There is nothing better than a surprise choreographed dance at a wedding. Most times it is the bride & groom, sometimes a bride & father, or the groom & mother. This dance includes a medley of hits by Beyonce, Destiny’s Child, The Backstreet Boys, along with a Persian number performed by the groom and his groomsmen. Sean Rajaee is the groom who pulled this number off for his lucky bride Ariana.


These are always fun to see and are usually entertaining. This group really had it together as some of the groomsmen who flew in had to learn it via YouTube and last minute instruction before the wedding. A terrific job done by all and the crowd went wild!

With many of today’s couples posting and sharing everything about planning their wedding, social media use has skyrocketed over the past few years. SAP, a global Information Technology leader, has a social media application that was used to gather the info for this Infographic on the use of social media when planning a wedding.

SAP listened to what brides and grooms were saying and posting online between January 2013 and June 2013. The results were broken down into categories below.

To Have, To Hold, and To Post – Saying “I Do” in Socail Media

A trend that has been popular over the last few years is the “Surprise” First Dance. This is when the bride and groom begin by dancing to a slow song and then the music switches to a fast song and they begin a choreographed routine. Some are very intricate in their choreography while others are freestyle with the couple just having fun.

Even though the trend has slowed a little, there are still some great choreographed First Dance performances out there. There is no reason why a couple can’t do whatever they want… something silly, funny, awkward.

What really makes it special is when the song that they dance to has some sort of meaning as well. For instance, Raquel Kelly, E! Fashion Police Producer & Creator of the Wedding Blog “I Guess I Do”, recently wrote an article on HuffPost Weddings about her own “Surprise” First Dance and the meaning behind it. Not only does she do a fantastic job of explaining it’s meaning, she has the awesome routine with her husband on video to go along with it.

So, I think that if a bride and groom want to do a “Surprise” First Dance, then go for it. Don’t worry about if it’s not the hottest trend right now or what others may think. Just go out, have fun, and make a memory that you and your spouse will remember for the rest of your lives!
