- Wedding: September 2013
I am a Christian and my Fiance is Atheist. We are getting married in church, but the majority of people who will be there (about 92 of the 95 invited) are non-Christians or non-church goers.
It is important to me to get married in church but it is equally important to not make the people who are coming to our wedding feel uncomfortable.
I have sorted the Bible reading (Book of Ruth) but am getting stuck with the hymns. I want them to be upbeat and happy, as it is a celebration, and there are a some hymns that mean a lot to me. However, a lot of these hymns are about choosing Christ as your saviour, and placing all your faith in God.
I don’t think it is fair to make non-believers sing these. I am picking one, just because it means so much to me (In Christ Alone) as I sang it a lot when working for a Christian charity abroad. However, I need one or two more hymns and am getting stuck on this.
Can anyone think of any upbeat hymns with slightly different themes? Am I just overthinking this?
