The first dance is undoubtedly one of the most important, and memorable parts at any wedding. This is why I like to offer every couple two options of making their way to the dance floor.
Option #1) Invited to first dance while being seated. The lovely couple would be seated at their table and are called to dance their first dance as husband and wife. Once announce they push their seats back, stand up and make their way to the middle of the dance floor.
Option #2) Invited to first dance while standing up. Here the lovely couple would stand in front of their table and would walk towards the dance floor once invited.
Both ideas work well, but it is something to think about for every couple. Will you be seated at a table on a riser or stage with stairs? Do you get nervous when all eyes are on you and have to do multiple moves just to get to the dance floor? If so, then I suggest to be invited while standing up.
