Has anyone seen the videos doing the rounds of the wedding dance routines? has anyone BEEN to a wedding where a prepared dance has taken place? These are the kinds of things I mean

Just to add, I don't mean the regular, Bride and Groom first dance, it is these OTT pre prepared dances that just don't float my boat at all

Well wouldn't have fitted in with the theme of our wedding and looks more like a show rather than a wedding but if that's what they want then so be it.

I would want to sink into the floor in embarrassment if I ever witnessed one of these. I know weddings are about the bride and groom but this screams 'look at me look at meeeeeeee'

i havent seen one in real life

but you could say that about hte B&G first dance - its so tacky and cliched, and as for a big white dress tacky too, doves - tacky...

you do what you want for your wedding and let others do what makes them happy YABU

I get a bit cats-bum mouth about the one in the church... I've seen it before and I just don't think a religious setting is appropriate for arsing about.
There's a big difference between being joyful and being an attention-seeking performer. If you want to do things like that, do them at the reception, or at a civil setting.
I know this probably makes me very old fashioned and unpopular but it just seems as if you are not taking things seriously...

I got to 25 seconds before I had to switch off. Yukworthy.

You know what's awful about these particular examples?

They go on for soooooooooo long... the bit from the Melissa MsWhoever where she gets her new husband up and kisses him while the other dancers sort of fanny about around them ... arse-clenchingly awful

No I think worse is Mr whotzit sitting front and centre as Mrs whotzit puts on a tacks show in front of a gazillion people.

It's not my cup of tea but I think it's quite sweet. It's a celebration, they're happy, I can't get het up about it.

upperlimit Fri 21-Apr-17 15:19:21

Wait, wait, I've just seen the first one (watched them backwards) I take it back.

KoalaDownUnder Fri 21-Apr-17 15:20:02

Wtf did I just watch. blushconfusedblushconfused

Massive mega-cringe.

Just fucking get married and stop with all the attention-seeking OTT bollocks.

originalbiglymavis Fri 21-Apr-17 15:22:03

Feh. Makes you wonder what next? Babies boogying out if the birth canal?

upperlimit Fri 21-Apr-17 15:22:59

I like that Mavis smile

Ahhhh cringe!!!!

TheNaze73 Fri 21-Apr-17 15:24:20

YANBU, they're a bit shit

We were at one last year when the music suddenly changed during the bride and groom's first dance (why the hell do they need a first dance anyway??) and around 20 of their close friends and family members joined them for a choreographed routine. They'd all been rehearsing it for months apparently.

MadisonAvenue Fri 21-Apr-17 15:25:18

Posted too soon. It was tacky.

Roussette Fri 21-Apr-17 15:27:45

YANBU! In the first one, yes of course Melissa whatshername was a good dancer but at certain points it was like a lapdance for her husband. Cringeworthy.

The second one was just embarrassing.

This sort of thing has been done to death and it's too long yes, and boring.

However, I went to a nigerian wedding in this country. Nothing forced, nothing out the ordinary because it's their tradition and that dancing was just wonderful... to watch a sea of fabulous nigerian women in matching ceremonial costume doing their local dance into the reception is something I'll never forget.

The rest is a bit tacky, but each to their own I spose... The next one up on youtube is hilariously awful (Brian does Bieber) here

Oh God, go to a wedding g and have to smile at that display - or worse still, have to spend months practicing, wear a shit sexeee outfit and actually have to make an arse if yourself dance in front of a load people and YouTube. And know that if you don't do it right, or look like you really are enjoying it, bride and groomzilla will never forgive you.

I went to a wedding where they did this at the start of the sit down meal. I wanted to pick up the napkin in front of me and put it over my face so I didn't have to watch.

originalbiglymavis Fri 21-Apr-17 15:30:49

Actually I'd rather break both of my own legs than do that. Thank God I've never seen it in real life. I'm a terribly humorous rude drunk heckler.

Chillyegg Fri 21-Apr-17 15:31:22

See i think tge 1st one is horrendous shes a professional dancer for beyonce and the whole getting 4/5 other women to o jectify themselves like that is gross. The second one is hilarious because its terrible

I have been to a wedding where the bride and groom and the bridal party and groomsmen did a pre planned dance. It was in Texas so it was line dancing and country music. It wasn't too cringey - there wasn't too much soppy acting in it and they were surprisingly all good dancers.

I think it's a very weird thing to do, risky that it doesn't come across very naff.

That JK video was the original I think - or one of the originals that started the whole craze.
