It’s exactly one month until I tie the knot. As a result, I’ve begun to slowly slip from blissful, ignorant confidence into “oh Jesus fuck this is actually happening” territory. Truth be told, things are going well, more or less – yesterday we finalized the choices for the tuxedos for the wedding party, for instance – but I’ve found that when it comes to choosing music for the reception, I’m more or less flailing in the dark.
In order to relieve some of my stress without grinding up a handful of Xanax and snorting it through a rolled up $2 bill, I’ve decided to instead turn to the Interwebs for aid. More specifically, I’m taking the easy way out by putting the question to all of you: what do you think we should put on the “Play/Do Not Play” list? As much as I’d love to tell the DJ to play nothing but AC/DC and Iron Maiden, something tells me the fiancée wouldn’t appreciate that, so I’m turning to all of you fine MTV viewers – or at least those of you that remember when the “M” in MTV used to stand for “Music.”
So let’s hear it: what do you have to recommend as far as things that absolutely should/shouldn’t be played at our wedding reception? For those of you who’ve been invited, here’s your chance to make sure you don’t end up hearing something you can’t fucking stand, and for everyone else – those of you who the fiancée and I wish we could invite, if we had an infinite budget – this is our way of making sure that you’re still involved, even though we can’t afford to invite everyone we want to.
Some things you should know right now is that if any of you suggest the Time Warp, the Chicken Dance, or the Electric Slide, I’m going to rescind your invitation. In fact, I’ll return it via bag of flaming dog poop on your front step – and you know this threat is legit, because I’ve got your addresses.
So what would you want – or don’t want – to hear if you were getting married in a month from now?
