What do you all think of this, is it too much right after the ceremony? Day dreaming actually brought me there, dancing with my love to OUR song right there on the beach. Gezz it gives me butterflies in my tummy thinking of it Anyways let me know what you did or are doing/what you think??? xo Kay
I was wishing for a traditional one, but our resort says they usually go right into first dance right after the ceremony too..., right on the sand.
So what I think will happen is we will have our ceremony, then our recessional ("We Go Together", from Grease, one of my fave movies - it was FI's idea) and then right into our dance back at the "start" of the aisle I guess? Our first dance FI also picked... He suggested keeping it light and fun (while I wanted to go more traditional, but he won that one) so we are having "Hey Soul Sister" by Train as our first dance.
I like your train of thought though... and why not break with tradition and do your dance right on the sand? DWs certainly do not follow traditions in other ways... may as well change this too!
I say, do whatever you want to do! If it gives "gives you butterflies in your tummy just thinking about it", I say go for it!
