The ballroom erupts in applause. You see a few members of the crowd wiping tears out of the corners of their eyes. It’s time for your first dance as husband and wife. What song do you hear? What rhythm carries your footsteps along the dance floor? What words perfectly summarize your love for one another, and the commitment you’ve just sworn in front of all of your loved ones?

In fact, in 1922, etiquette expert Emily Post recommended that the couple wait to join in the dancing at their wedding after their gests had begun.
