What I'm TiVoing Tonight: Rock the Reception

What I'm TiVoing Tonight: Rock the Reception

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,

I was in a wedding where we did a dance for RTR! It was fun. We worked with Chantal Robson and we had a blast! I think our epi will run in Sept...we might even be the season finale.

I would watch the show, but I'd never do a choreographed dance at my wedding. I think it's kind of silly and self-indulgent and "look at me! look at me!" And while, yes, everyone will be looking at us during my first dance with my fiance - husband! - it will be more about sharing the moment with him than about putting on a show for our guests. I'd rather forget that anyone is there watching, actually. But I can see why some people would do this. It's just not my personality - or my fiance's.

Ha ha. My husband and I joked about doing a Bollywood piece with the wedding party for our wedding and love folks that have fun with the idea. I haven't seen this show yet but my guy has been wanting to, we just never catch it.

my fiance and i always joke that we're going to learn how to do the dance at the end of 'Dirty Dancing' so we can do that as our first dance at our wedding - so i can respect the point of this show. i've seen parts of episodes -but i've never watched the whole thing. i might have to start tuning in again though ....
