I’m getting married. We have been engaged for just over a year and will be married in just under a year. When I first got the ring, I signed up for every online marriage/bride thing imaginable. I just didn’t know where to start. The Knot is less intrusive than a lot of other bloggy things, but also less helpful. Sometimes they have pictures of things that I like or want, but their tips are junk. They tend to be based on 100 year old etiquette (which sometimes I like, but hand calligraphing every invite is just silly), or on the crappy trends that all 20-somethings are after.
They recently sent out an article about “Best New Wedding Songs” or something. They were all terrible and could fit into 3 categories: 1.) Poorly written songs with ‘romantic’ lyrics, 2.) Songs that are topping the alt-rock charts, but will make a normie feel unique and quirky, 3.) Black Eyed Peas. And then, they all have these little tags of “who will like it,” and “when to play it.” Who will like it: The people we felt obligated to invite. When to play it: When I am out of the room.
My guy is doing all of the DJing at our wedding. From the moment I found that out, I had one song in mind that NEEDED to be played. That was the Lido Shuffle.
