The Show

One of the most exciting parts of our wedding planning is the show! Instead of a DJ and dancing, we're going to put on a variety show after dinner. Our venue is perfectly suited for this, with a large stage trimmed with yellow velvet curtains.

So far, we have a few good acts lined up. Our friends Mike (piano) and Myla (voice) have serious musical talent and have agreed to play. Rob's ukulele is getting better every day. Matt and Peter play guitar. Seth plays banjo. Jean and I are rehearsing a circa-1954 dance routine.

I just need to find a few more people with hidden talents who want to participate! The internet is a great place to find inspiration for this sort of thing. In particular:
If only I could find someone who tap dances or has an exceptionally well-trained poodle! Uh, oh. Do you think recruiting friends to perform at the wedding automatically qualify me as a bridezilla?

I agree, the idea is phenomenal.

If I lived in the area, I'd gladly volunteer to lip-synch the entire Broadway soundtrack of Les Miserables. Perfect wedding tunes.
