I just don’t like this… every time I’ve seen it on video, I think it just looks like the bride isn’t serious or interested.
I think you can set that mood with your reception entrance, but your ceremony is a serious life choice, and to come into it dancing seems a little disrespectful to me – and I’m all about alternate wedding ideas!

My FI is super excited for the moment I walk down the aisle toward him – he’s been waiting for it for years. If I danced instead, I think it would hurt his feelings terribly.

@CakeyP:  +1

I agree, whenever I see this (or the ones where the bride sings down the aisle), I find it very awkward and uncomfortable and also kind of “look at me!” of the bride.

@Charliejeorge:  I’m with the other bee that I really don’t like this idea. I think it can be super awkward for your guests and takes away from the serenity of a ceremony. I think the mood would be better set doing a really fun entrance to your reception.  I am cringing a little even suggesting these because I do think most songs like this have a sexy vibe and I’m sure your dance moves will be somewhat sexy and I just don’t think that your bridal entrance is the time and place for this.

That being said, it is your wedding and you know your guests and fiance better than anyone. I like older music so some options might be Hall and Oates “You Make My Dreams”, Elvis “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, and Michael Jackson “The way you make me feel”.

Oh, and if you do go through with this then make sure you hire a videographer.

Sorry that I have to agree but I think it’s so tacky looking and makes it look like you’re not serious. I would do an awesome dance for the reception though !

@Charliejeorge:  I’d be nervous (for you) that because this is very much not the norm for bridal entrances, after all your BP makes it down the aisle and the music changes your guests might be so shocked and kind of confused that they might just end up staring at you confusingly as you dance (potentially awkwardly and with your dad?) down the aisle.

@Charliejeorge:  Best of luck to you then, I hope you’re able to find the perfect song for you. 🙂

I agree with the others that it may not set the best tone… But if you are 100% sure your FI won’t be disappointed then to each their own. What about something upbeat that you can kind of “sway” into like “little darlin'” by Landon Pigg?

I wish I had a song rec – I can’t think of anything – but I wanted to say that I am in support of this idea and I hope you can find the perfect song.

@Charliejeorge:   I think if you’re under the impression that it would take the attention off of you I think that you might have the wrong impression! I think it would be the exact opposite!

I mean…I’m not going to tell you what is tacky and what isn’t, because it really is all personal opinion.  But as a guest, I know I wouldn’t dance with you because I honestly wouldn’t know what the heck was going on.
