So Fiance really hasn’t been very opinionated with the wedding, the one thing he is really excited about is the song for the garter toss. As soon as we talked about it he automatically suggested a song. Animals by Nickleback. Granted he did say he could pick something else if I wasn’t okay with it… which led me to listen to the song. Now that I’ve actually heard the song and read the lyrics because I couldn’t understand everything they said, I’m not too sure I want it played.
What do you bee’s think? For me I have to hear a song a few times before I can really pay attention to the lyrics so part of me is thinking a lot of people won’t catch the meaning.

Ahem…. wow. I’m pretty certain I would catch this as a guest and I didn’t even look up lyrics. Um, to be to brutally honest, I would find this to be in very poor taste. For what it’s worth, though, I’m pretty modest to begin with and knowing that family and possibly grandparents/elderly guests would be there, it’d be too much. I think the garter toss is awkward enough as it is.

I would not be at all comfortable playing that song at an event my grandparents will be attending! That would be super embarassing! The only compromise I can think of is cutting it to only be the chorus or something…but I don’t think he is keeping your invite list in mind with that song! I would probably sarcastically ask my Fiance if he’d also like to mix in some “Hey Mister” since we’re sticking with songs that are oh so appropriate! (not serious there…if you’ve never heard the song it is very very bad for a wedding, it’s DH’s and I’s go-to example for bad songs to play around parents or grandparents)

I would be COMPLETELY down to play this song for the garter toss! Best garter toss song I’ve heard of yet! Then again my opinions are a little more… Relaxed, than most of the opinions you find on here.
