Hey Pit!

I'm not too frequent of a poster, but some of you might remember me posting a link to pics from the night I proposed back in October (http://imgur.com/a/cUoAM ).

Anyways, we are getting married this summer and she has hinted that I should perform a song. I'm trying to get a vibe on performing at your own wedding and it seems as with most things...some people love it some people hate it (or at least think it's tacky).

Part of me really likes the idea, and despite dealing with nerves, think it would be nice and I'd be happy I did it. The pessimistic side of me says don't do it. The further down the rabbit hole I go with wedding planning, the more I keep hearing to do what you want at your wedding because no matter what you won't please everybody. So to stay true to yourselves and have fun and so will your guests. Regardless, I'm quite ambivalent on the topic. One day I'm gung ho to do it, then the next I'm unsure.

Have any of you performed at weddings or been to a wedding where the bride or groom performed something? General thoughts?

tacky imo but if your bride wants it then go on

just make sure you drop an absolute tune


edit: yeah I actually I remember you, you're a well adorable couple and the performing was kind of a part of your proposal so wouldn't be too tacky to incorporate it into the wedding i don't think

If she wants you to do it, then do it. I mean it is her day. And completely traditional weddings are boring and out dated.

Weddings need more live music.

I'm tired of the walk down the isle, pop a squat and shit out vows that you read on a piece of paper because niggas be forgetting how love works.

I remember this and you're a right cute couple and it's a beautiful proposal (from the looks of it)

It's your day and hers. Do what you guys want, and best of luck to you
ayy lmao

I played guitar at a wedding several years ago where I accompanied the bride on a song she sang to her new husband. It was very nice. All depends on the tenor of the ceremony. This was very informal and done outside on the steps of a gazebo next to a pond on the family farm.

People on UG complementing other people? I'm so lost.

I think its probably fine, just make sure you don't suck, because that will be awkward and bad vibes for the wedding. If you're confident in your ability to perform then you should be okay.

To be fair, I'd be much more interested in the wedding if the couple literally shat out their vows.

Thanks for the positive response guys! That's the way we feel, we don't want it to be a standard cookie cutter wedding at some banquet hall or something so we're taking steps to try and make it more fun or at least interesting.

Here's the venue:

Yeah it was certainly the focal point of my proposal so I guess it follows suit. I'll have to make sure it's good though. The most people I've played in front of is about 50 or so.

You know she's been pestering me about writing our own vows, so maybe I can incorporate this in some capacity?

Somehow I feel that wouldn't go down well with the relatives.

Do a funny thing. Everyone is expecting you to do some sort of super touching I love you thing, throw a knuckleball and play something comical yet sweet.

I think it would be excellent, romantic and memorable if you just sang the one song, acoustic like.

Personally I would go for breathless - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, it's romantic (but sincere), catchy and easy:

I was at a wedding where the groom had his band perform. They brought along a singer to replace him for the night but he got up and sang two songs. I forget what they were but the first one was a romantic love song and then the second was something funny. The guests loved it and so did the bride. The band played all night and it was a really good time. I say go for it!

Play the entirety of Sleep's Dopesmoker, that's what I'd do.

Last wedding I was at, the groom sang some Van Halen and AC/DC tunes. I was a kid then so it was pretty rad.

Not quite the same but sorta related, I performed in my high school's concert band for my graduation ceremony. I was a hit!
Q: Favourite Pink Floyd song?
A: The one where they get wicked high and play Emin and A for an hour.

I assumed as much but I wasn't sure.

Everyone has actually been cool and supportive so I'm thinking I'll probably do it!

If you're gonna hire a band to play live (that's common around here at least) join them onstage for a song or two.

I wish I had a wedding

I say do it

EDIT: Correction, I wish I could have given a wedding to my wife. It's a sore spot for me that I couldn't provide that for her. Make the best of it since you have the opportunity.
My God, it's full of stars!

HAHA! Something to consider, or at least sitting on one. I'm 6'7" and she's 5'2".


Dreadnought- How long have you been married for? I'm assuming finances were the reason for not having a wedding? I'm doing my best to not break the bank, but no matter what I do it's going to be a whole lot of money for one day.

Finances, timing, etc.

It'll be 4 years on May 5. We're trying to do a big vow renewal at 5 years to make up for it
My God, it's full of stars!

I think you should go for it and play Wonderwall.
Personally, I'd go with a song that's fun and light.
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.

Don't make her stand on a stool, it's much more romantic if you pick her up to kiss her


It's also more pedosexual
