@Hyperventilate:  I’m with you. I love it when people make their wedding their own. Even though some people looked uncomfortable, I bet they laughed afterward and repeated the story for weeks.

However, I don’t think this song was appropriate for the audience. She shouldn’t have invited children if she wanted to sing about having wild sex.

@This Time Round:  After reading the lyrics, I retract my statement.  Inappropriate lyrics.  Song choice needed to be sensitive to the guests.

I personally think it’s super trashy and I would be very upset if I attended a wedding with my children and something like that happened without warning. If she was my mother or grandmother, I’d be super embarrased, clearly her own daughter was not as she ws the one who put the video online. 

Here is an article about it.

Personally I would never want that for my wedding but if it makes her happy I see no issue with it.  The perfect wedding is different to everyone.  If she didn’t create programs with that song as what she walked to on them then I think she should have because it’s not a song for children.  Hopefully none of those parents had to explain the birds and the bees during the reception.

It could have been a lot worse.  She could have been naked or had an uncovered tattoo of a naked person.

It completely fits with the bandanas.  It’s a theme, just not one I’d ever want to see.

She can do what she wants but having a song with that much profanity when there are children there is highly inappropriate and disrespectful to your guests in my opinion.

I’m all for someone doing something different (I know someone who walked down the aisle to “Highway to Hell” – it fit them), BUT if you are going to be doing a song like the one in the video complete with the dance moves then I think you should give fair warning to guests (there were obviously a bunch of guests that were not expecting it at all). It definitely will be a memorable wedding, that’s for sure.

@Hyperventilate:  I tend to agree with you. It’s the bride’s choice what she wants to walk down the aisle too, and if that’s what fits her and her groom, so be it. However, I do think they should have edited some of the language in the song since there are kids there. Depending on how old the kids were, they may not have picked up on the content of the song, especially if it was edited. I think that’s my biggest problem with the video.

Rarely do I say that this is truly a terrible terrible thing. Tacky and totally disrespectful….

I love this song….to sing in my car by myself and not in front of my poor grandmother/parents/elderly family members.

I think this was a poor choice on the bride’s part.

I’ve no objection to a spot of unconventionality. I think I’d have been a tad more mindful of the lyrics bearing in mind the number of children present, however. I’ve got a nearly 3 year old granddaughter who would just love repeating that sort of song without, of course, any idea of its inappropriateness!

But from the rest of the wedding pictures featured in the newspaper article, I’m surprised that anyone in attendance was really surprised at her choice. However, the whole viral fiasco should be (yet another!) a cautionary warning about plastering your life all over YouTube.
