We are going to have an awesome surprise entrance!  Our venue has pocket doors that lead from the cocktail area into the reception room, which is where the bridal party will enter during announcements. 

After the bridal party is announced, the lights are going to shut down and the music will cut to silence. 

At this exact moment (building suspense here too, huh?) Fiance and I will sneak onto the dance floor from an outside door, which will be behind everyone, at the opposite side of the room.  So the guests will be looking north and we’re sneaking in south.  Then, the lights will turn on and Frank Sinatra will be singing “I did it myyyyyyyy wayyyyyyyy” (sound bite).  Then we will do our first dance!

Well nearly everything is a suprise because i’m not sharing any infor with anyone unless they are involved and need to people… 

I’m giving out 3 different favors.. the pastries from the Future Mother-In-Law that I wrote about yesterdy, which I have now decided to put in chinse take out boxes wrapped with ribbon, jordan almonds in pillow boxes and DIY fans.

I have some very talented people in my bridal party so the bridesmaids and groomsmen will be doing a choreographed dance to enter the reception hall

I cant think of anything else out of the ordinary except that my table numbers are really wooden letters.. lol

My Dad and I are dancing to a fast song as our father daughter dance. That’s really the only thing we’re purposely not telling people, but I also put a lot of thought and effort into making all of the details really special and personal. I think our guests will be pretty surprised by all the little things.

FH and I are taking dance lessons for our first dance – my mom is a HUGE fan of all those dancing shows so seeing me actually KNOW how to dance instead of my usual “High School Dance” method is going to be great!

A photo booth and we’re super stocking it up with stuff that represents our friends and family – flags from the countries represented, favourite team shirts, etc.

Hmm…this is making me want to have MORE surprises!
