Either Steve Perry, Phil Joel, or Blaine Harrison. Actually, I’d marry Blaine, so maybe not have him sing…<3

I would have Steve Martin sing at my wedding. He’s got a lovely voice.

Joe Cocker or the guy from the band Chicago singing, “Color My World”.

No singer. I prefer only a small classical band or the orchestra.

I would marry on the same day as @Trillian in a location next to her’s and ask David to do an extra gig at mine.
We could split the costs.

Trans Siberian Orchestra playing our wedding march.

How about the Dolly Parton classic D.I.V.O.R.C.E. Well it would be kind of uphill from there on in would it not?

Trillian's avatar

Did we all notice that the question of marriage actually to me does not even occur to him? Waaaahhhhhhh! (sniff sniff) Thanks @rebbel! Hangs head, kicks viciously at an un-offending can lying on the ground

James Taylor singing “You’ve Got a Friend” for a nice, mellow wedding.

@ucme Shirley who? Knott? Is this a veiled reference to yet another of your wooden puns?

Sarah Harmer singing Open Window. She has a beautiful voice and that is a beautiful song.

ucme's avatar

@Trillian I’m going out on a limb here but, did you expect anything else…no didn’t think sow.I might branch out into another form of humour,or am I bark- ing up the wrong tree?

janbb's avatar

If I could have anyone – living or dead – I would probably choose Billie Holliday or Ella Fitzgerald.

filmfann's avatar

Elvis singing Love Me Tender, except that my wife might want to run off with him.

Trillian's avatar

@ucme You’re actually knot barking up the wrong tree, it’s a dogwood. It’s am arbo-real nice one two, with ruff bark and I’d like yew to leaf it alone, mmm-kay?
I’m going to work now.
As always, it was a pleasure.

GWAR
I want them to spray fake blood and alien slime all over the guests and sing about boners. It will be an awesome wedding

deni's avatar

billy joel would be cool. or maybe bruce jammin out to pink cadillac. but…of course…my heart desires michael jackson to be singing “the way you make me feel” duh. if he was not available i’d take elvis.

@michael_huntington MY EX BOYFRIEND WAS OBSSESSED WITH GWAR LOLOLOLOOLOL HAD WE BEEN MARRIED IM SURE THEY WOULD HAVE PLAYED. divorce would have followed quickly

I wouldn’t have minded having Heatwave sing Always and Forever at my second wedding. At my first wedding, Guns & Roses should have been there singing Welcome to the Jungle.
