19. Groom was very into techno. No DJ, so they had a Spotify playlist that was exclusively dance music. No one danced.
Someone hacked the laptop, started putting on 00s rock music – the Killers etc. Everyone was on the floor. Groom grabbed the laptop back (mid song), techno goes back on, everyone leaves dance floor.
It was awful.
Please for the love of God play decent music (or at least stuff other people might have heard of).
20. We went to a wedding for one of my wife’s old college friends. The wedding ceremony was nice, but the reception was pretty bad. We get seated at a table full of strangers, so that was awkward. Then came time for the dessert bar. We were all told there wasn’t going to be dinner, just desserts. So we all get in line for the deserts. There were all kinds of nice looking cakes, cookies, pies, etc, but once we got to the end of the table…suddenly a carving station. The poor cook was having to plate rib roast on top of plates full of deserts. Who planned to have the carving station at the end and not the beginning of the line? Once we got back to our table, we noticed there was no music to be heard, no DJ or band and no dance floor. Also the only thing to drink was water or iced tea. So sitting at a table with nothing to do but eat meat-soaked cakes was someone’s idea of a swell time. I later found out the church where the wedding and reception were held at was one of those that banned dancing because “it was of the Devil.” I seriously thought something like that only existed in Footloose, and I thought that was a dumb and unrealistic premise.
