my Maid/Matron of Honor (who i know i complain about but DO love! lol) has a gorgeous voice and I asked her to sing during our ceremony – before our vows. she will be singing “Feels Like Home” by Chantal Kreviazuk – here are the lyrics:
which I think just totally embodies how I feel about my husband:
“If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I’ve been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you’ve done”
I love this song.
what are you having sung? who’s singing it?

So funny! We are actually having my cousin sing this song at our ceremony!
We are having 2 other singers during the ceremony as well. Fiance is from a very musical family, so you know how that goes 🙂

A friend of mine is an accomplished musician and he agreed to sing for the ceremony. He is singing Stevie Wonder’s “ribbon in the sky” for the entrance of the bridal party. Insert tears here. 🙂

We have an AMAZING soloist from the church who will be singing three songs during the ceremony:
How Great Thou Art (in between the two scripture readings)
The Gift of Love – Hopson (for the lighting of the Unity Candle)
The Lord’s Prayer – Malotte (after exchanging the rings)
He’ll also probably sing a couple of songs during the prelude.

I would love to have someone sing for us, but the truth is, my standards are too high. Though I am terribly out of practice, I was a music major for a time and took voice lessons for years, and, I’ll admit it, I am secretly kind of snotty about it. I NEVER show people up in person, and I am always really nice about it, but if I don’t like their voices better then my own, I would not ask them to sing at my wedding. (And for the record, I was a wedding singer in high school!) There are 3 people I can think of whom I would trust to sing at my wedding, but I have fallen out of contact with them, and honestly, while I know a lot of people with pretty voices, I don’t know anyone who is that good anymore.
If it wouldn’t be totally awkward, though, in my little fantasy land, I have Miss M, my third grade teacher, sing an Irish Blessing (May the Lord always bless you and keep you; may his face always shine upon you….) She plays piano and guitar, and she is the reason I got into music. I love her voice so much, and I always wanted to be like her. But I haven’t seen her in five years, so that’s not going to happen. I presently have no idea what, if anything, we’ll do for music.

Yes! My friend Kim is a fabulous singer and she sang “Such Great Heights” by the Postal Service at our ceremony. We didn’t know in advance what song she was going to sing, and I LOVE that song and would never have thought to use it in a wedding. It was perfect.

She’s gonna do a jazz version of it (you can look some up on youtube).
