Wedding Trend Alert!

Okay, so you know that I make it my mission to alert you to anything I find interesting.  Well, today's topic is something that is sure to be a wedding trend, Peeps!  I attended not one, but TWO, weddings last week, and something occurred at the second one that was truly amazing!

You see, the couple is very musically inclined and so talented, at that.  The bride is the lead singer of a band, and the groom is a wicked awesome drummer.  The bride's ENTIRE family can sing, as well.  Now you've all heard the traditional musical interludes during the reception, and this wedding delivered!  The bride sang "At Last" by Etta James to the groom, and the groom sang an original composition to the bride.  Now if you think that is amazing, wait until you hear this nifty little idea.

If you're a musically inclined couple, I would highly recommend featuring this trend in your big day.  Pieces of paper were distributed to the wedding guests at the reception.  On this piece of paper were the lyrics to, "I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends."  (Naturally, you could choose any song you wanted to.)  There were lyrics in black text and group lyrics in red text, and when it was time for the red text to happen, the entire group of reception guests joined in to sing along.  It was a really cool bonding experience, and it allowed the guests to genuinely feel included in the day!  It was also a great chance to hold on to your friends and sing at the top of your lungs, and really, who doesn't love that?  Everyone had such a blast, and even the little grandmothers were saying how unique this experience was, and they were laughing and smiling.

I will definitely count this as one of the most unique and fun experiences I've had at a wedding.  Any that you would like to share with me?

Until next time,
