We’re getting married this year in the church and I’m looking for some music suggestions. My fiance says that sometimes I just like to be a little different (I’d agree with that statement), so the common wedding music suggestions of Canon in D, Ave Maria, Joyful Joyful make me want to do something different but still meaningful. What are some good hymns for a wedding (especially those hymns that might not be traditionally used for a wedding)?
Our church is very rural, so no music director or anything to work with. We share our international priest with two other churches. So, I’d like to go into our liturgy planning meeting with some ideas in hand just to make that process easier.
A few times when I was in church I thought- wow that would make a nice song for the wedding- and one of my regrets is not writing them down because of course I cannot remember them! One of them I heard was this Saturday night and I’ve forgotten it already!
I appreciate any thought that you give to this request. God bless!
