New Trend in First Dances Tacky?

Recommended Posts

What do you think in this new trend of making first dances into a perfomance and posting it on youtube? It never really insipred anything in me either way, but I thought this article was interesting:

 

Money News:- Weddings' First Dance Spins Out of Control - AOL Money & Finance

 

We're not even having dancing at our wedding, we are having other entertainment. I think the whole YouTube thing is lame. I don't understrand YouTube in general though. I mean, as a way to share videos with family and friends is one thing, but to create things with the target of being popular on YouTube is weird to me. If not done for YouTube, it looks fun, but I don't think FI would go for it!

First dances should be about the couple, not the couple and their cast members. I'm all for people doing a dance that expresses their personality, but when it involves doing a production as described in the article ( complete with auditions and understudieshuh.gif), that's completely over the top, and yes, tacky. If people really want to throw on a production, they should save it for later during the reception. A wedding should be about celebrating love and a new union not 10 seconds of fame on youtube. Personally, we'll be dancing an unchoreographed argentine tango. I'll admit to having picked out my wedding dress and shoes with that first dance in mind. However, our guests won't expect anything less than that since we did after all meet in a tango class!

I guess I'm the odd man out here. I don't get the whole thing with posting on YouTube, I wouldn't post mine on YouTube, but the idea of a dance like that is really neat. Aaron and I actually talked about doing a "different" kind of a dance because we're both pretty brutal dancers and both of us are really laid back and don't care about following tradition. I'd consider doing that dance! Yes, the first dance is about the couple, but we -as a couple - are all about our family and friends and we love to draw a good laugh. I'm 100% for this.

 

...but I wouldn't ever post it on YouTube lol.

Very interesting that the couple chose thrillr and spent lots of money on a choreographer (sp). I dont care that much about the first dance. i would rather spend more money on a video of the wedding than a choreographed dance.

lol you don't need to hire a choreographer... you just watch the music video like 489 times!! If anything, you're sick of that song before you've got the dance down!

I think someone posted this video a while ago and I cringed thinking that I really hope I don't know anyone who would do this. My fiance spends tons of time looking at funny videos, but I agree I don't get the excitement of UTube, of course it took years for my friends to finally convince me to get a myspace and that is only because I live so far away and the time difference makes communication difficult

What?!? No, never seen or heard of it, but I don't know if I'd watch it. For a bride, I've never really liked watching wedding themed shows oddly enough!

FI and I would totally bust out in a fun dance in the middle or end of our first dance! I would love to put a little bit of "The way you make me feel" in the dance - just for fun. We are a goofy ass couple so anything too lovey-dovey like a long romantic first dance would be weird for us. But I would NEVER post a video somewhere. NEVER EVER EVER.

 

My MOH's sister got married this fall and in the middle of the father/daughter dance the song switched to HandJive from Grease. It was so fun and cute. It was a total suprise to everyone, including my MOH and the mom. Her dad had been sneaking up to her house and practicing with her for weeks. It was so sweet because he is not a good dancer.
