Mr. Lab and I finished our private meal and gave the DOC the go-ahead to move guests into the ballroom. We snuck back out the side door and waited until the parlour cleared before sneaking back in for introductions.
Now, let me tell you about our wedding party (aka our best friends). But I’m going to do that using songs.
If you can remember way back to this post, I used a newsletter to ask our groomsmen and bridesmaids to pick out songs that summed up their personalities. Our baseball-style line up came together and one-by-one we were introduced.
Our best man Don got things started with a dramatic, double-fisting entrance:
Carl Orff Carmina Burana Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi O Fortuna
Skip to 1:25 to get the full effect!
Our matron of honor, Amanda, followed Don with a fun take on her favorite pastime: playing poker:
Poker Face by Lady GaGa
I love that the girls were already putting the “sole mates” to use!
Who’s next? Is it a bird? A plane? No, it’s just Super Jay!
Superman Theme Song
His wife and my new sister-in-law, Leslie, showed off some leg when she came in:
Starstruck by 3oh3
Trey, the same guy who posed backward for his mug shot, tried to make a smooth entrance but got tripped up on the door ledge. He just laughed it off like he meant to do it:
Jambi by Tool
Brittany, who I joke is my sister from another mister, got down with a choreographed dance:
Diva by Beyonce
Like Trey, Jimmy tried to play it smooth. And also like Trey, he tripped on the door ledge (even after laughing when Trey tripped!)
The Joker by the Steve Miller Band
Jimmy’s wife, Brooke, unlike the boys, really did make a smooth entrance:
Super Massive Black Hole by Muse
Then my little brother, Phillip, got crunk:
All The Way Turned Up by Travis Porter
And Ashley got a little bossy:
I’m Bossy by Kelis
Finally, it was our turn. But wait! What’s that I hear?
Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley
Doing my best Rick Astley shuffle. Mr. Lab was supposed to be doing the same but bailed and left me looking like an idiot. Way to support your new wife!
Did my wedding guests just get Rick Roll’d? Why yes, yes they did.
After the introduction we went straight into our first dance.
Better Together by Jack Johnson
Yes, we just did the awkward middle school sway as our wedding party looked on. Although I used to be a member of a dance company, Mr. Lab just isn’t coordinated enough to attempt the awesome choreographed first dances…
…but our first dance was perfect just the way it was.
Will you introduce your wedding party in a special way?
