At our wedding I pulled my family aside to tell them that if they believe for a second that Vince and I are mature adults, then they would soon be disappointed.
Why? Because of our awesomely immature song selections!
To begin with, there was the first dance…
Vince and I don’t have a song and we don’t know how to really dance. So instead of picking something meaningless and swaying back and forth for 4 minutes, we decided to re-enact the Jack Rabbit Slim Twist Contest scene from Pulp Fiction.
I figured most of my friends would recognize the song but I didn’t expect cheering and applause to come from almost the entire room.
I won’t lie, I was super nervous. And Vince and I got out of synch for a few minutes, he even forgot a part of our little choreography. But look at him getting down. How could I have thought for a second that we couldn’t pull this off?
And then there was the garter toss….
We met our DJ, the most amazing and badass of all Asheville wedding DJ’s I might add, Mr. Mitch Fortune, three days before our wedding and we had no ‘garter toss’ song.
We were describing to him how completely silly we are and Vince kept asking if he could work in the Mario Brothers theme song, when Mitch suggested we have it for our garter toss.
So… Vince went up under my dress, got my garter, and tossed it to his boys to the Mario Brother’s Level Two theme song.
You know… this one:
And Vince’s little brother, Joey, caught it!
We followed the garter toss with the cake cutting.
Just like the garter, we had no idea what to use as a song. Mitch, being the awesome DJ that he is and reading us so well, suggested this song:
So yeah. We cut our cake to The Peanut Butter Jelly Song. And it was amazeballs. 🙂
And finally, to kick off the official dance party for the evening, we had our awesome DJ pull everyone out onto the dance floor in the most serious and somber voice, and played this:
And then we partied like the ceiling could not hold us.
Overall, our wedding was silly and our music selection was super immature, but it was so totally and completely “us” that every second felt right and every one there had a blast. I can’t think of one thing I would change – especially the music!
