    I dont think you should keep it a secret from him. What about at the rehearsal? Are you not going to practice timing? How will he know when youre coming down? Seems like a lot of extra headache just to keep a secret.

    I see nothing wrong with using the song, but keeping it a secret seems strange and unnecessary.

    I don’t really know why it would have to be kept a secret…

    This is kind of your call, I get that that you want it to be a secret so when it comes on it is a surprise and it is emotional and all. Honestly, I think you can keep it a secret if it isn’t a big deal… like I wouldn’t TELL him “I am keeping it a secret” or anyone else. Unless he is really involved in the planning, I doubt he would even notice until the day of. And PP mentioned timing, but I didn’t practice with my song, so it really depends on your venue and all. This is all you, Bee! 🙂

    Hmmm If that’s the song you sing when one of you does something gross or unattractive, why would you want that for when you walk down the aisle- which should be far from gross or unattractive? Lol. I wouldn’t want the correlation of that meaning to be linked to that special moment but that’s just me 🙂 do what makes you happy! I wouldn’t surprise him though, I’d fill him in.

    I think that would be awesome! Cute and funny. My fiancé and I hve inside joke songs like that too, if I added one into the ceremony he would die laughing

    I chose a personal song for us as my processional song and didn’t tell him what it would be. He definitely got emotional when he heard the song start up. We didn’t do a rehearsal though, and he never asked what it would be, so it wasn’t really a secret, it just never came up. I think its a sweet thing to do!

    I kept mine a secret, but we didn’t rehearse anything. I think it makes a nice moment when the groom is surprised by the song.

    I’m confused why you’d want a song that has been an inside joke for you and your Fiance commenting on things that are “gross or unattractive” as the song for when you walk down the aisle. 

    Either way, I also think that it’s unnecessary to keep it a secret.

    I think it would be a cute inside thing for you two. Mine was sort of a secret, mostly because I knew he didn’t l know of the song so I just didn’t tell him what it was. It was kind of like my secret message for him to hear when I walked out. 

    I get the humor you’re going for, I think people are missing that this is a funny inside joke for you guys. Obviously you aren’t intenting for the song to have a gross/unattractive meaning at your wedding… those are just the times you guys make the joke/sing the song.

    When my sister got married, her husband picked out the song but they kept a secret from everyone, including me the Maid/Matron of Honor.  I haven’t kept my song a secret from anyone who asks.  I also directly let my groom hear it so I could get his opinion on it vs another song.
