hmmm I once went to a wedding where the bride and groom sang to each other during the ceremony.

Honestly it was pretty cringey but at the end of the day who cares – they were happy and it’s their wedding! I don’t actually judge them for it I just found it awkward. 

Do whatever will make you happy 🙂

kittymoon777 :  I get uncomfortable seeing or hearing other people sing outside of karaoke and professional concerts. But I don’t know how many people share my opinion and if it makes you happy, do it. It’s your wedding, your day, your party.

I sang to my husband at our reception, and I didn’t tell him ahead of time. It was actually one of my favorite memories of the wedding because he cried (and I don’t think he’s ever cried happy tears before). It was incredibly special for the 2 of us. That being said, I waited until the 2nd half of the reception when only the die hard people were still there, and I almost didn’t go through with it because I felt so weird about it. I also want to note that I have never had stage fright in my entire life and have sung professionally throughout my career, so if you already have anxiety about it, it may be way worse!


But yeah, ultimately I think it was a really wonderful moment and if you think your husband would find it special, go for it.

Iʻd cringe but itʻs YOUR day, not mine.

FWIW, maybe it pays to know the audience. My SIL and her now husband had their first dance to a song that my SIL did a cover of and recorded for the wedding. The family appreciates it because they all know and support her singing. I thought it was a bit…conceited but like I said the family loved it and it obviously meant a lot to the couple.

kittymoon777 :  My friend’s husband did exactly what you’re thinking about doing – he surprised her (and everyone) during the reception with a slideshow of their favorite pictures with him singing their song in the background. Only he is not a singer and was horribly off key. It was SO cringey in the moment (longest 3 minutes ever) and even now, almost 2 years later, we think of that moment every time we hear the song on the radio. So unless your voice is amazing and you’re confident when recording, I wouldn’t even think of it. It could be amazing or it could be one of the most memorable wedding moments for all of the wrong reasons.

kittymoon777 :  we attended a wedding were the bride recorded herself singing for their first dance. I thought it was super cringey but it wasn’t my wedding day. I also didn’t think she could actually sing so it wasn’t that great to listen to.

Those close to you probably won’t think it’s cringey and don’t worry about grumpy, soulless people like myself.
