WR: curse words

I'm planning a few kids at the wedding, I'm wondering.  Is it acceptable to have songs with swear words at the reception? I don't really want to get 'clean' versions. And there's a group that I really want played during the cocktail hour and they curse, its nice social music though. Nothing hard core.Are parents going to be p!ssed?

    I was really wondering how curse words were going to be wedding related.  :)FWIW, we asked our DJ to play the radio edited version of songs.

    I guess it would depend on what the word is, how it's used, is it repeated often or just really a one time thing.  And, if you're not really listening very hard, is it really going to stand out?If it's something where they're saying fucck every other word, or using it in really obscene ways - then I'd say no.

    I agree with Erica - I would avoid any extremely obscene songs. If its an occasional swear word or not very noticeable, you should be fine. We had lots of children at our wedding (30ish) and we had a few songs with a mild swear word here and there. The kids and their parents danced along without complaint :)

    I'd think parents would be ok with mild curse words. I'm sure the kids hear it elsewhere, and probably worse. I didn't have a lot of kids at mine, or a lot of swear words, but I know at least one song had one. And my pastor was there. :-P

    anyone heard of Richard Cheese? He sings slow elevator music, but its hilarious cause its all modern rock songs.  like 'I did it all for the nooky' and 'i like big butts'.  Its really funny and we were thinking of playing it during the cocktail hour... but the swear words are not hidden at all... and theres no clean versions that we can find

    I LOVE Richard Cheese.  Stay away from any of his version of NIN.  Those are explicit lyrics.  I think you can get away with some of his stuff, but "I want to F* you like an animal,"...Probably not.

    I was worried about this too, but my DJ said most people don't even pay attention and don't worry about it. As long as it's not extreme you should be fine. Plus I dare someone to go yell at the bride and groom on their wedding day because of the music. (How would they even know you def. choose it.)

    I LOVE RICHARD CHEESE. LOVE.LOVE.LOVE. I've heard almost all of his songs and I think they are kid friendly.  And no one is really going to listen to the music during cocktail hour (hence why we opted for some Kenny G.. lol)  I would stay away from 'Rape Me' and 'Closer' and 'Me So Horny' hahah.

    I LOOOOVE Trent Resnor!  lol. It's going to be hard to have Richard Cheese and not have NiN...  but yeah- I guess we will have to go through his albulms and pick some of the better songs.  Do you think this is a good idea? I think the older people will just hear the background music and his nice voice. And the younger people might recognize the songs and think its pretty funny.  But we're having a pretty formal wedding... so I'm not sure if Richard Cheese would really fly...

    I agree with you, Sara.The younger people who know who he is will probably get a kick out of it and the older people won't notice the difference.  But definitely pick and choose songs! lol

    I think that if one person notices, all of your wedding guests will take note because of word of mouth.  It's something funny that people will totally laugh at and see if other people noticed.  As long as it's something that fits your personalities and you're okay with everyone realizing it, I would go with it!
