Hey bees! I am planning to have a good friend sing a meaningful song during our wedding ceremony but I have no idea when to include it. I was not planning on doing a unity candle, because the ceremony will be outside. Also, I am not a huge fan of the sand mixing, so I don’t plan on doing that either. So, I have no idea where to include the song Or what we should do during the song. I feel like it would be weird to just look at each other while she sings, haha. I would love suggestions! Thanks yall!

kl6294: We did it during the signing of the marriage certificate. i.e. after the vows, we went off to the side table to sign the certificate (and got photographed doing it). 5 people needed to sign it (bride + groom, celebrant, two witnesses (Best man and Maid of Honour) so it took a few minutes.

aussiemum1248: That might depend on where she’s from. We never had to sign our certificate (we’re in the states). Only the officiant needed to sign it (no witnessess needed) so he took it home with him and mailed it in. It wasn’t a production or a part of our ceremony.
kl6294: I’d just include it where you’d do a reading. Perhaps after your vows or the exchange of rings porition of the ceremony.

kl6294: I’d just include it wherever it’s appropriate, such as at a time when you could do a reading. I also don’t think it would be weird to do nothing during the solo, other than look at the soloist or each other. If your soloist is visible, even off to the side, I would think that anyone who does not have their back to the soloist would be looking at her while she is singing. It might be kind of nice to have a moment when it’s just you and your FI looking at each other and listening to the song, while everyone else watches the soloist.
