This is a bit of a taboo subject. You mention the words ‘wedding’ and ‘karaoke’ in a sentence and everyone seems to have a pretty strong opinion of whether that is a good or a bad thing! It’s a tricky one; some people feel that it is a bit tacky for a wedding, whereas others know that their family and friends would really enjoy a bit of wedding karaoke and have an amazing amount of fun.

Although it’s probably not something I personally would choose, I think wedding karaoke is a great idea if it suits you and your other half. There’s a bit of a tendency to try to ‘keep up with the Joneses’ with weddings, and it’s sad when couples lose that personal touch. This is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most important days of your life, so why shouldn’t you have a bit of fun? If karaoke is something you love, you should be up on that stage, singing your heart out for everyone to hear!

Band Karaoke

Have you heard of band karaoke? This is a new idea that has become popular over the past few years. It follows the same format of a normal karaoke session, but there’s a live band to back you. They have hundreds of songs under their belt, so they can back you perfectly and make you feel like even more of a star!

Perhaps this is worth considering? A lot of the band-karaoke acts I know offer a party set alongside the karaoke set, so you get a lot for your money and it means there’s time for some dancing too! It can also give the whole thing a ‘cooler’ edge.

If You Love Singing, Go For It!

Before I start writing my articles I always do a few hours research on whatever subject I’m writing about. Researching to write this one made me realise how many people worry about the choices they make with their wedding plans. There are thousands of people posting onto forums asking “is wedding karaoke a mistake?”. Nothing is a mistake, unless you book or choose something that you and your other half don’t like.

Don’t feel pressured into making decisions on anything unless it pleases both of you. If you love singing and know that you’d have the night of your lives singing away to karaoke with your friends and family at your wedding, then I say 100% go for it!
