- Wedding: October 2012
I am planning to sing to my wonderful bride at our wedding. She has no clue about this and I hope to keep it a surprise. I picked a song that we both like and is kinda obscure, which I like. I plan to play on my acoustic guitar and sing to her. I would love some direction and some comments to what everyone thinks.
So the plan is to have the ceremony then cocktail hour, which would be outside. The reception which is indoors is about 100 ft away from the cocktail hour. I would take my wife 🙂 inside and sit down facing each other. My groomsmen would then tell everyone to come into the reception quickly and queitly. I would play the first 2 chords of the song for about a minute then start the song, hoping everyone is inside.
I really want people to feel like they are walking into a intimate moment, between the two of us. I want the groomsmen to act like they just walked in on this moment and had to let everyone know what was happening. Only my parents and her parents know about this, also only a few groomsmen.
Of course this is my first time playing guitar in front of anyone, let alone singing. Luckily I have been practicing this song for months, with the guitarist who will be performing our ceremony music.
Ok so what do you all think? I have a few concerns. Such as, should I not surprise her? Should I practice with her infront of me, since I am concerned I will be an emotional mess. Any suggestions on the plan?
Thank you everyone in advance. I am very much looking forward to this amazing day! Only a few weeks away!
Also on a side note, we are writing our own vows, did who shared theirs with there SO before the wedding?
