Anyone out there thinking about "Rock the Reception"?

Recommended Posts

So I'm watching Rock the Reception on TLC right now and it's totally cracking me up. My FI really wants to take swing dancing lessons (He's 6"6 and I'm 5"2) I kinda put the stop on it because our reception is on the beach but we ordered a dance floor so now I'm getting back in to the idea. Just wondering if anyone out there is doing something different for their first dance.

 

Love to hear your thoughts!

We're planning on doing one - Evolution of Dance style! I'm super excited about it - I think our guests will absolutely love it!! We don't have a lot of rhythm, so we'd better start practicing now :)

We are to!!! I am so excited. My FI has created a mix where we start off to a traditional song and then it scratches out and another songs play. I am going to dance to two, he is going to dance to two, like a dance battle and then we are going to do a few songs together and then back to the origional song! I am so excited...songs are as follows:

 

Sara Evens - Could not ask for more (Us)

Sir mix a lot -baby got back(me)

Beasty boys - brass monkey(me)

Michael Jackson - Billy Jean(FI)

red sox's irish jig(FI)

Macarana(us)

Apache(us)

lets do the twist(us)

Sara evens could not ask for more(us)

 

Our guests are going to love it cause FI doesn't dance so they'll all be shocked.

 

We just down loaded a program off the internet and mixed our own songs. Let me know if you need the program info!!!

We had a wedding we photographed where the couple did it. They just told us they had taken dance lessons, so even we were shocked! They were kind of shy and laid back and they rocked it!!!! Their bridal party loved it and we got some awesome shots with their expressions, etc. It was great!

I was for it since the very beginning when I saw the original dance that made it popular on Ellen.. haha

 

My FI at first was a little hesitant, but now hes starting to embrace the idea.. we are going to do our own choreography since we both were cheerleaders (we should be able to make SOMETHING creative).. and we'll add our wedding party into it while we are down there.. very excited!! :o)

I'd rather speak in public, completely nude, with ratty hair, wearing my glasses, and make animal noises than dance in public to a choreographed dance!! OMG this would be a total nightmare for me! Even the thought of doing the traditional slow dance in front of others makes me feel queasy! I really wanted to do this thinking that maybe it would make me feel more comfortable but now I'm not so sure. I don't like dancing, let alone in front of others so it's not really my thing, although when i see people do it i love SO MUCH. I did pitch the idea to FI and he's down with it if I want to.

We are so doing this!!! We didn't even know my FI could dance, he just doesn't seem like a dancer.... he's a video game, computer building geek. A oouple years ago at his brothers wedding he all of a sudden just started dancing to "ridin dirty" (very funny cause his bro is a cop!) and he was really good! All 300 guests were in absolute shock. He danced the night away. Now we'll see cops downtown and the ones we're not real close w/ will say Hey you're Sean's brother that can dance. We all chuckle. I've never actually seen the show. FI brought this idea to me months ago and its been his only request.
