Wedding Journal takes a look at the best first dance clips we’ve seen recently, from the bride and groom putting on a show, to the bridal party getting involved.

It’s been revealed that Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan performed a surprise choreographed dance at their May wedding reception and we wouldn’t expect anything less from a former Strictly Come Dancing winner! The couple are said to have danced the iconic scene from the hit movie Dirty Dancing which was so emotional to everyone involved that even the Groom shed a tear!

Lots of brides stay away from a choreographed first dance for fear of being embarrassed but the great thing about weddings is; you’re among friends! Choreographed first dance routines inject a sense of fun, get everyone in the party spirit and you can guarantee your guests will remember it forever!

If we haven’t already convinced you, most brides choose to change into a whole new outfit in order to shimmy around the dance floor, and what bride can resist the call of two wedding dresses?

Take a look at five of the best first dance videos we could find!
