Getting married in a church can be challenging when selecting your church wedding songs. Before selecting any music, be sure to speak to your Priest/Pastor/Officiant about the rules of what music is allowed. Another thing to consider is who will be playing the music. Some churches only have an organ or piano, while others may have a complete band ensemble.
Another consideration is to plan your songs by the size of the church. If the church is small, you would not want long length songs for the entrance and exit.
Church Wedding Songs
Songs played as the wedding party enter the church and approach the altar are known as the processional songs. Here are processional songs for church weddings.
The bride’s entrance is typically highlighted by the Here Comes The Bride song. However, here are a few other options as well for your church wedding.
Songs are also played during church weddings during:
- Unity Candle Lighting
- Signing of the marriage licence
- Presentation of the gifts
- Songs during “down-time” like before and after vows, ring exchange and readings.
As the bride and groom leave the altar area after the ceremony has concluded (Recessional), the classic song to be played is the Wedding March.
