When I last left you with our wedding recaps, our bridal party and parents had just been announced into our reception. Our DJ kept playing our entrance song, the Glee version of “Raise Your Glass.” Feel free to click below to play along.
While we were waiting to be announced, I could just feel all the energy and the love from the crowd. I turned to Mr. A and said let’s just dance when we get out there. We hadn’t made a plan beforehand about what we would do when we were announced. We knew that we were going to get right into our first dance song once we got out there but beyond that we hadn’t given it any thought.
With the music raging and our guests cheering along, Mr. A thought it would be the perfect plan. We leaned in for one last kiss.
Mr. A threw his jacket to his best man and it was time to get our groove thing on.
I can tell you that our guests had a complete ball with it. Most of them have never really seen us dance or let loose. Their response was so loud and overwhelming you couldn’t help but smile. I’ve seriously never felt so alive.
Just as quickly as our entrance began, it was over (just like everything else in weddings). I’m so glad that we made the last minute call to just break out dancing. I really think it set the perfect fun party tone for the night that lay ahead. So even if your shy or don’t like the spotlight, trust me when I say that the energy of a crowd can certainly surge you into something you normally wouldn’t do. Feeling that kind of love from the people you care for the most has a way of taking over your spirit. And of course, everyone still laughs about Mr. A throwing his jacket off. I crack up every time I see it in film.
