    wilburnkn:  The flash mob sounds totally fun and like a way better way to express your creativity/personality and have a blast than singing at the ceremony. Good decision, Bee.

    wilburnkn:  geez. I was trying to be as nice as possible here. Go easy on me with all the capitalized letters. You said you arent creating ruckus but going wild with all the capitalized letters seem like you do. And be careful with citing other cultures, it could lead to cultural appropriation. If you go to my country for honeymoon and decided to borrow my country’s wedding tradition because its “cool” Im sorry but please dont. And with that, Im out. So out.

    I vote no singing for all the reasons stated above.

    And – don’t kill me – but I have attended a wedding where there was a flashmob. It was terrible 🙁 Equally cringeworthy…

    So my good friend is also a singer like u… She’s in a band and does a ton of gigs every weekend and has a beautiful voice.

    TBH we waiting for her to sing to him ALL night. we were so excited when she finally did. It was the last song of the reception and she sang Etta James At Last. Her voice rivals Etta’s and literally there was not a dry eye in the whole room, it was the HIGHLIGHT of the night…. I def think u should but do it at the reception, I think UR family and friends will LOVE it

    wilburnkn:  95% of your poll respondents say No, they would not want to see this. Yet every follow-up you post indicates you’re still going to do it. So, have fun I guess. I’m sure nobody will tell you they felt awkward or were cringing, so you’ll never know. So you’ll come back here telling everyone how awesome it was and how everyone absolutely loved it because it was so you and your guests are different. But you should at least consider, are they really SO different that they all love it, when 95% of a random sampling says they’d hate it? But you’ll never know anyway and you seem to really want to do it. It’s not HURTING anyone, so whatever.

    wilburnkn:  I was not at the wedding, as Darling Husband and I were not datign yet. But, his cousins wife sang at their wedding in the middle of the ceremony. It caught everyone by surprise and everyone loved it.

    If you want to, go for it.

    Xu:  Not enough people knew the dance so everyone was just sort of standing there watching those who had arranged and practiced. It was awkward because all involved were quite proud of themselves but no one else seemed care. Also it was a poorly kept secret because most people knew it was coming, so there was no element of surprise. Just a really weird thing at a wedding. A few people were trying to learn it last minute, so they didn’t actually know what to do when it started. The older guests were confused. Just all around weird and didn’t add anything to the evening.

    This was an amazing wedding other than the flashmob.

    sometimes I’m more bored when people force entertainment on me, than when I’m just doing my things. You don’t need to worry about them being bored. there’s food to eat, people to talk to….

    Oh geez, if you’re doing a flashmob then definitely don’t sing. That’s too much “entertainment” for one wedding, in my opinion.

    ETA: It’s also kind of funny you say you want to do a flashmob because you don’t want guests to be bored. So you would rather they feel intense second hand embarassment? Because that’s the reaction of like, 99.9% of people watching a flashmob at a wedding. Even if they say it’s great or have smiles on their faces or know your “crazy” personality. They are cringing inside.
