When my eldest daughter got married, she said absolutely no.. without a doubt no, Shania Twain, Feel Like a Woman.. what does he play, you got it Shania Twain, Feel Like a Woman... I thought my daughter was going to rip his eyes out, but the place went wild and everyone was dancing. Go figure..and yet the ones that the family had picked up to be played, he did not play. Needless to say, we would never recommend this DJ or his company....

PS, the invitations, the wording, well I am sitting here sniffling.. beautiful, absolutely beautiful.
Thank you very much!

Your story reminds me of my sister's wedding. She lives in Odessa, Texas. She and her husband, Tosh, are adamant Texas fans. And for those of you who follow such things, you might know that Texas has a MAJOR rivalry with OU. One of Tosh's cousins went to OU and acting out the rivalry is this thing they do. It's really annoying, and they lilke to play Texas/OU themed practical jokes on each other. So when she walked up to me at the wedding (I was an usher) and I asked "Bride's Side or Groom's Side?" She said "I'm on the OU side". I told her she was in the wrong place, as this was a wedding not a football game. She didn't think I was funny and walked past me towards the groom's side. So at the reception, all of a sudden the music switches to some marching band music and she's on the dance floor waving her arms around like she thinks she's conducting the band. It was the OU fight song. My sister hiked up that big poofy wedding dress marched over to the DJ with her eyes shooting fire and I swear you could here the needle being ripped of the vinyl (even though I knew it was a CD, I still heard that noise ). And from across the stunned silence of the room you could hear my sister loudly saying, "I don't care if she asked for it, I'm the one who's paying you!" The whole room erupted into laughter (turns out the grooms family pretty much thinks that cousin is and obnoxious b****, too.) She then spent the rest of the evening manhunting and trying to "meet someone" because "weddings are a great place to hook up". Yeah, can you believe it? Such a catch was still single! Truly a classy, classy act.

Okay, I finally figured out how to capture the picture off of the "Create your own" section of the website where we ordered these!

So here's the picture of our favors/centerpieces.


These favors are called "wanderfuls" They're clear plastic wands filled with candy (we'll either do sliver jordan almonds or Hershey's kisses) and topped with a metallic pom-pom. The Wanderfuls are then placed into a holder which creates the centerpiece "bouquet".

We thought they were very cool, will work well with the decor and lighting of the Atlantic Dance Hall, and were MUCH cheaper than doing floral centerpieces and individual favors.

We are currently gathering songs as options for the first dance. So far, I think the list is like 12 songs long. We'll need to sit down and listen to them all together and decide. That's what we did with my mom, while she was here. We listened to several songs and as a group decided which song to use for the mother/son(s) dance. It came down to "Candle on the Water" from Pete's Dragon, "Baby Mine" from Dumbo (the Jim Brickman/Carrie Underwood version) and "You'll Be in My Heart"from Tarzan. We decided on "You'll Be in My Heart", but we're now trying to figure out which version (Phil Collins singing, or the Broadway Cast Album version).

We know that we want them playing "Welcome" by Blind Boys of Alabama from Brother Bear as we're introduced, and "Promise" by Kelley Coffey (the song they play after the end of Illuminations at Epcot) for the last dance.

For our "big dance", we're looking for something romantic, sung by a male voice (or two) that doesn't mention a female in the lyrics. I don't think we'll have any problems choosing from the group we've got.

Then the battle royale begins! Who's going to lead! (Actually, we've been battling this one for over a year, and no end in sight)

Some people are in your life to provide "moral support". I'm here to provide "Immoral Support". It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it!

Oh, but Lindsay and Paris? EW! I wouldn't go anywhere near them! I have my standards!

Not doing tuxes. We'll be in matching black suits. My tie is "Superman Blue", and Scott's is more of an ice blue or sky blue color. This is fairly typical for Scott and me. We both gravitate toward shades of blue, but Scott is usually in the softer, lighter end of the spectrum (which sets off his blue eyes BEAUTIFULLY) while I end up in the royal, cobalt, navy end of things. And since I've been a Superman collector since I was 8, finding a tie in that exact shade was perfect. Since we didn't want to stress on having to match any colors exactly, we just told people that we're doing "shades of blue" in terms of color palate.

We're not dictating what anyone else wears. We want them to be comfortable and look like themselves. Not too formal, but kind of dressy. It's going to be September in Orlando, for pete's sake. We didn't want them sweating into a bunch of very well dressed puddles.

Well I'm coming out ahead of Lindsay and Paris - that's good.
But - What is this "dirty job"? Special equipment needed?

The centerpieces are wicked! What an unexpected touch.

I really like the sounds of the suits too. It is still seriously hot in September. You are really nice to consider your guest!

At the Disney wedding I attended, there was a point during the dinner where the lights dimmed and the servers (all in black suits with white shirts) entered with glass (ice) slippers on their trays (with blue lights embedded) that had sorbet on the "toe" of the slipper. What a stunning presentation and great entertainment for the guests. Oh, the music they entered to, was "Be Our Guest."

I know you are having a buffet, but are you planning on any sort of dramatic moment like that?

I love the music choices. Do you mind my asking what the list for the first dance includes? (Just nosey, but I'm mushy too. I'm loving the sensitivity in your ceremony).

... And to be thrown at you on your departure?
Rice?
Rose petals?
Bubbles?

The book?
Accusations?
