Note: I'm NOT getting married
I'm often finding myself daydreaming fantasing about my eventual wedding and what i want it to kind of be like, i keep coming back to the first dance. I do actually take latin dance lessons and would love to do a bachata dance for my first dance, have a look at the video below:
However i know not every will want to dance like that, so i'm just wondering what kinda dance would people most commonly do at a wedding, we talking like a Waltz or just your standard 'slow dance' (which admitley i'd find a bit boring, but if it was with the girl i love i wouldn't care too much)

Have you been to many weddings? See, the thing is, people will all kinda be paying attention to you... but, at the same time, they probably won't FULLY be paying attention to you. If you plan out something that's truly performance art, this may turn out to be a bit anticlimactic.
On the other hand, it's absolutely possible that you could stop the music during the reception, and put on a show. That would be pretty cool, for sure.
And it's just as possible that you could spontaneously stop somewhere, anywhere, and just decide to put on a performance for yourselves and only for yourselves. My husband has pulled over for our share of impromptu tangos in random empty downtown parking lots at 4AM, and, those moments touched my heart a lot more than I might have expected.1

I have done a choreographed wedding dance and there are a few points you must remember.
1. The girl will be wearing a wedding dress. This can make some movements more difficult and, depending on the dress, it may also hide much of the hip action that characterizes some dances.
2. A wedding is a stressful event for the bride and groom. Of course it is a happy day but it is also marked by worries about everything happening according to plans, self-consciousness about being in front of a church full of people, will the bartender show up on time, etc. If both partners are not very comfortable with dancing, this can add an other source of stress to the day. In general, one tactic for planning a successful wedding is to minimize the sources of stress.1
