Once the band got going, the dance floor was a pretty happening place.
We kind of took a risk with our band, because we had literally never heard them before. Plus, they got a new singer a few months before our wedding. But let me tell you, they ROCKED. The singer…she blew my mind. (And I’m going to be a music teacher. I listen to people sing all day, every day. She was incredible.)
The bridesmaids flooded the dance floor as soon as the first few notes of The Outfield’s “Your Love” kicked off the night.
It’s just an optical illusion, but doesn’t it look like bridesmaid Rachael is shoving Mr. Whale’s face??
It wasn’t long before the photobooth props started making their way to the dance floor…
I wish I could remember what song each of these photos went with. That way I might be able to figure out why I’m making my fierce face in this next one.
Based on the photographic evidence, it seems that many of our guests spent the evening having a few drinks and then making up their own strange dance moves.
Mustaches were involved in a lot of the moves…
Heart-shaped sunglasses go surprisingly well with mustaches.
Can you tell that bridesmaid Rachael was having a good time?
Occasionally the dancers actually looked like they knew what they were doing.
And of course, there eventually had to be a little dance off. (Why does the “circle” always form at weddings? It’s unavoidable!)
I think it’s safe to say that neither of us really “won” this dance off.
Apparently Mama Whale decided to take a break for a drink whilst in possession of the best photobooth prop.
Giant hand ftw.
I think you get the idea. 80s band + alcohol + props = inevitable silliness. Perfect. It’s exactly what I wanted.
Did the photobooth props make it to the dance floor at your wedding? At one point, I don’t think there were any props on the table, because they were all being worn!
