Any bees having someone sing at the wedding? Who? When? What are they singing?
I’ve never heard of this before but FI wants his sister to sing. Before I completely say no, I’d like to figure out how it would fit in? I’ve honestly never heard of having someone get up and sing during the wedding. But FI says his sister is a really good singer… my brother’s really good at beer pong, should he get up and demonstrate? lol!
But seriously, is this common?

I used to be a wedding singer, so I have to go with yes!
It depends on your ceremony where it would fit, but ceremonies are so customized these days, it could really go anywhere. The wedding I was at yesterday had a song after the vows when the couple went up to do their unity candle. At a friend’s wedding this spring, she had friends sing as a prelude before the moms walked down the aisle. When I sang, I ended up after the reading but before the vows a lot. You can put it wherever you want, and it’s a nice way to include people who are special to you, especially if they have the talent.

Well I had a Catholic ceremony, which involves ten or so songs during the mass, so yes! I had a singer.
I think having someone sing is a beautiful addition to any wedding (be it a religious ceremony or not), and if it’s someone close to the bride and groom, even better. You could have FI’s sister sing before the ceremony as people are walking in, or perhaps sing something short while you light the unity candle, or even stand up in front of everyone and sing something as one of the “events” in the ceremony. There are lots of ways it could work!

I guess it just depends what kind of ceremony you’re having and how you envision it all to go. It also depends what kind of style she will want to sing in (be it classical, folky, etc.) . Many of my friends have sang at weddings whether it be a church service, on a beach with accoustic guitar, interfaith ceremony, or whatever.
