And that we did. After the final dances of the evening had played out and our guests were gathering their things to leave, we had one final surprise for them, and one last opportunity for them to wish us well as we prepared to head off on our Hawaiian honeymoon adventure. At the DJ’s announcement, best man Brian and maid of honor Kellie slipped colorful leis over our heads, and the remaining guests gathered around as we danced to Elvis’ “Blue Hawaii” with our engagement slideshow playing onscreen in the background.
Since our photographer and videographer had already left for the night, our guests were kind enough to snap a couple shots of us sharing these final moments of our party, and to then wish us “bon voyage” as we at last headed out the door. Though there was no shower of streamers or glow of fireworks, plus no long tunnel of guests to run through, I couldn’t have been happier with the way this ending worked out.
What are your plans for a grand exit or special last dance?
