So, my SO and I were talking and I mentioned that I think it would be funny if the song “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen would play immediately after we are introduced as man and wife. As in, another one off the market, another one gets married, etc.
My mom thinks it would be funny, my SO likes the idea but not the song, and my best friend thinks its tacky lol.
What do you guys think of the idea if you were a guest? We are both very sarcastic/dry humor so it fits our personality. Also, any other song ideas that are similar since Mr J doesn’t like that particular song (I was shocked btw, who doesn’t like Queen?!)? Thanks for the input ladies! :]

If it fits you and your FH then go for it. FH and I want the Doctor Who theme to play when we’re leaving the chapel (at a bed and breakfast) because the Doctor always has an adventure and we’re embarking on our adventure as a married couple. Some people think it’s stupid, but it’s us.

This is so funny! My Dad has always told me that my wedding song should be “another one bites the dust” He said he wants it at my wedding, and then at my funeral. He has said this since I was a little girl. Stay true to yourself, don’t worry about others thinking its tacky! 🙂

Honestly? I think it’s really cute. Who doesn’t love Queen and everyone knows that song!

@SouthernGirl: As a fellow Whovian, I think you should definitely go for it. I swore my wedding vows on fish fingers and custard.

Fiance and I wouldn’t do it for our wedding, because it’s just not our personality. However, it could be funny with the right couple!

I hate it when people do silly things at the ceremony, and I dont find it funny its actually akward.
but like everyone says it is your wedding! If you think your guests would find it funny, then do it! It would be memorable!

I thought when I get dropped into the ground in a casket I want either that song or “drop it like it’s hot.”

I’d think it was cute a def let out a chuckle if I were at a wedding and that played! I say go for it!

I voted tacky because in many people’s minds it’s got a negative connotation, as in “well that groom’s bitten the dust, his life as a free man is over”. Kind of like those cake toppers where the bride is bossing the groom, or those photos where the groom is being dragged into the chapel by the bride. But if that sort of thing suits your style of humour, go for it.

Do it if it’s you and your SO’s personalities! And everyone should love Queen!! We wanted too play “The Final Countdown” as we walked down the aisle together but instead we got side tracked and just let the iPod play on random… It ended up being REO Speed Wagon’s Keep on Lovin You.. Haha. Still loved it! We are goofy and people would have never thought tacky because they know us, so if people know you, they won’t think tacky.
