I have two wedding "dilemmas" if you can call them that. Basically my opinion is differing a bit from my parents and it is making me anxious. The decision are up to the FI and I since we are paying for the particular things in question. I really want honest opinions here - I am stuck on these!
1 - Our entrance song. I have been saying for years, like before we were even engaged, that at my wedding I was walking out to Sir Mix-a-lot "Baby Got Back." I have a bit of a booty, my FI is an "ass man" and we just like the idea of doing something fun and different. We would really just walk out dancing normal - nothing inappropriate in terms of our movement. I mentioned the song to my mom and she didn't know it, but when she mentioned it to some of the younger girls at her work they were apparently really shocked. One said how she sang that when drunk at karaoke and that my mom should look up the lyrics online. So now I am all worried that I am somehow going to offend someone. What do you girls think? It should be noted that though our wedding consists of a full Catholic mass and traditional reception, it is certainly not all that formal.
2 - I saw this classic guitar player who sings in Italian and knows popular songs that are in English but are known for being Italian (like "That's Amore"). For a surpisingly reasonable fee, he will play entrance and exit music to my wedding, along with singing the Ava Maria in Italian for the flowers to Mary portion of the mass. He would perform for the entire cocktail hour and then sing 3 songs during dinner - one for the couple and two that are more popular so guests can sing along. I love, love, LOVE this idea. However, my parents and MOH seem to think he should strictly be at the rehearsal dinner and my FI doesn't seem intrigued at all. Everyone seems to think having him play during dinner at the reception, even if it's just 3 songs, is disruptive. I just can't see him at the rehearsal dinner, though reasonable it is still a chunk of money and I don't want to pay it just for 20 people to see him! Any ideas/suggestions?
Sorry this is so long! I had caffeine and it's late so I'm chatty haha. I am off work tomorrow so I am excited about that as well. Let me know what you think!
