So, I was thinking (very dangerous sometimes)…what about a first song instead of a first dance?! Meaning: Hubby (he will be by that time) and I would sing a song instead of having a first dance. No one, and I mean NO ONE, will know about this ahead of time. It would be a total surprise to all. I get SO excited thinking about everyone’s faces as we start belting out Lucky by Jason Mraz & Colbie Caillat. Dear Fiance is all for it & I, of course, am thrilled by the idea. I’m just worried I’m going to chicken out at the last minute & tell the DJ, “Ehm, nevermind…just play Best Friend by Queen…I can’t go through w/ it!!”. PLEASE tell me HONESTLY what you all think!

It all depends on the bride and groom’s singing talents! If you guys are any good, I think the idea is wonderful!

For me. I’d never be able to do this. 1- because I suck at singing (the Mr. makes fun of me in the car when I sing) and 2- I have horrific stage fright. However, I love the idea. And it sounds like it’d be perfect for you two. If you do it, you’ll have to let us know how it goes!

I would never be able to do this myself but it’s really unique and it sounds like it’d be fun!

A friend of ours is very talented vocally & is able to give us singing lessons (Okay, so I lied…ONE person would know about this). Our voices aren’t horrible, but it’s not going to hurt to have her help us out. I know I’d be SO SO nervous, but as soon as we started we wouldn’t give it a second thought. I just think it’s unique & I love the idea. Thanks ladies, you put some fears @ ease 🙂

I think this is a great idea if you guys can whip your voices into shape to a point where you are comfortable! Definitely a good, very unique and sweet twist on the ‘surprise’ first dance idea!

Love the idea!! I’m planning on suprising my SO with singing to him at the wedding (no one will know about it except DJ and wedding planner). A first dance is so overrated for some couples. Go with your gut. I’m imagining guests faces too as you guys sing together and it would be so memorable for everyone, but especially the two of you!! Great idea!!

I also think it is a great idea and you should do it, if you can both carry a tune.
I would hate to be a guest, if you souded like that one bridezilla a while back that sang to her husband. She was terrible.
If I tried to sing at our wedding, I would probably sound like her.
If my Fiance and I could sing, we would totally do this. I think it would be easier than a first dance.

you should totally do it!
Fiance and i will be doing something similar. Fiance will start off by thanking the guests for coming and then say that we have prepared something to show our appreciation, then he’ll play guitar and i’ll sing. i hope my voice doesn’t crack that night after a whole day of laughing, talking, and possibly some screaming 😛

My hubby really wants to do this… I have been known to sing at every family function since I was about 12. I was also frequently hired to sing at funerals at my home town… I actually had to stop in high school because people started calling me “the funeral singer” ummm yes there was a movie called the wedding singer but that isn’t funny. So since then I haven’t really been excited to perform at any function.
I think I’d be really nervous to do it at my own wedding… but if you can more power to ya!
