When you attend a wedding it’s a good idea to keep some tissues in your pocket. Sure, these events usually involve kicking up your heels too – but you never know if you’re going to run into a tear-jerking moment.
Guests at one wedding could have probably shared a whole box of tissues watching the bride walk down the aisle. It was all thanks to the woman’s 12-year-old daughter.
There are tons of weddings that have gone viral because of a special twist. While some couples plan secret dances, others incorporate unique musical performances into their big day – just like in the video below. It’s so sweet that it’s racked up over a million views.
The video begins with the groom standing at the altar with his back turned.
A lot of times an instrumental song is played as the bridal party descends down the aisle. But in this case, the bride asked her musically-talented daughter to sing instead.
Everyone was in for a real treat.
The young girl is standing at the end of the aisle with a microphone in hand. Moments before the bridesmaids trickle in, she starts singing a version of Christina Perri’s love song, “A Thousand Years.” Her voice is beautiful and it’s obvious she’s full of emotion.
A short time in it gets even more heart-tugging.
Mothers can get pretty weepy watching their daughters walk down the aisle – so it’s not surprising that it can go both ways! The girl continues to sing as her mom, the bride, shows up in the doorway of the U.K. venue.
As the woman starts heading towards the altar, you can tell that she’s got a lump in her throat too. After all, she’s surrounded by her loved ones, looking at her husband-to-be, and witnessing her daughter’s stunning performance. What a memorable combination indeed!
The groom spins and finally gets to lay eyes on his gorgeous bride.
It’s common for couples to make a rule that they won’t see each other before the ceremony. Interestingly though, the tradition actually stems from arranged marriages, when the couples weren’t allowed to see each other before their big day.
But according to BRIDES, the tradition has become more of a romantic one – with the groom not seeing his bride in her dress until the event. They say on their website:
“Today, it can symbolize the pair coming together to start their lives in front of the people who have supported and loved them along the way.”
The girl beautifully sings the entire time as her mom enjoys her special moment.
When the bride gets to the altar she shares a kiss with her future husband. She then smiles and watches her daughter, and you can tell she’s one proud mama.
A person commented on YouTube:
“I couldn’t hold my tears awwwww Baby Girl…”
The mom shares a big, loving hug with her daughter after the performance.
In the YouTube video description it says:
“My beautiful 12 year old daughter sang thousand years as i walked down the aisle! She was so emotional and crying, we couldn’t be more proud :)”
You’ll probably want to grab your own tissues too, as the video has gotten comments like, “Can you watch this without just SOBBING??” Another person wrote:
“Somebody poured water all in my face. That was just beautiful.”
