    Never experienced this but reading the title made me cringe, TBH. If it was a religious song you sing in church liky a hymn I could kind of see but beyond that I literally can’t think of any other song that would be good to do this.

    It all sounds soooooo awkward. I wouldn’t do it.

    Need more specifics. At what point in the ceremony are you expecting this to happen? Curious what the song would be too. I’ve not seen this accomplished or partaken, but I could kind of see it for a processional or recessional, if you had friends in the audience to start things? We had friends whom had close friends in the audience read/say quotes throughout the ceremony from their seats. That’s about as close as we got lol.

    This would make me, as a guest, feel even more akward than a flash mob dance would. Pass.

    I recently went to a wedding where the first groomsman (who is 13, I believe) was to start walking down the aisle and sing “Hey! Baby (Would you be my girl?)” until the DJ started playing it for the rest to walk down. Well, the DJ had forgotten some equipment (he was the worst DJ we’d ever seen despite it being one of the best weddings ever), so we all ended up joining in as everyone made their way down. It gave me goosebumps, personally, and everyone seemed to love it when talking afterward. I think it’s because the couple is so warm and spontaneous that it just worked for their wedding. I absolutely loved it 🙂

    I’d proceed only if you have some loud and willing participants that you can have to get the crowd going!

    My large family of inlaws are very musical, they play instruments and have beautiful voices and it is normal for us at family gatherings for them all to play music and sing on occasion.  I think they would love it, but me as a “normie” that can’t sing, usually feels quite awkward and useless when this type of thing happens.  I’m used to it at family gatherings now, but they actually are enjoyable to listen to.  

    So, if you have a group of guests that love to sing for fun, it could work…but there will likely be some people that are not comfortable with it.

    Sounds like one of my worst nightmares.  

    People don’t need an awkward experience to bond them and break the ice.  That is what booze is for.

    This sounds awkward af. Other people singing makes me sooo uncomfortable lol.

    If you have a bunch of rowdy friends that would be 100% willing to go with it, maaaybe I could see it working.
