Originating from the Italian Renaissance, and embraced the world over, Ballet is the most graceful form of dance in our opinion, and truly iconic. Ballet was in fact designed as a celebration of love, and pioneered to gesticulate the emotions felt between lovers during their wedding day. This began with the noblemen and women and aristocracy in Italy, but soon spread throughout Europe, developing presence in theatrics and becoming well beloved by all who saw it.
One way to really give your big day a ballet feel, you could hire a ballet dance troupe, or better still, for those lucky enough to have such talent, perhaps a ballet incorporated first dance to complete the finishing touches in an absolutely classic way. To attain the skills required to carry this romantic gesture out, it may be worth attending a few introductory classes to gain familiarity with the "5 Basic Positions".
The very essence of ballet style very much assigns the role of lovers and therefore, whether the dance is ballet or not, the imagery is very befitting of a couple deeply in love and celebrating their joining in matrimony.
