I like this thread a lot!  I read through the pet peeves thread but didn’t comment – it was just too much negativity for me! 

We went to a friend’s wedding recently that had nice fresh coffee at around 10:00 – it was a great touch, and I got the bartender to put some Bailey’s in it for me 😀  I want to do that for ours as well.

I am loving this thread! I have only been to a couple weddings. One thing the last one i went to did was the DJ gave out a number for guests to text and leave messages and they had them posted on a big screen in the reception room.

When my uncle and his partner got married they shot off a cannon. No lie. They wanted to go out with a bang.

We did the specialty coffee bar too. Lots of our guests seemed to love it!

My Maid/Matron of Honor got married last summer, and her family is Lebanese (though they’ve been in the US for at least three generations, they still keep their traditions).  Though the first three or four hours of the reception had normal music and such, eventually the band left, and then they brought in a Lebanese DJ.  Her entire massive family all got on the dance floor and started doing all these traditional folk dances.  It involved her brother and male cousins doing a lot of crazy stomping and generally just rocking out on the dance floor.  They grabbed all the other guests who wanted in and dragged us along, too.  It was so much fun!

I went to a wedding where the ceremony was at 2PM with a light reception to follow (no meal). At 5PM, near the end of the reception, they opened up a coffee bar with all the fixings to make specialty lattes and whatever else people order at coffee houses, and they sent them with us in those nice to-go cups. It was a nice touch.

One of my cousins instead of doing any alcohol because they are not big drinkers did a coffee bar instead and had a local coffee shope bring in espresson machines and everything to make people their favorite drinks

Last year at my MOHs wedding they too had a karaoke machine they started out the party with a DJ and then about half way through the dj brought out the karaoke stuff. The couple loves to karaoke so it was so them. They had a beautiful wedding and reception. Very elegant, but that made it really fun even though you dont see that alot.

Then the last wedding I went to did a reverse anniversary dance. So all the married couples went on the dance floor together including the bride and groom and the people that were married the longest got off the floor first and so on until only the bride and groom were left and that led ito their first dance. It was odd… But it seemed to flow nicly.

I went to a wedding where they did a “steal the bride” thing. At the reception, a family member came and stole the briide out of the room. Then another family member told the groom if he wanted his bride back he had to prove his love by singing a song! He is a major parrotthead ( ie, a huge Jimmy buffett fan) so he began to ramble the lyrics to “changes in lattitudes’ !! not the most romantic song but a very popular one. It was so funny!! My Fiance said there is no way he is going to do that! i said yes you are!! lol
