The first dance. Potentially one of the most daunting things, second to the speeches and choosing a wedding dress and committing yourself to another for the rest of your life…

OK, a lot of things about weddings are daunting. First dances should really be pretty easy – a shuffle across the dancefloor, a smooch and you’re done!

However, in the age of YouTube and viral videos, some people have gone way overboard to ensure their first dance is one to remember – and one that yours must stand up to!

Additionally, a lot of couples are taking dance lessons to make sure their first dance is probably the best they’ve danced in their lives!

Here are a selection of our favourite viral wedding first dances…
