    I would not do it.  And this is coming from a former vocal performance major.

    WAYYYYYYYYYY too much stress, like… way too much.  Maybe recording it earlier and dancing to it, but I do not recommend attempting to sing at your own wedding.

    I wouldn’t do it at the wedding. Maybe at the RD?

    However, I did see an episode of 4 weddings where the bride sang to her groom as she was coming down the aisle. She sang like for a minute and then the choir took over. WHEW! Everyone was crying! I was crying, she was crying, he was crying, it was just a mess!

    Or you could do a Glee like ceremony and do a song as an entrance to the ceremony. That would be fun.

    I wouldn’t do it. I had a bunch of people ask if I was going to sing at our wedding and I was like, “Uh, NO. My wedding is not one of my performances. It’s about Darling Husband and I getting married.”

    I would not.  Wedding days are already so nervous don’t do this to yourself.  Save it for another occasion – what about rehearsal dinner that may have a small crowd?

    I’m a singer, I can sing hanging upside down, eating a bowl of cereal while juggling fire and I didn’t sing at my own wedding. There is way too much going on, and if you are already nervous it’s just going to make you dread the day.

    My opinion is  unless you are performing at a professional level no one wants to hear you warble through “I’ve had the time of my life”.

    I wouldn’t, mostly b/c of the nerves, but also I think it would be a little odd to break out in a performance (esp since it would be a serious performance, not a fun lightheartded goofy one.)

    @KristenGotMarried: Agreed! From another singer let me say you have enough on your plate!!! Just sit back, relax and enjoy…don’t take on more.

    @flamingred: LOL! That would be one hell of a concert!
