Getting married to DP next July.

I feel doing a choreographed YMCA, Macarena or ShaddapaYaFace would be spectacular. He disagrees.

We have discussed the possibility of omitting it entirely, but are still looking for common ground.

AIBU or is he BU? Any alternative suggestions?

I think it should just be a communal Oops Upside Yer Head.

Choreographed wedding dances are cringy! Sorry! Not helpful.

Please tell me you're being sarcastic!!

The Ketchup Song, with full audience participation of course

I'd just have a quick smooch on the dance floor to something you both like.

MissBax Fri 04-Aug-17 18:56:58

Neither is BU - you just have different preferences

Kylie Minogue and the locomotion?

PotteringAlong Fri 04-Aug-17 18:57:35

Or Thriller. Go on, please do thriller... grin

May I suggest The Birdie Song, Agadoo or the Superman Song?

Y ABU Cringey at best and worse again if one half is forcred in to doing it.

PotteringAlong Fri 04-Aug-17 18:58:50

What happened to just shuffling around in an embarrassed fashion to the Anniversary Waltz or other suitably waltzy tune?

I've never been to a wedding with a choreographed first dance.

S'not fair sad

Choreographed dances are cringey, but not if they are done to take this piss out of those cheesy choreographed dances! Do it! But upload the video here after!

If he wants to do something tasteful and inconspicuous and you want to do that I doubt there is much common ground.

You should do "The Routine" from Friend's. I wish we had done it TBH.

We didn't do a first dance.

EccentricPickle Fri 04-Aug-17 19:10:14

Friends! Fucking autocorrect thinking it knows better than I do! angry

TheCatOfAthenry Fri 04-Aug-17 19:11:59

I suggested Thriller too. He was not having it.

We could shuffle, but I'm a flash kind of lady who needs to strut her stuff.

Waltzing to Gangnam Style is a kind of middle ground?

MirandaWest Fri 04-Aug-17 19:12:39

We danced to a song which isn't a typical wedding song, but it had a slow beginning and then got faster. Was great fun grin

x2boys Fri 04-Aug-17 19:14:45

Cha cha slide?

Wh0Kn0wsWhereTheTimeGoes Fri 04-Aug-17 19:29:53

Omit it entirely, we did. I'd had enough of being the centre of attention by then.

Where is the wedding? - google The Grand March - This is what we often start a wedding with in Scotland.
