'Brother sister dance' emerging as new wedding trend
'Brother sister dance' has become a new wedding trend with more and more couples adding it to their reception schedules, it has been revealed.
In most cases the Brother/Sister dance is used in lieu of a Father/Daughter dance when the father is deceased or not involved in the wedding, the Huffington Post revealed.
But Becca Kaufman of BKO Orchestra in Chicago warns that the dance can become awkward for guests if the right song is not used to match the emotion between brother and sister.
"Instead of going for the same emotions as a traditional Father/Daughter dance, I recommend choosing an upbeat, fun song for the siblings and inviting everyone to join in," she said.
DJ Nate Long agrees that the key to making the dance successful (and not creepy) is careful song selection.
"You want to find a song that represents close ties, but not intimate ones," said Long.
Among Long's suggestions are James Taylor's "You've Got a Friend" and Queen's "You're My Best Friend."
