Anyone doing a special performance at their wedding?

Every wedding I've attended, there's always a surprise performance by someone in the wedding party. It could be a performance by the groom or bride (or both), solo or with members of the bridal party. The groomsmen dance is the most common but I've also seen one-take music videos, dance offs, karaoke battles etc. Maybe someone will sing you (or you sing) down the aisle?

Will you or someone from your party be doing something special as tribute to your wedding?

    I do Indian dancing as every wedding had 1 event full of dances from both sides of the families for an pre event. I came up with the dance moves using a song from a movie. I taught them all as my husband learned too.

    Nice! Did someone on your team come up with the dance on your own or was it from a particular movie?

    Our wedding had a Bollywood entrance which was rehearsed every Sunday at the salon of my husbands workplace with the wedding party except for one person. The practise went well and my husband learned the basics as he wouldn't have kept up with my speed. It was awesome and something unique as Indian weddings have the immediate families entering first before the couple.

    I’ve been to a few with performances. It was really entertaining. It was a dance performance by the wedding party. However, my fiancé and I are not doing any 😊

    It's definitely a know-yourself and know-your-crowd situation lol. I will say the examples I posted are the more "pro" looking ones. I've seen a few fun ones but I've definitely seen more than a few that went south.

    Can't say that we are the type who would do anything like that. If done right it could be a lot of fun however it could go south real quick too. Only once there was a dance number (the grooms nieces were in dance for many years) they did a dance for him and his new wife. It was nice

    When I was a groomsmen for my Best Man's wedding, we did the Backstreet Boys chair dance from As Long As You Love Me. Obviously nowhere near as good as the actual Backstreet Boys lol but we didn't take ourselves seriously and played it off like a bunch of goofs. We also only did one verse and chorus so we didn't overstay our welcome. It kicked off dinner entertainment like speeches and other games.

    Another groomsmen of mine made a video skit when he got married. He inserted himself into scenes from Lord of the Rings and made it about how he's looking for his "precious" to give to his wife. So it played like the fellowship was helping him look for his ring.

    I was at a wedding a few years back where the groom sang a love song to the bride while playing the ukulele during the reception. He's not a great singer but he's awesome at the ukulele and chose a short song that didn't stretch his vocal limits so it was sweet and fun to watch. Conversely, a bride at another wedding forced her bridesmaids to learn the Pitch Perfect number. They weren't singers or dancers, and it was very obviously that no one except the bride wanted to do it. In that instance, it felt like the bride just wanted more action in the spotlight with some Instagrammable moments rather than genuinely pay tribute to her relationship with her husband. After sitting through that, I can certainly see why some people would avoid this sort of thing.

    It sounds like you've been to some interesting weddings! What's the best one you've seen? Are you planning to do anything like that?

    I've never been to a wedding with a performance and it's not really my or my husband's thing so we won't be doing anything like this at our reception.
