I'm all about couples injecting their personality into their wedding day with unique touches. In fact, I'm of the opinion that those special details are what can actually make a wedding memorable -- for the bride and groom themselves and their guests. Unfortunately, in an effort to make their wedding their own, some brides and grooms go WAY TOO FAR.
Case in point: A bride from Pekin, Illinois who stars in a viral video posted by her daughter on YouTube. The bride forwent any sort of Pachelbel or Wagner nonsense as she made her way down the aisle. Instead, she opted for ... Buckcherry's "Crazy Bitch." Yes. THAT "strip club anthem" from 2006, which was written about Paris Hilton's sex tape. Yuuuup.
Can you guess how a bride walks down the aisle to a track like that? No, probably not. It's something you've actually got to see to believe ...
HA, my favorite part by far is the poor dad in the front row who looks genuinely shocked and appalled and seems to be looking around for someone to commiserate with as he's attempting to shield his son from the bride's gratuitous bumping and grinding. Oof, I feel your pain, man. This is, in a word, HORRIFYING!
Worse still, though, were the comments that showed up on YouTube. People can be so cruel. The bride and her crowd enjoyed themselves -- a friend of the bride's shared on YouTube that following the bride's "display," the crowd enjoyed a "parade of Harleys to the reception" while donning "black sunglasses." And they didn't exactly hurt anyone (except maybe that little boy, who will be forever scarred by this experience) ...
No, seriously, so as much as this is NOT my cup of tea, and it's sort of embarrassing as an American/native Illinoisian, at least I can respect the bride's choice to do ... whatever that was that you just watched. As she put it in her response to the YouTube haters:
I am a 43 year old grandma who rocks out and enjoys life. Proud of me and my family so all that are out there ROCK ON
You go, you crazy b*tch!
What's your reaction to this, err, unconventional wedding march?
