I use particular lighting equipment for first dances which requires some set up. Definitely keep me posted if you choose to do a first dance with your spouse or parent so I have enough time to make you glow in the spotlight. If you do choose to do a series of first dances (i.e. involving the parents or wedding party), it works best to do these back to back. This way your guests can have the dance floor for the rest of the night without any interruptions, and you'll also have their fullest attention in the very beginning of the evening before too many drinks go down!
Assuming your DJ will bring their own lighting, consider asking them to turn off their colorful laser lights during your first dance. We’ll avoid those unnecessary dots on your beautiful faces!
