Brett Young says his fiancée, Taylor, wants him to sing a song at the wedding BUT what should he sing?
His song? Someone else's wedding song? An original song?
Brett said “I feel like it puts you in an interesting position, because I’m not gonna sing one of my songs. I feel like that’s a cop out. That’s basically doing what I do for work every night. I’m not gonna sing one of the classic wedding songs that everybody in the world has had in their wedding. And then if I write a song, there’s a 99% chance that I’m gonna write some cheesy crap, because trying to write a wedding song is like you set yourself up to fail.”
Sounds to me like Brett is not totally comfortable with the idea of opening up his heart and singing in front of wedding guests. If that's the case, write Taylor something really honest and play it only for her after the reception. If she really wants you to do it AT the reception, do it for her and just block out everyone else and tell her what you feel. Cheesy or not, you can't go wrong with honesty, imho. Really the simplier, the better.
I know you can do it Brett. Congrats and enjoy the day. My final advice is, totally live in the moment because it all goes by WAY too fast.
