I’ve seen the posts about first dance and father-daughter dance songs that aren’t overdone and cheesy. But there’s another tune or two that haven’t been addressed yet… The overdone “party songs” that everyone knows, and that people (who may or may not be “too cool” for stuff, like myself) will always dance and sing along to. I hate them. So I’m on the hunt: What are some well-known, yet not-so-cheesy-and-“standard” songs that I can sub in for the usual wedding tunes?
WEDDING TIP OF THE DAY: Save the parent dances for the very end of the dinner hour. It’s an awesome way to bring everyone’s attention from their plates over to the dance floor.
Tash and Jules’ Tasmanian wedding at Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm was a bit backwards, in the best sense: the reception came before the ceremony! And of course, the party continued after the ceremony, so it was like two parties in one (with two purple dresses, no less!). Tash sang a sweet song to Jules at the reception: “Hey Jude” became “Hey Jules,” and EVERYONE joined in, including the venue crew. Let’s just let Tash herself explain how that felt. OH, and wait until you get a load of the LEGO cake.
This couple transmogrified their wedding into an ultimate Calvin and Hobbes dance party. Everything from the stationery to the cake toppers had the handwriting look of a stuffed tiger and his favorite boy. You’re gonna love the ring bearer’s striped shirt and the way he hugs his tiger friend in these pictures. Grab your wagon and let’s go look!
