Journey Back in Time: The Wedding Dance

Weddings are a perfect time for families to celebrate some of the most meaningful rituals and traditions passed down from generation to generation. One such tradition is the wedding dance. Even in modern times, dance plays an integral role in the wedding and serves as a homage to the bride and groom's own cultural heritage — and what better way to celebrate than with a folk dance, waltz or jitterbug, right?

Following are some clips of popular cultural wedding dances from all over the world:

The wedding waltz of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark - May 14, 2004

This UK bride and groom's first dance was inspired by the final dance scene in Dirty Dancing. And they even pulled off the lift!

Here's a traditional Italian dance at an Irish-Italian wedding

From Mexico -- The Chair Dance of Tierra Blanca

  1. The couple who did the Dirty Dancing routine were on Oprah a few years ago, and toward the end of their dance they were surprised when Patrick Swayze came on stage to finish the dance with them. Amazing!
  2. In Hungary, every invited guest can dance with the bride AFTER HAVING PAID!!! :-) (generally to a very traditional music a very traditional dance, called csárdás (every time, the partner changes, there is someone who calles: The bride is in sale!), finally the fresh husband steals the bride.) This is a way, to avoid gifts, if the young pair decides to let pay the guests with the bride.
    There are a lot of examples in youtube, check this :
