I don’t know if it would work at a Catholic ceremony, but the song “For the Beauty of the Earth” by John Rutter is a GORGEOUS choral arrangement, and we used to sing it all the time at the Lutheran church I attended for a while.  I plan on trying to use it at my Catholic wedding, too.

We were allowed “modern” songs with those same restrictions and I picked “This Kind of Love” by Sister Hazel and they approved it for my unity candle. It’s not country, but it’s a very pretty song. 🙂

Sounds like we’re in the same (lucky!) boat!  We are thrilled with our music… maybe give you a few ideas also?  To name a few, we are using:

The Irish wedding song (OK, terrible sample, but use some imagination to imagine with your musicians)

The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

You Raise me up

Alegria (OK, not so “Catholic” at all, but full of rejoicing if you can imagine a non-circus version!)

Good luck!

Annnd… one more that we are using that you might find as cool as we did:

Love never fails (vocal rendition/interpretation of Corinthians 13)

I agree with @jazinlove, Ave Maria is beautiful, hearing it gives me goosebumps. I can’t wait to hear it at my wedding, I know it will make me get very emotional!!

@BrideChristina: Agreed, that song gives me good bumps also! What version are you using? I have 6 different ones on itunes. My favorite at the moment is by Angela Birkhead-Flight

Absolutely love this, and I’ve seen it used in Catholic ceremony music listings. Again, imagine it with your musicians:

The Wedding Song – Peter, Paul and Mary

ETA: I know it’s not country, but it’s still folksy. I’m having a couple from our church who sings Southern Gospel/ folk/ old country (we call them Johnny and June) sing this as part of the ceremony. 🙂

@GreenEyedMoon: “For the Beauty of the Earth” would definitely work!

@jazinlove I’m actually having it sung by the lady who sings/plays organ in the church I’m getting married at. She gave me a mini “concert” after mass one day so I could hear her sing it (she’s also singing “The Prayer” from Josh Groban) and I loved how she sang. 🙂 I’m going to listen to the version you mentioned, I’m sure it’s beautiful!!
