I don’t know what rock I have been living under, but I just heard “Lucky” by Jason Mraz and Colby Caillait and it MUST play at the wedding… I have literally been all teary ever since I heard it…
You see, my Fiance and I have been in a very very long distance relationship for the past 3 years (been together 5) and he is coming home for good right before our May wedding. He is gone for 3-4 months at a time and only home for one, which has been difficult, to say the least. Each time he leaves it gets harder and harder to be away from him. People are always so negative about the fact that I’m “wasting my 20’s” to be with him, but I can’t imagine life without him.
Anyway, I’m looking for some advice about how I can incorporate the song into the ceremony. My brother will be singing at the wedding, but he *loathes* jason mraz, so I don’t even want to ask him to sing it. When do you think I should play it?
Here’s a youtube link in case you have been under a rock with me 🙂

You could use it when you are walking in or out of the wedding ceremony, during the unity candle (if you are doing that), or as your first dance song.

I’ve never heard this song either, so don’t feel bad 🙂 It’s really cute! Do you have a first dance song yet? You could use it as that…

Your brother should be able to stand Lucky just for 3 1/2 minutes 😉 After all, you’re his sister! If you haven’t already picked your first dance song, use “Lucky”. If you already have one, use it for your cake cutting moment (:

It is a cute song, and popular for first dances. You can also use it any time at all, including as your recessional, your entrance to the reception song, your cake cutting song, you name it. Or ask your brother nicely to sing it.

Your brother may not have the voice to carry this song, so I wouldn’t ask him to sing it if he already said he doesn’t want to. We also don’t know if he’s a volunteer choir singer, professional, or a person who sings in the shower! It’s better to err on the side of caution on this one!
My vote would be to NOT use it as a processional. It’s a little too teary eyed for my taste for a recessional after you are married. You don’t want to start bawling and you don’t want everyone feeling melencoholy right after you’ve been pronounced husband and wife. That’s the time for ‘mozel toffing’ and cheering and cameras and beaming hearts and smiles!
How about the first dance? I think that’s a super time. It’s about the two of you and that’s what the message of the first dance lyrics should portray.
I don’t think others should cut in and you shouldn’t have the bridal party or others join you though. It’s your song and you and he alone should dance it out together!
Best of luck.
