- Wedding: October 2011
The parents and bridal party were introduced to the ballroom to “Don’t stop ‘til you get enough” by Michael Jackson. It went down a treat!
We walked in to the Seinfeld theme song (our favourite show). I’m not sure if many people got the joke, but we enjoyed it, so we weren’t really bothered!!
We went straight into our first dance to Colbie Cailat’s “Bubbly”, which ended up being more or a shuffle but was lovely none the less!
After a few minutes we had the MC invite the rest of the bridal party and their partners to join us:
Father/Daughter & Mother/Son combined dance:
We decided that we would do a combined dance both to save time, and because none of us really enjoy being in the spotlight too much.
We danced to Stevie Wonder’s “You are the Sunshine of my Life” and it was lovely.
Then my Father-In-Law brought my Mum up and they totally stole the show from us!!
My dad made the first speech and it was (surprisingly) the best speech of the night! I love my dad but I he’s usually very quiet and reserved, so I was expecting a really short and to-the-point speech, but it was hilarious (he has a VERY dry sense of humour) and everyone really enjoyed it.
My Darling Husband then made a speech. Bless him, he was so nervous that we ended up moving them to slightly earlier in the night so that he could get it over with. He did a great job though.
The best man was my DH’s best friend who happens to be a very talkative Irish man!
He made everyone laugh
He ended with a lovely toast:
Cutting the cake:
We presented our mums with some beautiful bouquets to say thank you for all of their help and support.
This post has become so long, I’m going to do a seperate one for dancing, keep your eyes peeled!
