My FI is a leader of the music at my chuch and he is a great singer. I was toying with the idea of him singing a song during the ceremony, but I can’t see how it would be executed…
Where would he stand? Would it be weird if he left me to go to the mic and sing and then walk back over?
Does he have to sing/stare at me, or does he play to the people attending our wedding as well?
He is considering singing, though, he is worried he may get emotional.
How terrible would it be if he got choked up and couldnt keep singing?
Should I have our other singer/guitar fill in (perhaps even share some verses) in case he does in the middle of the song?
Im thinking of having the song be the music that we would have played right after we say our vows ,… if he doesnt sing it, we do have our guitarist to sing instead, so either way a song is being played.
In case you’re curious, the song is Hold You Up by Matthew west

I think its awesome when the groom sings…I was in a wedding a few years ago where the groom was a worship band leader and he suprised the bride and sang an Elvis song it was soo cute
…he also sang at the reception..which could be an option if the ceremony would be something too emotional…hope you find something that works!

@FMrs.Hancock2013: Thanks for the encouragement 🙂 Do you remember if he was by her when he was singing or if he took position somewhere else on the alter/staging area?

@ciaradal: during the ceremony he did do the whole gazing in her eyes sort of thing which i know can be aukward lol but at the reception he sang to her as well as sang to the audience. If your FH wanted to sing like somewhere off of center stage with the guitarist i think that would be ok…
I am a singer too and really want to sing at my wedding but I am having trouble figuring out how and when to sing…if i do it will most likely be at the reception lol hope i helped out!

My daughter surprised her guests by singing Ave Maria, standing at the back of the room, during the processional of the 4 grandmothers and the groom’s parents. My mother cired the whole way down the aisle. There was no singing during the ceremony; however, just as the newlyweds were turning to walk back down the aisle, her church choir members surprised her with a fantastic min-flash mob song.
