If you’re decent singers (not even great, but at least not tone deaf, haha) then I think it would be cute! I mean, I know I’m not a good singer… do you have family and friends that would be honest with you about how good of a singer you are?

I would do this in lieu of a first dance or other events. Most weddings I’ve been to, I’ve wanted to get to the dancing & socializing, rather than sitting and watching.

I’ve been singing since I could talk and was even a voice major in college. I know that I can sing well but I didn’t want to showcase my skills at our wedding. I had quite a few people ask if I’d be singing but I didnt think it was a good idea. For one, I think it’s a bit self indulgent when the whole day is already about you (a general “you”) but beyond just that, I wouldn’t want the nerves to get the best of me infront of all of my family and friends. If I’m going to choke, I’d much rather it be in a room of strangers who I’ll never have to face again.

For some reason, I think the idea of this is awkward (even if you’re good singers). I think if I attended a wedding where the bride and groom sang to one another, I would think it was a little bit cheesy (sorry!) Who knows though; maybe you guys can pull it off!

@kandeK:  Nope, not for me personally but that’s just my opinion. If you want to sing at your wedding then do it. It doesn’t matter what strangers on the internet think.

Not something I would ever personally do, and would maybe feel awkward if I attended a wedding with singing couples. But if you want to do it, then do it.

@kandeK:  Yes, but our opinions shouldn’t determine what you do. If you want to sing at your wedding then go for it. You’re the one who will either reap the benefits of an awesome performance or embarrass yourself infront of everyone you know. That’s pretty much a decision that you have to make on your own.

I think you should do it! I was thinking of singing to my Fiance at my wedding as well. I personally think it would create a special moment between you two. If you think you have the confidence and you know it would make him feel special and create a moment for you two then do it! It’ll only set your wedding apart from everyone else. After all, your wedding is about the two of you, not anyone else!

I say go for it as well. I think it’s cute and sweet and different.

I’ll personally be surprising everyone and singing Never quit loving you by jill barber after I do my dress change. It’s one of my FI’s favorite songs (in fact he often sings it to me) and I know that he will get a HUGE kick out of it and for me that’s what’s most important as long as it’s making him happy I’m happy. I know that sounds corny and cheesy but shrugs. My mom always says I’m the corniest person she knows.

I’m sorry to sat this, but I’ve been to weddings where the couple did this, and even though they sang ok and didn’t embarrass themselves, I thought it was ackward and cheesy. Just my personal opinion though.

I think it sounds like a great idea 🙂

we are having karaoke in the later part of our reception (once everyones good and liqured up :D)

 

My partner IS tone def but I think we would all get into him getting up and dedicating a song to me once everyones had a few 😀

I would personally think it was awkward as a guest. How about recording yourself and sending him a CD to listen to in the AM before the guys come over to get ready? Or meeting up privately to do it so it’s special between you two? I just think it’s a little too much of a show to be something really personal at the same time, and all eyes are already on you two since it’s your wedding day. As a guest, I’d feel like I was intruding on something a little too intimate, but I think it would be very sweet to do as a private thing between the couple (sing him a voicemail, make him a CD, etc).
