That was pretty dam cool. Went to a wedding where the couple got out and strutted their stuff (not like this vid though). Go for it!


Me, well - I've always been quite "different" and my "wedding" song was from the Brain Salad Surgery album from Emerson, Lake & Palmer - "still you turn me on". It soooooooooo, uh, ooooooo confused my new inlaws (now ex inlaws of course) - that his mother talked to me about that wedding dance song at least 4 times if not more that evening - and more in the weeks thereafter. "Don't wedding dance songs have the words "I love you" in them or something?, I don't understand - what was that and why is there a skull on the album??".

ELP was awesome though.

Sounds more like the wedding night video. The question is, would you use the original version of the song, or the Richard Cheese version?

It was ok, but my friend's was better (IMO). Her's was to Rock Lobster, and she did the "dead cockroach" on the dance floor in the wedding dress.
Very Cool.

Nah... it's about the tackiness of the whole Vegas/Elvis thing.

Though, if they have a ready made package of that, that might be too easy or boring and we'll have to come up with something else.

Sure they do! In fact I had the wedding I had always wanted - ala "Gone with the Wind", all my dresses were rented - including mine - all 6 tier hooped gowns, all different - and with pantaloons on underneath

Just loaded some pic as some people wanted to see them (course the marriage is long over, but still pretty pics). I've always been a tad different from other people ...

My wife and I always joke that if we ever renew our vows we'll walk down the aisle to the Final Countdown.
