    @Dawn1234:  Ask him what he thinks. 

     

    If you want it to be a surprise, say you saw something on tv, in a movie, magazine, etc. about someone who did it and you wondered what he’d think about something like that.

    Do you have formal singing experience?

    I was at a wedding where the groom sang to the bride as a surprise. It was really awkward, despite his fairly good singing voice. As a guest, I just wanted to hide. I can’t explain why. I guess it seemed a bit attention-grabby, and overly intimate? But whenever anyone talks about that wedding, that’s the first thing they mention, and never in a positive way.

    I’m sorry I think it’s kind of tacky. If you can sing then its very “look at me!” & if you can’t sing then it’s just embarrassing.

    It really depends, I think. In Hawaii most brides dance a hula for their husbands at the reception. It’s traditional and romantic. (I didn’t do it, because I’m not a very good dancer and the whole idea made me uncomfortable, but it’s extremely common.) My uncle sang to his wife at their reception. I think she was a little embarassed having so much attention on her, but the guests seemed to think it was very sweet.

    @Dawn1234:  one of my friends sang to her husband at the reception. It was awkward, even though she has a nice voice.

    @Dawn1234:  I posted a thread recently about this. I personally would never do it.

    Two of the brides are actually quite decent, but it is awkward. Two chose to do it while walking down the aisle (definitely awkward), one did it during the reception and while they were dancing (still awkward).

    Please dont. It would be so awkward for your guests.

    And getting drunk so you will be more apt to do it sounds like a trainwreck waiting to happen.

    I’ve seen it at a wedding once and it was really weird and uncomfortable for the guests.

    It was a surprise for the Groom and boy was he embarrassed we all felt so bad for him. My advice would be PLEASE don’t do it!

    If you were a professional singer, I’d say maybe. But if you need booze to get up the nerve to sing, I don’t think it’s the best idea to do this on your wedding day, in front of both your families and friends.
