    No. It's weird that she asked a guy you do not know to sing at your wedding. : (9 votes)

    i dont see the difference between her singing a duet with someone she trusts/knows they are gifted or where people hire strangers/musicians for their weddings – its nice you want her to sing but the “honor” isnt life changing for her

    im not religous but i like the song (although Celine butchers it and her version is long) – maybe you can ask her for some options and pick the one you like

    It’s Your wedding, and I think You get to say what music is played/sung at your wedding! Think about what message you want to convey to yourself, your partner, and your guests – the sentiments that You want to be the footprint of how you start your life together. It’s a sweet gesture that your family wants to bring something personal to the ceremony, but bottom line is it’s your decision to make. My two cents!

    I would thank her so much for the offer, then give her a list of songs that I would like her to choose from.  You do not have to have  a Christian song just because that is her belief. There are lots of other lovely songs that should not be offensive for her to sing.

    If she wanted to sing a duet with this guy, she should have asked you first. You are under no obligation to invite him.

    You are obviously uncomfortable about this whole thing (with good reason, imo), so I would suggest going over everything with them and telling them exactly what you’re wanting.
