Planning checklist

Prepare for success by getting started now.
6 months ahead: Decide on songs
  • Choose your wedding song. This is the first song you will dance to as a married couple.
  • Figure out how many styles of dance you want to learn.
5–6 months ahead: Start your search
  • Look for an instructor. Search online for schools or teachers that feature a lot of rave reviews from other newlyweds.
  • Check out potential instructors’ bios. Once you've found a school or teacher, ask to see information about the instructor.
  • Look for a person with experience in wedding dances or the particular style you are interested in.
  • Choose the class size that makes you comfortable. One-on-one sessions let you ask lots of questions and gain personalized instruction.
  • Find someone in tune with your pace. If you feel like you are getting bored, choose a more advanced class.
4 months ahead: Start learning and set goals
  • Get your fiancé(e) involved. From the very beginning, go to classes together.
  • Set reasonable goals. Do not expect to be crowned the international champion of swing if you’ve never done it before.
  • Try to make enough progress to look great on camera for your wedding or even learn some choreography.
3 months ahead: Assess your progress
  • Do not be afraid to switch instructors. If you are getting frustrated look for someone else who motivates you better.
1 month ahead: Practice and deliver
  • At this point, you and your fiancé(e) should be well-versed in the dance(s). Continue to practice every day.
  • Deliver your final song choices to your DJ or venue.
The night before: Pack
  • If you both have particular pairs of shoes you plan to wear, keep them in a safe place, preferably with your ceremony outfits.
The day of: Confirm
  • When you arrive at your reception, confirm the starting time with your DJ or MC so you're ready to boogie on time.
