Honestly, yes, I think it’s too much. Firstly, I think if your fiance isn’t convinced, it’s his wedding too, so you should respect his wishes. I also think its asking a lot of your bridesmaids and groomsmen. Sure, they might agree now, but weddings already require a lot of time and money, and I think they’d be feeling differently having to give even more time to rehearse this. I’m guessing they are just trying to make you happy and didn’t think about how much time it will take. Especially if these people aren’t experienced dancers, it’s going to require significant amount of rehearsal time. 

Also, I think if you are going to do a production like this, it should be something original, not something ripped off of a tv show. And in my personal opinion, as cute as this could be if done really well, I think a wedding is a serious event and this is just making light of it. If you really want to do a dance, I personally think the reception is the more appropriate place for it. Sorry.

Yeah, it’s a bit much to me. And I think for most wedding parties, it won’t turn out as well as, you know, a scripted choreographed TV show with professional actors/singers.

I think it is a little much, I think the reception would be a much more appropriate place for something like this.

So this is one of my all-time favorite scenes from Glee…but I have to say that I agree with PP that it might be a bit much, especially if your Fiance isn’t onboard with the idea. But I think @babyfrankie hit the nail on the head – it would be an awesome song to begin the reception with!

No. Just no. If you want to do something silly, do it at the reception. I just went to a wedding where the bride had the bridesmaids “dance” down the aisle to a pop song. It was SO AWKWARD and tacky, particularly seeing the uncomfortable expressions on the faces of those who were clearly not good dancers.

Ceremonies are supposed to be serious, and while I understand that the two of you are overjoyed to be getting married, let’s remember that at the crux of this event is a very solemn vow that you take to honor each other for the rest of your lives….dancing around in a church just before that is innappropriate.  You want a floor show?  Do one at the reception, that’s fine.  Things like this are really cute and entertaining, but have no place in a wedding.

I have to say that I’m with everyone else on this one. The video is very cute but I really think anything that silly and “fun” should be saved for the reception. Also, if your Fiance isn’t into it, I really think it would be unfair to him to hyjack the wedding and force him to do something he thinks is tacky. Just my opinion.

I love it, but I’m a huge Gleek 😀 I wouldn’t push the groom into it if he’s just not comfortable with it, though. It’s his wedding too.

ehh no. i would be mortified if i were a bridesmaid and was asked to do that. it’s an even bigger no if your fiance isn’t on board with it. if you still want to include some kind of song or dance at your wedding, i think it would be more appropriate at the reception.

I will go against the grain and say yes, if this represents you all as a couple, I think it’s a good idea. I think each couple is unique and if this suits you as a couple, go for it. Get lots, and lots, and lots of practice though.

I agree with PPs… I have a feeling you’ll end up regretting it years down the line.

That looks really cheesy, and that’s with it being choreographed and done by people who dance and sing for a living.  I can only imagine how awkward it’ll look done by people who have never done this before.  Besides, it’s a wedding, not a theater production.

@MadameTussaud:  agreed. Sorry, OP, I really don’t like it.
