Well it’s going to be a little hard to picutre how “far away” he really is for the guitar to be out of the way, but either way i think it’s a great idea and glad you guys are still following through. I agree, he should not serenade you (maybe if it was the reception then yes). My vote’s for him to sing to everyone and you, it’s not like musicians stay in one place, I’d like to think he would turn and look at you, and then turn back… But I think he should stand “out of the way” and perhaps that means his back is to you but it’s only for a song? Better than you sitting and feeling awkward getting serenaded. My two cents! Good luck 🙂

SKTaylor:  My husband (who is a choir teacher and also responsible for most of our music) sang a special song (technically to me) at our wedding. It was very tastefully done, and I had countless guests raving about it throughout the night. We also sang a duet, and it was one of the personal touches to our ceremony that people appreciated the most.

He did stand up there with me, but he sang out to everyone. I don’t know if you are having a pastor or if this is in a church (sorry if I missed where you said it), but typically the pastor can help guide you on where to put the songs. We sang our son before our vows. After the vows and all of that is where he sang his piece of music. Depending on the song, it could fit at either place. It’s hard not knowing the order of the ceremony, but I would put it before or after the vows (after the greeting and prayer if you have one, but before the rings or unity canlde if you’re having anything like that). I would also suggest he sing out to the crowd and you. I assume you will be watching him, so I don’t think it would look out of place for you to be standing up there alone (and/or with your wedding party if you have one).

I think it will look great as long as he isn’t singing it down the aisle or you are’t sitting in a chair getting serenaded.
