I guess I had no idea you weren’t “supposed” to have lyrics? We’re using one song for the entire processional and it has lyrics.

I walked down with lyrics and I loved it. It meant alot to me to know I chose the song for what it said and everyone could hear it

@GonnaBeMrsC:  TBH, I don’t think I’ve ever seen it done, either, but really, we’ve never seen a secular ceremony or handfasting, either, but we’re still doing it.

At the wedding I just went to they played a song with lyrics. It didn’t seem odd to me. Use a version with lyrics if that’s what you want!

Yay! I’m glad I saw this post! I’ve been thinking about this lately too. I want to use “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri, and I too chose it for the lyrics. The instrumental version is beautiful, but I would love for all to hear the lyrics because they’re meaningful. Great to know I’m not alone! 🙂

I am also using lyrics. We are doing an acapella song – so ALL lryics! We are using Everybody’s Free from the Romeo and Juliet movie with a live choir backing up 2 of my Maids singing the main melody and harmony.

@GonnaBeMrsC:  Our processional will have lyrics as well.  I say go for it!

Yeah my processional is a choral song, so it definitely has lyrics.  I didn’t know that “no lyrics” was a thing?

I’m using a string version of a song that originally has lyrics, but only because, while the music is lovely, the lyrics are SO inappropriate. I reckon there’s nothing wrong with lyrics if they suit the occasion!
