Default Re: Everlong Live As A Wedding Closer

I think it would be a nice little homage since the band usually ends with Everlong at concerts and the live version I have in mind is a bit more bombastic than the original or acoustic versions.

The question here is would it be weird to do a live version of any song at a wedding? I've never heard of anyone doing one, so it would be original at least. I'm not sure if the DJ company has any policies against it, which I'll have to check. My fiance is okay with the live version, which in my mind was a huge win

Good idea? Bad idea? Thoughts?
Coincidence! We did the same thing when we got married. As we walked down the aisle after getting married we played Everlong from the chorus, and our first dance was 'This Will Be Our Year' by Foos but then went into 'Praise You' by Fatboy slim and we'd choreographed a comedy dance.

It's your day, do what you want!
