Mourner at Child’s Wedding

I’m in my 12th month of Aveilus and my daughter is IYH getting married and she wants me to sing ‘Boruch Haboh’ at her Chuppah. Is it permissible?
Thank you

Answer:

A parent in the year of a aveilus may participate normally in the wedding of their child. This would include singing at the chuppa as this is part of the mitzva of simchas chasan vkalla. [see Shu”t Zera Emes 3:170, Shu”t Divrei Yatziv 329]
