    I would keep the CD idea (Since music is important to you) but I wouldn’t have your fiance sing.

    @FutureWife517:  I love the idea of a mix CD of your favorite songs and symbolic songs but I’d ax the idea of your Fiance singing the covers of them. If I was a guest, I’d probably listen to it once and then it’d go into our “big box of wedding favors that we got but don’t know what to do with yet don’t have the heart to throw out.”

    I would keep the CD and since your Fiance is a professional musician, I would perhaps do a hybrid of 1/2 his songs and 1/2 songs that are meaningful to both of you. That way, it’s not like a promo CD for him as an artist but an actual meaningful compilation of music that matters to both of you.

    It’s like when a musician stars in a movie. The soundtrack is not 100% exclusively of just that musician.

    I’m a little surpised by the votes – I  think it’s a great idea. I mean if I don’t like it, after listening to it, I’d toss it, but I love that it’s so personal.

    I think this is great! Maybe because I’m a performer myself (not music) and I have lots of friends involved in the arts. I would love to receive eprsonalised favours like this!

    Maybe it’s an arty thing? You know your guests best, if you think they love it, do it!

    (That sai, I think you should do it anyway!)

    I dated a pianist and everything was always about him playing the piano every get together, everywhere we went out came his cds, every song he wanted me to hear and tbh I just wasn’t into it.  So I’m totally biased but I get cheesed out anytime I see “performances” by bride or grooms…and I guess I feel that way about the cd.

    But I also firmly believe that you should do what makes you happy and a beehive full of strangers don’t know what’s right for you. 

    eta:  when he met my family for the first time he shared his cds and music and to this day they give me hell for what a douche he was.

    @lilbluebird:  I think this is a great idea. He can put some of his songs in there and then maybe put some of your favorites in. For instance, what are you dancing to? Throw it in there! It could be a mix of all the songs played on your wedding day!

    @FutureWife517:  A) Your FH has a great voice!!!

                              B) I think it’s a great idea personally. Even if it isn’t something I am going to put on repeat for weeks at a time, I love the sentimentality and effort of it!!

    I would have him sing a couple songs on the cd, but definitely not all!
