    I think it’s a little awkward and four minutes is way too long to walk down the aisle. I would lose interest after 30 seconds.

    I saw this video a few months ago….to be honest, I thought it was kinda weird lol. To each their own though. FI and I are thinking of doing a duet at our reception, only because music brought us together (we met at high school band camp) and we do open mic all the time together.  None of our family have heard us sing together and we wanna wow people lol…..little narcissistic but whatevs lol

    nerdybee:  I went to my friend’s wedding where the bride is an opera singer. She sang to him as a performance/little side show during the dinner after the ceremony and it was just so emotional and it was my first time hearing her in real life… the groom was holding her hand and they were gazing at each other… and I was moved to tears!


    However if she’d sung as she was walking down the aisle I probably would have giggled awkwardly..

    Ugh so embarrassing. The wedding should be about BOTH of them, not her singing abilities. If she wanted to sing it should have been at the ceremong if anything. so awkward

    I’ve seen a lot of these and this is definitely one of the best. At least the girl could actually sing. Still super corny though. The thing is, a lot of people think that they can sing but really they can’t. Like, at all. Then it’s just embarassing… and hilarious.

    nerdybee:  Wowwwww!  That was beautiful.  Only if I could sing…only if I could sing, but since I can’t the only person who will be singing as I walk down the aisle will be ~The Whispers, ‘I’m Going to Make You My Wife’

    Her voice is lovely, but i think this is something better saved for the reception. It just seems out of place and a little narcissistic. It would be really tragic if she couldn’t sing, but as it is it is just marginally embarassing to watch and goes on too long.

    Not for me, and to be honest I would feel really awkward if I was at a wedding and this went down. That’s probably because it’s just really not something that would be done in my circle. My cousin Kim sang at her wedding to her new husband – but at the reception, and it was lovely. I cannot imagine her singing down the aisle.

    My daughter (2013) sang “Ave Maria” as the 4 grandmothers and parents of the groom’s processional song. My mother cried her eyes out, since it was a secret for the grandmothers. (She sang her 1st professionally engagement at age 12). She was behind a half open door, in the back of the ceremony room, so I doubt that the majority of the guests knew who was singing.

    For my other daughter (2014), her FH has been rapping for years, and we fully expect him to deliver his vows that way. It’s his personal style, but will probably be over in less than a minute. To each his own …

    Noooooo, just no. I would be so embarrassed for her even if she was the greatest singer in the world. It’s just plain awkward.

    Narcissistic and embarassing, I don’t care how good a voice she has. I think a serenade to the groom at the reception can be really sweet (again, only if the bride is a great singer) but singing down the aisle is just all-round awkward.
