Backflip goes badly for bridesmaid in wedding dance video

/ Source: TODAY

Elaborate dance routines and wild moves have gone from the rare wedding exception to an almost expected element of the reception (and in some cases, even the ceremony). But just because it's common, doesn't mean it's always a good idea.

Just take a look at what happened when one wedding duo tried to make a memorable entrance to the music.

It's started innocently enough, with groomsman and bridesmaid skipping along, side-by-side. But soon they went into individual routines. She hopped around a bit, while he went head over heels into a backflip — and right into her.

Ouch! Or rather, "Ooooohhhh!" as the DJ exclaimed.

That was just the first tumble the woman took. Watch the video to see what happened when he tried to help her get back on her feet.
