Hey girlies, my Dad is passed away and we were always a very sing-songy family so I thought that at some stage during the day I'd sing a song and dedicate it to him. Thing is, where would I do it, I had thought after I walk up the aisle, or at speech time or something but I don't want to depress everyone! Maybe best leave it?? What do ye think or would ye think if someone did something along these lines? thanks a mill :thnk

I wouldn't commit myself to anything, especially not singing, whether you are a sing-songy family or not. My dad passed away a year ago in March and was sitting down talking to H2B about his speech, he mentioned my dad and I burst into tears. I've been very good with not crying or getting emotional but the closer the wedding comes the more it's getting to me. The other thing is, this day is about you and your h2b coming together, I think not putting the focus on your dad's passing is probably a better idea. Have his favourite song played during the signing of the register, you'll know why its being played but you don't have to acknowledge it to everyone. That's just my opinion though. Good luck!!

Actually as I think about it, he wouldn't appreciate me putting a downer on things or upsetting myself either. I might sing a song with my sis at some stage during the reception instead as a happy thing rather than a tribute if you get me. He'd love that. I really appreciate the advice. I already find it upsetting thinking about him not being there and like that, I'm not really emotional generally about it. It would be too much pressure!!!! :thnk
