Maybe you could check out a karaoke night in your area, that way you could get a feel for being up in front of a crowd singing (and karaoke is something nobody expects perfection from…lol). Try out the song together and see how you feel about it. Another option could be to check out an open mic night where you can get up & sing whatever you wish. I think it would be a lovely idea for your reception if you are comfortable with it, a very personal touch!

I think that’s a great idea! I like happilywaiting’s idea of going to a karaoke bar. And if you choke up while signing at the reception, people will probably think it’s cute because you’re overwhelmed with emotion towards your new husband.

I think it will be great!

 My FH and I are also musical and we are going to perform at our reception too. The bluegrass band we booked to do the music is the band that he used to tour with, so he is really comfortable with the guys. I have never performed with them, but I am sure it will be just fine. If it isn’t…well that is ok too

 The coolest thing about this idea is the fact that you are going to give your guests a very special look at one of the things that makes you such an amazing couple. IMO, singing together is very intimate (think Johnny and June) and will be a wonderful opportunity to show everyone the love you share.

Practice is always the best way to gain confidence, but don’t worry too much about the nerves. You will either do a fantastic job, or you will get choked up but either way your guests will think it is amazing!!

Check out this video by Elysium Productions.  Wait for it to upload and then fastforward to about 3/4 of the way through the video.  The bride, Sheridan, sings "Feels Like Home" to her new husband at the reception and it is so sweet!  It might be some good inspiration. 🙂  I think singing is a really cute idea, and you should go for it!
