    @MeiFrancis:  hmmmmmm maybe find a cover of the song with Freaking instead of F*****G?

    i think its awesome, but i know my grandparents or people with young kids wouldnt like it at all and my family has good humor too..

    @MeiFrancis:  I’m not sure how the F word would be received by your crowd, & it seems like you aren’t either, so I would eer on the side of caution rather than take the leap of faith, because if they don’t like it, it would really be a buzz kill on that moment for you guys.

    Not only that, but it doesn’t have a great beat to it, in my opinion, & it doesn’t seem like a high energy song, & definitely not a romantic song. I wouldn’t use it.

    Then again, I also wouldn’t use blurred lines, because as much as that song is fun, it’s not romantic & to me that was important (it might not be to you though).

    I would save the party songs for your reception entrance, & the dance party at the reception.

    @MeiFrancis:  Most of these people have no sense of humor. That jason mraz song is awesome. I would use it without a second thought.

    I wouldn’t use a song with prominant swearing (as in the f-bomb) if there are kids present, just because, you know, there’s a reason they’re not allowed to say that in PG movies, ha.  I think the cover @Laurenskii:  found is the best way to go with that.

    I also really like “Blurred Lines”- edited for the occasion, of course.  There are for sure edited versions of that.

    Obviously you’re not going to a traditional song, and I see no reason why you should feel forced to.

    Honestly, I think if somebody is so sensitive that a song can offend them, they have a problem. Use whatever song you like!

    @MeiFrancis:  If you have to ask, the answer is yes, its too explicit. 

    Have you seen the viral video of the trashy bride walking down the aisle to a vulgar song? The mood of the ceremony totally changes as the guests go from being happy and supportive to offended, grossed-out, embarrassed and ready to just leave. Is that what you want?

    If you don’t care about offending your guests then you really shouldn’t invite any.
