The other day our little granddaughter who's been at a couple of wedding receptions lately and danced up a storm, said and did the cutest thing when her grandpa got home. She said "Aprize!" started dancing around the room and said, "it's a dance party!" What a little card! - Recently I've noticed how fun wedding receptions are anymore. Used to be they played polkas and old, what I'd call fuddy dud music. So you stayed for a while, then went on home or somewhere else, but nowadays it's rock and roll! Course maybe that IS fuddy dud music now, and I'm just one of the fuddy duds! I did notice I didn't know all the music at the latest wedding reception I was at, but it was still fun to dance to. - What do you think? Are weddings and the receptions more fun then they used to be? Or are you of a culture where they've always been fun? or never fun?

I think when we are young we are going to older folks wedding. Now you are going to more people's wedding that are your age. I can only remember going to one wedding and reception and they had more contemporary music playing. Just depends on the people getting married I would think.

That's true! and nowadays the younger people's music is still for a large part the mucic of my generation.. I was thinking my own generation played the traditional wedding type music to please the parents, etc, but now I'm thinking perhaps it's still being done, instead of playing a lot of rap or hiphop they play a lot of classic rock..

That sounds right. Unless the kids are really into rap and hiphop.

I love weddings! But I know some couples who cohabit for years without actually 'tying the knot'.. Sometimes it's more expensive to marry.. marriage penalties and all..

can't say I'm "co-habiting" since that implies that I'm doing things married people do, and I'm not... just sharing a house with a couple of other women because the cost of living is so high.

I have been to only one wedding reception in my life but it was a fuddy duddy, as you said. The couple were following traditions to please their parents instead of having a wedding and reception that they themselves would have fun with. I'm glad things are changing! After all, it's a very special day and should be full of memories that bring smiles, not grimaces. Music is an important part of celebrations and should be an expression of the newly married couple. I'm happy to hear about this trend!
