singing karaoke at a wedding

A couple of several years in the past, I when went to a marriage ceremony where…

…guests sang karaoke at the reception. Just one of the groomsmen, Michael, who till then had been really tranquil and reserved, introduced down the home singing Frank Sinatra’s My Way. (All people was then like, hold out, is Michael super warm?)

“You can not consider karaoke far too critically, which is why it’s fantastic for a marriage ceremony,” says Amy Shack Egan, founder of Present day Rebel, a wedding setting up company in Brooklyn. She understands that the phrase “wedding” can carry up heaps of baggage, so she encourages couples to split old-fashioned “rules” and just do what feels appropriate to them. “Karaoke can help all people enable their guard down. As a wedding planner, I 10/10 propose.”

When my good friend Emily got married, she sang Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain, to her new partner, which is a hilarious selection. “I was so drunk,” she texted me right now. “But it is a good song and he cherished it!
