Photographer Julia Boggio copied the big number from one of her favorite movies for her first dance with groom James Derbyshire, a British filmmaker. The video, on YouTube, has been viewed more than a million times, boosting their careers and leading to talk of book and TV deals. Says James: "It was nerve-racking, but I really enjoyed doing it for Julia."

"Basically it was a dare," says Brian Lundmark, who wed Sandy Sendelbach in Oklahoma last August. "Sandy planned the wedding. My thing was to get the dance ready." He made slowed-down copies of the Michael Jackson video for the entire wedding party, who practiced for over a month.
Groom Scott Dai and three pals practiced OK Go's "A Million Ways" dance for eight weeks to surprise bride Kathryn at their Pittsburgh wedding last summer. "I wanted to have a wedding reception no one would forget," he says.
