Surely you've seen those YouTube videos of brides, grooms and wedding parties surprising their guests with choreographed dances at wedding receptions. I get a huge kick out of those videos, and to be totally honest I've always fantasized of doing this for my wedding, if/when I get married, so the TLC show Rock the Reception is fast becoming one of my favorite things in the world.
The half-hour show follows couples as they learn a choreographed dance to a song of their choosing and then surprise their guests with it at their wedding receptions. With the exception of some worrisome feuds between some of the engaged couples, it's all so completely feel-good, it actually makes me cry. Why? I can't explain it. But every time I see this show, I'm fine up until the moment the music changes and the surprise dance starts and we see the guests' confusion turn to glee (or stay at confusion). And then, for some crazy reason, I'm crying and smiling at the same time. This ever happen to you? It's weird. I can't help it.
So, I know what I'll be
watching in real time TiVoing so I can watch after attending all my hip parties tonight. Have you seen this show? What do you think? To check out a video of one of the most impressive dances, read more.
