Confessions of a Wedding Singer: Top Songs for Christian Wedding Ceremonies

For those of you who didn't know, Lance and I got married in April of 2014.  Through preparing for our wedding, I have discovered there are a TON of resources to find the best (or worst) music for the reception, yet not many good resources to find music for the ceremony.

To fill this gap, I have compiled a list of the most popular Christian and secular wedding hymns and songs that I have come across in my 10+ years of being a wedding singer. Below you can find my list--click on the title to listen! The recordings aren't all stellar, but should give you a good idea.

**Note--The list is set up with the Catholic wedding traditions in mind, however the majority of the music below could be used in any denomination**


Wedding Song/Hymn Suggestions
(BL) = Bilingual
(L) = Latin
Any hymn may be played as instrumental for Processional/Recessional at Bride’s request.

Processional/Brides Entrance
You can either choose (1) piece for the entire procession, or (1) piece for the bridal party and (1) for the bride - keep in mind that if your wedding space or bridal party is smaller, only (1) piece may be preferable so the transition isn't jarring. 




Psalms 
(Options from Together For Life Book):
Option 1: Psalm 33

Mass Settings 

Offertory/Communion/Meditation
Recessional
