Blog - Announcing the first dance

Posted: Sunday 11th September 2016 By: Andrew Broughton | Read Time = 1 mins Views: 3137

As a DJ I fully expect to make announcements, including the bride and grooms first dance. But it doesn't necessarily have to be me making all the introductions.

And I dont mind making announcements, I am confident on the microphone and more than used to doing this.

First dance at Solton Manor

However, I ask each bride and groom to consider if there is someone else that they would like to announce their first dance.

Obviously I dont take any offence if they choose someone else; I always suggest it might be a nice touch for a family member or friend to deliver a more personalised introduction to such an important part of any wedding.

Now this doesnt have to be another best mans speech and Im sure most guests would prefer it to be short and sweat at this stage of the evening.

The main thing is to make sure that everyone, including the bride & groom, is ready for the first dance. Once Ive got the thumbs up from the bride & groom, I invite them onto the dancefloor and their guests to form a circle around. Then its simply a case of inviting a round of applause and start the first dance.
