Would it be weird if I sang a song to my husband at the reception?
Back story…I have huge stage fright, but I’ve been told and honestly do think that I can sing really well. I’ve always dreamed of singing At Last (yes a predictable chioice, but I have truly loved this song since I was a little girl). FI hasn’t really heard me sing outside of in the car to the radio or while I’m getting ready for work, and always says I won’t do it for him. A lot of my friends have actually been telling me to do this 9they just know because of karoke nights) and I’m thinking I’ll already have a bit of liquid courage in my system part way through the reception….Would this be weird or sweet?

While things like this are always a sweet gesture, they tend to end in disaster unless you’re Celine Dion or something. All I can think about is that episode of Bridezillas where the “voice teacher” sings a song to her groom and it’s absolutely dreadful. Like comically bad.
I’m a singer. Been singing since I could talk and performing at our wedding did cross my mind. I’ve had people ask if I was going to be singing at our wedding and I just can’t bring myself to do it. It could end up really cheezy and I’d rather not embarass myself on my wedding day.

I have a friend of mine who just got married. He is an AMAZING singer. He used to sing professionally on cruise boats, and would go to all the bars and win the kareoke competitions. He had an idea to sing to his wife during their first dance. Problem being: he was VERY emotional. So emotional his throat closed up and his singing sounded sub-par. He’s sung in front of crowds of thousands no problem, but this was a whole new ball park.
I would reccomend against it. Especially if you don’t already have experience singing in front of crowds, and haven’t sang in front of you. Friends will always tell you you sound good and should do it, but just keep this in mind.
