My grandfather used to sing the song Once in love with Amy” to me as a little girl. He died when I was nine and won’t be at the wedding – and a lot of my other older male relatives used to sing me that song too, but they’re all gone now too.
My FI thought it might be nice to play that song (my name is Amy) at our wedding – of course I am thinking of telling him no b/c I might cry my eyes out, but if we were going to play it – where does it fit in?
I won’t be having a father daughter dance, which is one place I thought it could work. Any ideas? Is it wierd to play a song with your name in it at your wedding?
Any advice is much appreciated!!!

- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
Are you doing anything at a particular time in memory of deceased relatives? Lighting candles or something like that? You could possibly play it then?

I wasn’t planning on that bruschetta, but if I were it would be a good idea. It’s kind of a happy song too.

I would incorporate it into a slideshow (if you’re having one). You’re lucky you have a song with your name in it! I grew up wanting to be named Caroline because of the song “Sweet Caroline”, haha!

oh gosh – that’s a good idea too – no slideshow though – good heavens, no one needs to see my high school goth chick photos!!

It might just be a nice song to play while dancing at the reception?
I don’t know if you wanted it to be more prominent than that.

Of course it’s okay to use a song w/your name it at the wedding. I attended a wedding in 2007. Brides name is Melissa. Once the wedding ceremony ended, they played the recessional song “Beautiful Day” by U2 and then immediately following they played “Sweet Melissa” by the Allman Brothers.
It was subtle but I remember it. But it also depends on if you want the song to make an impact. That may be a deciding factor on where/when you play it.

I agree with mxf05b, maybe dance to it sometime during the reception. Maybe you can even dance with one of your uncles? If it’s later in the night, you won’t have to worry about messing up your makeup with tears!! 🙂

It’s not weird, my friend Katie married a guy named Tom and we played “She’s In Love With The Boy” which is about a girl named Katie and a guy named Tommy. 🙂 So it could be very cute as it was for them, or sweet as it could be for you.
