Heh heh, I came here to say the music.  It’s the only thing that I’d be the least bit snobby about, because try as I might, I just can’t get excited about really bad music.

Well, I guess favors sometimes too… Mostly because I get annoyed having to carry home a cheesy plastic doll or scented candle, but I would feel too bad for the bride if I left it.  Needless to say, we’re not doing favors, but instead donating to charity!

Dances you THINK you have to do at a wedding.

Chicken dance and electric slide.

Damn I wish I had a dollar for every time I was encouraged to jump on the dance floor and do the electric slide.  Do I need to mention that people danced to that when I got married to my xh like 14 years ago????  I know every grandma and grandpa can do it, and every kid can do it but pleeeeeeze…NO MORE!!!

Another thing I hate are morbid sounding string quartets.  Some which have sounded more appropriate for a funeral than a wedding imho.

If you have a string quartet (which I probably will) please have them play some lighter hearted types of songs..

and NO CAKE SMASHING..nope.  None of it.  I abhor cake smashing when the groom smushes it onto the bride and then she has to do the same in return.  It makes me mad as a woman, she went to TROUBLE to have good hair and makeup and he does that????

I dont think I can do too many bad songs—like play that funky music white boy, too much 70s dont like celebrate good times, we are family, no lionel richie songs too overplayed etc I dont like michael jackson, no sappy ballads ugh

 

I want mostly current top 40s kanye west-love lockdown, rihanna dont stop the music, , flo ri da low, chris brown, beyonce all the single ladies etc,a little house by RIO where the sun shines on some of my old nostalgic favorites just for fun some madonna like a virgin (esp withb my gown!), like a prayer, what is love (snl), shout, melt with you, dancing queen, conga (I want to do a conga line)

 

I am definitely going to have electric slide and YMCA, no cha cha slide, too long, no macarena

 

the last song will be New York New York coz we got married in NYC; I want to do a long chorus line; we always end our parties with this song, so much fun some thinkits cheesy, it’s a blast, kicking our legs up, hilarious! my FI agrees

 

he doesnt like hiphop, I may have to tone it down a bit, but I have to have my hip hop I love it! I’m an Asian girl who loves hip hop what can I do,  I have to dance on my wedding day!

I wouldn’t say hate but these are things that take away from my enjoyment of a person’s wedding:

– no parking or paying for parking

– cash bar

– big gaps of time between ceremony and reception (esp in an area that is not too close to where you are staying or live), with nothing to do.

Oh no!  I have a string quartet booked for our ceremony, I never thought of them sounding morbid.  🙂

When someone has a bad DJ it seems like everyone talks about it for awhile afterwards.

Also, I don’t like couples that are a bit too affectionate.   I know that sounds weird but at one wedding the groom was feeling up his bride during their first dance.  His hands were practically down the front of her dress.   It made everyone feel a bit uncomfortable.

@SmokiePenelope:  About the string quartet..I went to a wedding and all they played were slow sad sounding songs.  I am going to have one too btw, and am going to have classical and some happy sounding songs along with the slower ones.  It was nonstop slow, somber classical they played.
