All our guests made their way from our incredible cocktail hour into the gorgeous reception space and were seated. The bridal party was lined up outside the reception space behind the white curtains and waited for their cue to enter the party!
When Mr. Ly and I were deciding what our bridal party would walk in to, we knew we wanted it to be fun and have a lot of our own personality to it. Before we started dating, I had maybe seen one or two viral videos on YouTube. For the first few months of our relationship, Mr. Ly would send me “must-see” viral videos that I had missed throughout the years, and to this day, he’s still finding them every once in a while. We decided our bridal party would walk in to a mix of our favorite viral video songs/auto-tune remixes.
My parents and Mr. Ly’s parents entered first. My dad LOVED the “Numa Numa” song, and while this was one video I actually saw before my relationship with Mr. Ly, we thought it was a perfect fit.

For our bridal party we did a mix of Antoine Dodson’s The Bed Intruder Remix, the cat playing piano, and Sweet Brown’s Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That. You can listen to our DJ’s remix of these songs below:

Our bridal party gathered after their entrance, waiting for us to make our way in!
We didn’t make it through the whole mix, I don’t think. And most of it was underneath the DJ’s introductions. It may seem like an unconventional choice to be the first songs played, but it was only a brief part of our reception. Yes, a lot of the adults at the reception had no idea what the songs were, but our bridal party had a lot of laughs during the entrances; it was just a really fun way to kick off our party!
