I’ve been going back and forth about what to do for a surprise for my soon to be at the reception. Well I came up with the idea to get with 2 of his sisters (one of whom is cheoreographer) and put together a dance routine to Destiny Child’s Cater 2 U. We will change into something really form fitting and sit Fiance and 2 other groomsman down in chairs and kinda do a little lap dance sorta (nothing too steamy that kids can’t see). If you seen Destiny Child on BET when they performed this song and had the guys in chairs then you know what I’m trying to describe. What are you going to do?

This sounds like too much for a reception and would maybe be a better fit at a joint bachelor/ette party? If you posted a youtube link to what you are describing, you might get better feedback.

I don’t think singing a song is a bad idea. But I can’t imagine being on board with a song in tight fitting dresses, boys sitting in chairs, "little lap dance sorta"… As you’ve described it, I don’t see how you can make it still appropriate for kids.

I would just worry about all the time it would take to set up for this, even if it’s just 15-20 minutes (then you have to change back- another 15 minutes), depending on how long your reception is, do you really want to lose all that time? It seems that 90% of brides (my opinion!) always say that they wish they had more time at the reception! But, if it’s important to you and that outweighs it, do what you think will be fun!

Aww I think it’s a super cute idea. I love that song and I don’t think the song or the accompanying dance is too racy. Would you actually be singing or just doing the dance? If you’re not a strong singer I would suggest just doing the dance. Plus there is A LOT of fast singing in that song (as I’m sure you’re aware). If it’s something that’s really important to you, I say go for it. It seems like you’re going to do it in a classy way, just like DC. Just make sure some one gets it on camera!

I always think that surprise dances are a really cute idea, and a great way to express your fun side, Go for it! My only suggestion, is the changing part, I agree that it might take too long to change in/out of the outfits. Plus I think it will make the dance more fun if you get down in your wedding dress!

I was going to do a surprise dance for my husband! I think it can be a really fun idea. Just be cautious wiht the appropriate around kids line. Maybe gear it a little to the sweeter side or incorporate it in the garter removal/toss.

eh I’m not crazy about the idea. As a guest, all I would be thinking is one word: awkward. Even if its not too risque, its still sort of… a show. I guess it depends on how your guests would react but I know mine would probably think its a little strange.
I also don’t know how much I like the idea of breaking up the reception to include it. I get bored when weddings have a lot of “special dances” outside the first dance and father/daughter-mother/son dance.
