Perhaps your partner has a competitive streak deep within. What better way to get them on the dance floor than to make them want to one-up another man? Whether your partner wants to show-up one of his friends on the wedding dance floor or gain bragging rights about how he took dancing classes with you to make you happy, and man is he getting good at it, your fiancé will love outdoing his friends when it comes to pleasing his partner.
- The puppy dog eyes. If all else fails, don’t be afraid to whip out those puppy dog eyes of yours, there is no shame. Even if you aren’t one to flash the puppy dog eyes whenever you want something, they are still a weapon of choice when it comes to your last resort. Surely you will not abuse this power, but remember, your wedding day only happens once. If you want your partner to dance with you on this very special day, yet they are holding strong with that “strong will” that you love, yet hate, it’s time. Look them right in the eyes, widen your own, pout your lip slightly, but don’t overdo it, and plead with your eyes. In the end, you will share wonderful dances and create memories you both will treasure.
