Could she sing her song right after the first dance, and the DJ could invite the guests onto the dance floor then?

My friend sang the first dance song for her brother’s wedding.  There was a band though, and she’s worked as a singer in wedding bands in the past, so I think it went pretty naturally.

Have your friend sing a meaningful song during dinner, and you and your new husband and dance to it; so people are watching you dance and listen to your friend sing, and other people can join in as well.

I attended a wedding last summer in which the bride’s brother surprised the couple with a song between dinner and the 1st dance. My fiance accompanied on guitar. I think it’d be nice if the song had some sort of meaning to you and she could dedicate it/explain it beforehand so it would be clear to all your guests =). She can also arrange to have the DJ play the background track to whatever song you guys end up choosing!

I have a close friend singing two songs at our wedding that hold great meaning to us.  I think they can sing during the cocktail hour or with the band if you have one.  I think it is a fabulous idea.  Don’t make a big deal of it – but it will be meaniful for all.

My friend will be singing the first dance song at our wedding (plus a song during the ceremony) and we’re having a DJ.  I don’t think it would look cheesy if your friend sang a "momentous" song–first dance, last dance, father daughter, etc.
