Hey fellow UUers! Please wish me luck...

This Saturday I'm getting married! I'm going to play the Hawaiian Wedding Song at the ceremony. I'm very nervous about singing in such a quiet space (registry office) but I've practiced like crazy and think I'm ready to go!

Just got to choose which ukulele to use now - probably my LoPrinzi. Then onto the speech!!!

Matt

I wish you years of discovery and happiness.

Thanks everyone. I'm quite nervous but I also can't wait. We wanted to wedding to be really personal to us and ukulele is such a big part of my life. I proposed with a song by ukulele too. We've also gone for lots of Beatles paraphernalia for the reception afterwards because we both love the Fab Four so much. :)

PS: What are the chances of pics of the décor at the reception? (Fellow Beatlemaniac here.)

Best wishes for a wonderful marriage--and since it started with an ukulele proposal and tied the knot with an ukulele melody, I'm sure it'll be a great one!

congratulations. Have fun.

I actually played uke and tried to sing only after playing a few months and it was atrocious. :) A few years later, my wife says I have improved a lot. That memory will always be there.

Congratulations and all the best! I have had 27 years of marital blitz - I mean bliss - and I highly recommend it. In the words of Socrates, "A man should marry by all means. If he gets a good wife, he will be happy. If he does not, he will become a philosopher..." But seriously, I do wish you great joy and a long and happy union.

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage.

Instead of the bride throwing away a bouquet, why not toss a ukulele into the crowd!

Thanks everyone for the lovely messages!

It was a lovely wedding and honeymoon. The wedding song went well. I was very nervous so my singing was a bit wobbler than normal, but everyone enjoyed the ukulele and the song. The registrar said it wa her favourite thing to happen at one of their weddings tee hee!!

I didn't get a video but here's a picture of us outside.

I managed to squeeze a travel Uke in my suitcase for honeymoon. My wife was very nice about it so I got to have a jangle or two by the pool.

That's the true extent of your uke addiction well and truly revealed. Couldn't stop laughing as I read that, Matt. Congratulations.
