Our parents paid for most of our wedding, so we ended up with one of those beautiful but generic weddings. You could substitute any Korean couple and it’d work great.
The only things we had that were “special” (not that the entire thing wasn’t special to us, but from a guest’s perspective) were the bonfire and our first and second dances. We met in ballet, we’ve been dancers all our lives. Some people don’t like choreographed dances but they can bite me, I didn’t start standing on my toes at four to sway like a bottle in the ocean on my wedding day. I got thrown in the air twice, it was dope.

rheedic : You damn RIGHT you should display that exceptional talent! I’d be BESIDE myself to see that kind of thing at a wedding!
When my best friend got married, she asked all of her most talented friends to perform. I sang with an amazing guitar player friend of theirs, and they had her belly dancing troupe come in. Then one of them ate fire and danced with a sword on her head. It was f-ing epic.
I was trained as an operatic soprano and have been singing all my life, and I do intend to have what I’m calling a “karaoke interlude” between the meal and the games we have planned in lieu of dancing, but I’m resisting the urge to sing at the actual ceremony.
I think that’s what makes a wedding special and meaningful, and in your case DOPE!

rheedic : I think when most people hear choreographed wedding dance they imagine having to sit and watch people who have never danced in their lives doing a cringey routine at their wedding. But what you did sounds freaking epic. Good for you!
teamroro : Your friend’s wedding sounds so fun! I love that she incorporated her friends talents, and how varied they all are! And I like your idea of singing instead of dancing between the meal and games. I’m sure that will be really special for your guests!
