Reet Petite

IMG_0075

As you know, we are getting married on July 3rd (Woooooop) and we can’t wait to see you there!!

What you probably all know is, we have invited the team from Music Wedding Videos to film everyone enjoying the day, singing, dancing and generally having a great time to ‘Reet Petite’ by Jackie Wilson.

Here is the song we’ve chosen for you to get familiar with …

How this works is, the guys will be equipped with printed lyrics and speakers on the day; they’ll be looking for volunteers to sing along to a couple of lines from the track on camera. They’ll then turn the footage into a music video of the wedding day. Don’t worry too much about learning all the words as we mentioned they’ll have some printed on the day and after playing a short section of the song a couple of times you’ll soon pick it up.

You’ll have a few go’s at getting it right, and they’re pretty good at editing to make you look awesome. Your singing voice doesn’t matter either because they’re not going to use the audio – the real song will be played over the video footage of you singing along.

The lyrics are included at the bottom of the page

How up for it are you?

Mad for it!

OK, so you fancy yourself as a bit of a performer or a pop-star in another life?

Here’s what you can do:

  • Watch the video
  • Learn the lyrics
  • Practice in front of the mirror
  • Choreograph a dance routine
  • Get together with some like-minded guests to do something as a group

We are looking for people to (willingly) come forward beforehand to be given specific lines to learn, and we will then forward everyone their own lyrics to perfect 🙂 If any of you do want to perform something special, please let us know or contact the MWV guys at info@musicweddingvideos.com so they can plan it into the shoot.

Happy to get involved on the day

Here’s what we recommend:

  • Watch the video
  • Try to learn at least one or two lines from the song
  • Grab the MWV guys on the day and let them know you want to get involved

A little bit camera-shy

We realise some people either don’t feel super comfortable in front of cameras, especially video cameras. Don’t worry – the MWV guys are very sensitive to this and won’t force you to get involved if you don’t feel comfortable. But if it’s not too painful, we do hope you can at least give us a smile or a wave so that we can remember you on our special video. And remember – if it’s your singing voice you’re worried about, they don’t actually use that in the final video – you’re just miming along to the real song. Here’s what we recommend:

  • Don’t worry too much about learning the lyrics
  • On the day, see if you’re in the right mood. If not, just let the MWV guys know if you’d prefer to just be an ‘extra’ without performing, or if you don’t want to be in the video at all.

We think this is a really fun way to record and re-live our big day for years to come and hope you’ll all get involved in some way.

Still not sure how this works?

Here are a couple of examples of a finished video from previous weddings once they have been edited and effects have been put on…

Hayley and Ian – That Vibe

Sam and Emma – Happy

Claire and Kev – Uptown Funk

 

So……..

  • Glamorous couple – Check
  • Beautiful Location – Check
  • Awesome dancing and singing – that’s where you come in

Let’s make this a wedding video to remember!

 

Love

Natalie and Connor

PPS Here’s those lyrics!

Well, look there, look there, look there, look there, ooh, wee
Look there, look there, look there, ooh wee
Ooh, ahh, ooh, ahh, ooh, wee

Well, she’s so fine, fine, fine, she’s so fine, fine
She’s so fine, she’s so fine, fine, fine
She’s really sweet, the finest girl you ever wanna meet

Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh
Reet petite, the finest girl
You ever wanna meet

Well, have you ever seen a girl for whom your soul you’d give
For who you’d fight for, die for, pray to God to live?
‘Cause she’s so fine, she’s so fine
She’s really sweet, the finest girl you ever wanna meet

Well, she really fills her clothes from head to toe
I want the world to know I love her, love her so
She’s all right, she’s all right
She’s all right, she loves me day and night

Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh
Reet petite, the finest girl
You ever wanna meet, ohh

Well, she’s like honey from a bee, like peaches from a tree
I love her, need her, she means so much to me
She’s all right, she’s got what it takes
She’s got what it takes and with me she really rates

Well, ohh, now, she’s my cutie, my tutti frutti
My heart, my love, my bathing beauty
She’s all right, she’s got just what it takes
She’s got what it takes and with me she really rates

Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh
Reet petite, the finest girl
You ever wanna meet

Reet petite, the finest girl
You ever wanna meet
Reet petite, the finest girl
You ever wanna meet
