Is karaoke at a wedding weird?

We booked our DJ and he told us he'll throw in complementary karaoke if we would like. I've never seen that at a wedding before so i didn't know if that would be a little weird?

    I wouldn't be into that at all. I'm trying to dance and drink at weddings, not listen to a bunch of amateurs try to sing the Backstreet Boys.

    That honestly sounds like a very fun, unique time! I know it would certainly be one of the many highlights of the night for me.

    I think it's ok for a little while, maybe an hour. But after that, I would be over it.

    I've never seen it, but it could be a lot of fun. If you think it's weird though, don't do it. You should love every aspect of your wedding

    I think it's one of those "know your crowd" kind of things. I don't think it would be well received with my guests, but If you have a crowd that's into it, go for it.

    I have been to two weddings that I can recall having karaoke and both were fun but totally a know your crowd situation. One was in Texas and the karaoke was all country and power ballads of the 80s the karaoke started after the formal part of the reception and after lots of dancing and booze. The second one was a wedding in Germany and I for one was entrained listening to our German hosts and their guests sing Katy Perry in thick German accents. Both of these events were heavy on the hard alcohol.

    Yes. I would cringe my way home if people started doing karaoke at a wedding.

    I think that would be a great idea, sounds like lots of fun and changes it up as far as wedding entertainment goes

    I thought this sounded fun until I actually went to a karaoke night. No thanks

    No, please do not make your guests suffer! I would be horrified if I was at a wedding and had to listen to my drunk uncle Joe try and sing his rendition of The Dixie Chicks! It's awkward. Karaoke does not Belong at weddings.

    I think it'd be fun once every was nice and liquored up a little.

    I think it sounds awesome...depending on your guests and how many there are. I'm doing a boozey reception in a hotel suite in Vegas for about 35-45ppl and think Karaoke would be a fun addition as the night progresses. But it works in that situation.

    I think this is a know your crowd situation. If most if your guests enjoy singing (and can hold a tune), sure go for it. If that is not the case, I think it could quickly devolve into awkwardness.

    Lol thanks for the opinions girls! While I know many of my family members like singing karaoke, it does not mean they sound as good as they think lol. I really had no idea what to tell the DJ but now I'm leaning towards no. While I think it would be fun after everyone has had a couple drinks, i do see the awkwardness in just giving random people the microphone..... Yikes! Defiantly don't want my guest leaving early because my drunk uncle is singing his lungs out or have them feeling like they're in a bar!
