Bride Singing To Groom At Ceremony

I want to sing to my groom at our wedding during the ceremony but I don't know where in the ceremony it should go...any advice?

    You will be so emotional during your ceremony.  Even if you are a professional singer, it could be very difficult.  I would suggest you consider doing it at the reception instead of during the ceremony.

    My sister asked me to sing at her wedding ceremony, but I declined because I knew I'd be bawling my eyes out.  (I totally was.)  There's no way I could sing at my own ceremony.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    If you want a really honest opinion ... as a guest I would find it weird. I think it'd put too much focus on the bride, and the ceremony's supposed to be about the two of them. I think it's a nice thought but I wouldn't do it.

    I'm sorry if this sounds mean, but if I were a guest, I would find it incredibly awkwar to witness the bride or groom singing to each other at a wedding. It's just too corny or intimate to share in public. No matter how great of a singer you are. So if you are going to embarrass and torture your guests, it doesn't really matter when you do it. What about at the reception? Maybe just before your first dance.

    I want to do it too... but I've been reconsidering and letting my band do it instead (I'm in my church band, so they are singing for the wedding).  I'm a wedding ceremony singer, so I'm trying to figure out if it's expected of me or not.But we're doing CD favors for every group of guests, and I'm going to do a recording on the CD.If you do sing at the wedding, it really depends on the kind of ceremony that you have.  If you're having a Catholic mass or full Christian service (I'm Catholic, so we're doing the full mass) Communion is a good time to hop in, if you're not, it can get awkward with nothing else going on.Talk to the person(s) that is doing the rest of the music, they are normally a good resource on what has been done and what works the best.

    At the church I went to, back when I still did the Catholic thing, there was usually a song during Communion.  (Usually two or three, actually; big church.)  I think that's when I probably would have sang at my sister's wedding, because the song she wanted me to do, "How Beautiful," was usually a Communion song.  There was one line about a bride and groom, but the rest was pretty Jesus-centric.  I definitely don't see a secular song flying during the very holiest portion of the Mass.Now that I think about it, I do fully intend to sing a cheesy love song to my groom--at the karaoke afterparty.

    WOW, I cannot believe all the requests on here. c_warner_d-I say, GO FOR IT!! I had a song picked out for literally years, and knew that I wanted to sing it to him during the ceremony. We recently got married 9/18/09, and I sang to him, and I don't know how many people came up to me and told me that was their favorite part of the ceremony. I didn't cry at all. I was on such an emotional high all day. I sang "A Woman's Prayer" which a really old song, and hard to find on the internet. I surprised him and sang it right before we said our vows. It was awesome, and I never regret doing it. Hope this helps you! I don't think you'll regret it if you do it!

    No. Just no. That would clearly suck the attention from the religious/spiritual ceremony to you. Totally inappropriate.

    My cousin sang a song for his wife during the ceremony. We all thought it was romantic and great! It was a Lutheran ceremony and a surprise to her!

    I think it depends on how you do it.  The only ceremony during which the bride sang to the groom was my cousin's, and can I tell you it was so awkward and showy like it was a theatrical production that it took out the intimacy of the wedding away.  It was horrid that they made people sit through that and everyone politely clapped but I could see the confusion on everyone's face.  I am not sure what you have in mind, but just don't do how my cousin did it.  But in general, I'd say no.  Maybe during the reception, but not the ceremony.

    Oops, I just realized that the OP didn't even ask for our opinion about if she should sing, but WHEN she should sing.  Sorry!  I assumed it was asked as everyone was voicing their opinion about whether to sing or not.

    There were a few other posts that totally said what I was thinking. My soon to be brother and sister in law both love to do karaoke, and at their wedding they sang to each other. It was so... weird. I thought it was actually cheesy, and it felt like we should all be sitting at a bar listening to people... well.. do karaoke.  If it were at the ceremony- it probably would have been even more strange. I don't mean to sound mean, but the fact that others are thinking the same thing made me just want to add my thoughts.

    I say GO FOR IT! Is it your wedding or the guests??? It is your day and your grooms day. You are doing it for him, and that is all that matters! Who cares what guest think? At least I dont!
