I think it would be pretty cool. But honestly, only if you are REALLY good. And like, how are you going to know how good you are? unless you have reason to belive that you’re really good (eg, professional music training, etc,) then are you sure that you don’t just think you’re good b/c everyone close to you tells you that you are? I mean, I dont mean to sound harsh, but it’s very hard to make even an excellent singer sound good on a recording- it takes a lot of work. So, if you can get a professional studio to do that, then I think it would be a really sweet surprise!

This was actually something that I considered as well but didn’t end up doing it. We couldn’t agree on a song that I could actually pull off and I didn’t feel like trying to revamp the song we decided on. The few family members we mentioned it to were all about it and I think it would have been pretty cool if I could have pulled it off. So yea, I say go for it! Atleast record the song (if it’s something that you know well it shouldn’t take very long to do) and have it on hand if you decide to go this route. You can’t get much more personal than singing your first dance.

@AriaAmante:  Just saw the song you’re considering, I would definitely give it a go. It’s not overly challenging (it actually suits my voice pretty well) so I bet it turns out great.

I had one girlfriend record her singing a song to be played during communion/prayers.  And another girlfriend and her husband recorded their first dance song together.  I don’t think it’s strange and it’s something I’ve remembered about friends’ weddings from 5-10 years ago.  Enjoy!  🙂

You should do it!  I am also a trained vocalist (it’s what I went to school for, also!) and I considered singing at my wedding but decided that I wanted to enjoy my wedding and not have to worry about performing.  It never occurred to me to record something in advance, but if it had, I would definitely have considered it.

I’ve considered doing this… My Fiance played “When you say nothing at all” for me suggesting it as our first dance song. One of my bridesmaids suggested that I record it. I have a recording somewhere from one karaoke night. It might be at my parents house… But, I’d want to go in the studio to record it. I figure if I get the recording done and I don’t approve the worst thing that comes out of it is a fun afternoon and I can give the recording to him as his groom’s gift and I can play the real deal at the reception.

If your Fiance is like mine he’ll LOVE it!

@AriaAmante:  My sister added a really sweet touch to her wedding when she sang for her groom’s mother-son dance.

Yes, I am too. Former pro singer, toured as a backing singer 5 years back and sing in a band here in Dubai in my spare time, I am singing a song for my Fiance :)))) SHORT N SWEET, not too long n cheesy, accompanied by acoustic guitar. If you say you have trained and that you are a vocalist – GO FOR IT! It will be beautiful and he clearly adores this side of you and will love it, as will your guests. x
