Before I begin, one thing you should know about me is that at the very tip top of my bucket list is to be a member of a Flash Mob in a very public place! Now, my wedding wouldn’t necessarily help me check that off, but I would get a taste of what that would be like if I can pull off what I’m thinking about trying to pull off!
So, my dad and I were chatting about some wedding details, since he’s handy-dandy and has offered to construct a few things that I’m wanting at our cermony site, which is outdoors, when the topic of our dance came up. I had recently showed him the YouTube video of the guy who did a whole flash mob thing to Bruno Mars “Marry You” when he proposed to his gf (OMG if you haven’t seen it, look it up! It is one of the most unique proposals I’ve ever seen! LOVE it!) and my dad knows that I love stuff like that, so he suggested that we do something like that and keep it a secret from everyone…my FH, mom, EVERYONE! I am SO on board with doing something like that and since I take group dance classes and Zumba and was a dancer/cheerleader years ago, I think I could choreograph it to be really cute. I’d like to start off all slow and sweet (because I really do want to have that moment with my daddy) and then a few minutes in, we’ll break it down! My dad has rhythm, but isn’t necessarily the greatest dancer, which I think will make this even cuter!
What do you think? Has anyone done this or seen this done well? Any video links y’all have? Or do think it would be a total disaster? My wedding is only semi-formal and my FH and I tend to take the road less travelled anyway, so I think it would totally fit into the atmosphere that I believe we will have at our wedding. I’d love to hear your thoughts…annnnnd go!
That’s me on the far right and, of course, that’s my daddy in the middle :o)

I personally think it’s a super cute idea! But I’m all about breaking some traditions when it comes to weddings!

I’m usually anti this kind of thing because I think it’s wayyy overdone when the bride and groom do it. However, I’ve never seen it with the dad in on it and I think I’m kind of all about it! Is it just you and your dad doing it? Or will other people be in on it and dancing.

Yea, there’s a video out there of a girl and her dad doing something like that. Very cute. They did all sorts of songs but started off dancing to Butterfly Kisses (I think it was a late 90s wedding) and then the DJ did that thing where they rewind the record and they started doing different choreographed songs together.

I recently saw a video of a woman and her father do the Evolution of Dance breakdown during their dance! It started out sweet and classic like you described, and then there was a vinyl record scratch and the mad beats rolled out, yo.

Thanks for the feedback ladies!
@MrsWBS: it will just be us. I’m going to try like crazy to keep anyone but my dad and the photographer from knowing about it 🙂 If we can make it happen I’ll post it after!
@CarolF: that’s so funny that you say that bc that was one of the thoughts I had haha! We’ll see 😉

If my father and I weren’t both awful dancers I would love to do something like that. The fact that your dad suggested it makes it even more special.

I thought so too! I’m actually a bit surprised that he brought it up. If it had been my idea, I know he’d go along with it if I really wanted him to, but I love that it was his idea 🙂
