My love came home from work last night so excited to tell me he had found “our song”. He went on and on about how it was so perfect for us, and that it HAD to be our first dance at our wedding. He even made me promise to give him this. Then it happens, he plays me this video:
Wow, really? I mean, he is right, it’s quirky like us. I even like it, but I’m in shock. Am I really going to give him this? He has been so perfect and given me everything I want for our wedding. He hasn’t aked for a thing, until now.

@nannydeprivedmama:I love love love this song, always have. I’m not a good enough dancer to dance to it at the first dance, but we’ll definitely be playing it during cocktail hour (when my easily offended southern baptist family members will be with me taking pictures). If you don’t think your guests will be offended by the sniffing undies part, then you should give him this.
He also sings “Glory of True Love”and “She is my everything”, both of which might appeal to your FI while without having the objectionable lyrics.

to be honest, I am not anything near conservative but if I heard the words “laid” “sniffing panties” and the like I would find it really uncomfortable. I can’t imagine how someone who DOES have delicate sensibilities would react.

I’m with shedayz on this one, although I guess it really depends on your guests, your family and everyone else present. How comfortable are you with them listening to lyrices which speak about making someone “horny’ or someone’s “balls?” For instance, I wouldn’t mind playing this son around a few friends or certain family members, but I would never play it around my grandparents or certain co-workers.

Love love love love love love love love this song. I think it’s adorable. And I love John Prine, I think a lot of people do, so I can see it going over well.

I’m not at all concerned about our families reactions. We are having an intimate wedding, and everyone that will be there is totally laid back. I don’t want to sound tastless when I say this either, but cocktail hour is before our first dance so everyone will definitly be feeling loose by the time we rock out to this.
This song choice has really caught me off guard, but I can say that I’m enjoying cheating on my wedding song boyfriend, Michael Buble, with John Prine. His songs are not traditional, but they pack a lot of sweetness in a very untraditional way.

I think that *if* you are comfortable with the raunchier aspects of it, you should let him have his choice on this, since you’ve gotten yours for everything else. I know if I heard this at a wedding I would LOVE it.
