Fiancée thinks I’m crazy for wanting the theme tune to the movie Delta Force played at our wedding. Technically it’d be after we leave the ceremony (as guests are also leaving). It’s a movie that meant a lot to me growing up, I love Chuck Norris and the song just sounds kick ass. How do I convince her that this day is meant to be for both of us?

My now-husband processed in to the UEFA Champions league theme song. It was played by a string trio and most people had no idea what it was but it sounded great. It meant a lot to him and made a special moment for him and his friends who knew what it was. As an alternative maybe you could have it played during the pre-ceremony music/time guests are arriving, the bride will be preoccupied waiting for everything to start!

You my friend are hilarious. Stick to your guns. It’s one song as people are leaving? It’s 4 minutes that no one but you and a couple other awesome individuals will even notice; why would she create a stink over that??? If so, you have to reevaluate everything. I was almost married once and she wouldn’t let me have any control over the wedding (and even removed several of my close friends from the guest list without telling me to make room for her parents friends). Needless to say we never got married. If she can’t be flexible than good luck with her forever

I always wanted The Godfather theme on my wedding. Then I realized formal weddings were dumb and I would better off using that money to travel. Was lucky enough that my SO also thinks like this and in about two years we went to Patagonia, Scotland, France and Netherlands. We don’t even wear rings (also saved money on that)

Congrats on that!!! If you ever do go the rings path, know its very possible not to spend $20k on rare metals with bad environmental impact to boot. I have a tungsten carbide ring with wood inlay that was less than $50. Plenty of options for women today outside of diamonds as well

Tell her it’s that or for you to walk down the aisle before her to The Emperor’s theme from Star Wars, I think you’d get what you want.

M1 that’s not the case at all. My wedding was a blast. I’m not saying you can’t enjoy it, I’m just saying it’s an event FOR your guests. That is a very literal fact. Sorry you’re so emotionally triggered by that.

This would be a deal breaker for me.

Maybe compromise on the theme to Walker Texas Ranger or Lone Wolf McQuade?

But does the song mean anything to her? Since this day is meant to be for both of you…..

You two seem to have so much in common!

My partner does stupid shit and would totally do something like this. Doesn’t mean you don’t have a lot in common, just means they have a disagreement and need to work through it.

Maybe give her the option of playing it as everyone is leaving or for your first dance. My guess is you get what you want

Husband and I entered our reception to the theme song from Superman (and back down the aisle after the I-do’s to Queen’s You’re My Best Friend). It makes the memories of that day all the more special that we chose what was important to us, not what was expected or norm. Your guests will get to see a little piece of you and remember that forever!

It’s reasonable, assuming she probably picked everything else.

Is there a string quartet version of the song? My husband wanted to play Polly by Nirvana at our wedding and the lyrics are not the best. We found a cover by Vitamin String Quartet and it was really pretty!
