Is that crazy? I went to a wedding recently where instead of having a reading at the beginning of the ceremony they played a song. It felt a bit awkward for me but that's what they wanted, so that's just fine, but I want something a little different.
FI and i have always played music together. Actually the night we met was at a party where his band was playing and late into the night the host and i talked about the band/music/the fact i loved the music and loved to jam/sing with my friends and he was like "okay, great, we're gonna go up to the garage and youre gonna sing one with them." And within minutes we were singing Dead Weather into the same microphone, inches from each others faces.
So we've talked about possibly playing guitar/singing a song at the beginning of our ceremony instead of a reading. I'm thinking the Civil Wars rendition of "Dance Me to the End of Love".
Would that be really weird? I mean we will both be nervous, but that's something I've always had to deal with getting on stage, and music might help us ease off the nerves caused by actually getting married .
If you were attending a wedding do you prefer a reading, would something like this be nice, or would you rather we just skip it and do our vows?
