I was reading Katie’s Happy Humpday post over at Can I Say… and it got me thinking about dances… wedding dances.
For those that stalk me enough know that when I go to a Wedding I’m always taking what I like about that wedding and start forming my own dream wedding. I know I sound like a girl but I’ve been to enough weddings where I enjoy seeing what choices a couple makes when they celebrate their nuptials. Do they have a big wedding? A small wedding? Stupid center pieces? Cocktail hour? Open bar?
Well when it comes to the first dance I’m always interested in if they go traditional or if they put a little funk into it. My cousin Mai had a really impressive dance that showed off her what must have been weeks of dance lessons. A couple of years ago I saw this Good Morning America piece that revealed a trend in more creative wedding dances.
So here’s my idea: when I get married I don’t want a boring intro of a DJ reading names over U2 or Fat Boy Slim- I think it would be cool to instead show a video of my wedding party doing the final dance number in Slumdog Millionaire:
Wouldn’t that be cool? Then right when the video ends or something it leads into a live dance number. Maybe an Evolution of Dance type number. Maybe it’ll be a highly choreographed dance number with break-dancers. I was also thinking about something really classy- like the Tango from True Lies. A Thriller wedding dance? Eh it’s been done.
I’m so far away from being married that chances are there will be some new dance that’s even more popular than the Superman Wedding Dance.
What do you think? Am I crazy? I think it’d be a hell of a wedding reception…
