Enhance Your Wedding With Belly Dance:

There are so many different ways to integrate belly dance into your wedding and all the celebrations leading up to it. Here are a couple of Carrara’s favorite ideas to make your wedding magical!

  • Reception EntertainmentEntertain your guests with a full-length (20-30 minute) belly dance show to kick off the party and transition flawlessly from dinner to dancing. You know those boring, cookie-cutter weddings where nobody dances and everybody goes home early? With great entertainment, you won’t have to worry about that!

  • Cocktail Hour – Let’s face it – nobody ever knows what to do during that hour of down time between the ceremony and the reception. Make your cocktail hour a little less awkward and a lot more fabulous with a belly dance show! Your guests will enjoy plenty of photo ops and even learn a few new moves while they wait for you and your wedding party to make your grand entrance.
  • Zeffa The zeffa (also spelled zaffa) is an authentic Middle Eastern showstopper that never goes out of style! This is a traditional Arabic wedding procession where the belly dancer leads the newlyweds and their bridal party through the room and to their table, sometimes balancing a lit candelabra (shamadan) on her head to symbolically light the way for the couple. (A flameless LED option is available for wedding venues that prohibit fire). Carrara can also refer out a zaffa drummer if requested.
  • Wedding Ceremony – Did you know that you could have a belly dancer dance you down the aisle? While this option is far less common, one of Carrara’s all-time fondest wedding memories involved dancing the bride down the aisle to the couple’s favorite song.
  • Rehearsal Dinners & Engagement Parties – Who says you have to save all the fun for your wedding day? A belly dance performance is the perfect way to break the ice and get everyone in the mood for celebration at your rehearsal dinner or engagement party!

 

We loved Carrara Nour! Her performance at our wedding was beautiful and perfect in every way! I grew up in the Middle East so the music she was going to dance to was very important to me. Carrara worked with us from the day we met her to make sure the music selection, the colors, the show were all appropriate and to our liking! She is very professional and extremely prompt in her follow-up. She was even helpful with recommendations for other vendors we needed. I would recommend her services to any bride who is looking for a trustworthy vendor who will perform an amazing belly dancing show!

Entertainer for Weddings in OrlandoDid You Know…?

  • 72% of couples say they “wish they would have spent more time researching their reception entertainment.”
  • During wedding planning, couples say that their highest priority is their attire, followed by the reception site and the caterer. Reception entertainment is among the least of their priorities. Within one week after the reception, 78% of couples said they should have made entertainment their highest priority!
  • When asked, 81% of guests said that the one thing they remembered most about the wedding was the entertainment at the reception.
  • 93% of couples said they would have spent more of their budget on entertainment.
  • Not all belly dancers are equal! Any dancer can buy a couple of costumes, create a web presence, and call herself a pro whether or not she’s ready to perform at the professional level and handle milestone special events with care. There are no mandatory licenses, certifications, or industry regulations to protect couples from this misleading, bait-and-switch practice. The only way to make sure you’re hiring the best entertainer for your event is to read reviews from previous clients on third-party websites, watch video from previous events (not just staged promotional footage) to see how she improvises in a real performance environment and interacts with a live audience. Most importantly, ask your other wedding vendors which dancers they’ve worked with and recommend.
