Groom’s Impressive Wedding Day Dance is Viral Hit

Posted September 3, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ Leave a Comment!

Today we’re sharing this entertaining, well-choreographed surprise wedding dance from the groomsmen to the bride. I’ve seen my share of videos in the past, but this wedding dance really stole my 90’s (and early 00’s) heart: Backstreet Boys, Destiny’s Child, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z were a few of the popular song choices they selected. And, unlike other wedding dances of its kind, this is one of epic proportions: the groomsmen are well-dressed, lighting and sound are top notch, the bride is surprised (and elated), and it looks like the crew really practiced to get the steps just right. Plus, this video isn’t overly silly, dorky, cheesy, or serious. Wait until you see what the groom does at the end! Sidebar: the
