Did you ever wonder about the tradition of the first dance at weddings ? The tradition D8 not actually start with weddings, but the formal balls that were given by the aristocracy in France, Britain and Russia. The village of the first dance was generally given to the guest of honor, which and those times was the person in attendance that had the highest social position. This would mean from the head of the household unless members of the royal family were in attendance or their emissary.

Another occurrence of a first dance scenario, but when a young lady of social standing was first introduced to society and a gathering. T he old aristocracy held really fancy balls doing a certain time of the year, and when a young lady of a prominent family was old enough to attend her first ball, this was referred to as her "coming out season." While most commoners did not have such fancy balls they did, how ever used the occasion of a marriage to copy the ball format of the aristocrats. In America, these traditions came along with the emigrants.

The first dance of a newlywed couple servers the same purpose as the first dance and aristocratic ball. The guest of honor opens up the floor for dancing to their invited guests. The tradition involved from there to include a father/daughter dance, which mimics the idea of the father giving away the bride and the altar. The difference here is when the father gives away the bride at the altar. He's giving away his daughter to become a wife at the reception.
