Recommended Posts

thinks that our first dance song should be cut to two minutes...the song is only 3:18...did any of you shorten your FD song...I think it's a ridiculous request...

WHAT?! No way! I wouldnt do it. Is the choreographer suggesting that so they do not have to make a longer routine? What song are you using if you dont mind me asking? To me the first dance in its entirety is important so I would not shorten it. Its not like it is 6 minutes long.

TWO MINUTES huh.gif Is there any part of the choreogrpahy that can be repeated to fill that remaining 1:18? I don't think 3:18 is too long for a choreographed dance. I would be curiousto hear form previous brides who have worked with a choreogrpaher before...

Ok its your wedding so you should do whatever you want and whatever is going to make you happy.

 

That being said I'm going to be honest only b/c you asked for opinions. I think 3:18 is too long. I'm not a choreographer but I used to choreograph dances for dance schools and shows. It is a lot, trust me. If you guys are excellent dancers and think you can remember three minutes worth of music, then hey go for it. But just keep in mind that its longer than you think once your actually dancing to it. Another thing your choreographer maybe thinking about is your guests. Sometimes it can seem really long for a guest to watch the couple dance for over three minutes.

 

But ultimately its your wedding and you guys should do whatever is going to make you happy. So if you want your full song, I say go for it! cheer2.gif

our dance instructor told us the following:

"we recommend the first dance last between 2.5 – 3 minutes". ours is the merging of a traditional song for 2 minutes and then salsa type song for a minute...so about 3 minutes.

No, I don't mind at all...we are dancing to Fever by Peggy Lee...the choreographer felt the 3 minutes was too long to watch a couple dance...isn't 3 minutes the norm for most songs??

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
