  • Wedding: June 2014

MrsUPS:  We will have several songs, mostly hymns, as our prelude.  One of the hymns will be a congregational hymn for everyone to sing.  Here is our list:

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, It Is Well With My Soul, Great Is Thy Faithfulness, How Great Thou Art, and our family/wedding party processional will be “Beautiful Things” by Gungor, which is contemporary Christian.  Our congregational hymn will be My Hope Is Built.

MrsUPS:  We had Lord of all Hopefulness and Guide me o though great Jehovah which everyone sang and were chosen by me. The rest of the time the organist played what he wanted (except for entrance and exit)

If you pick hymns, make sure they’re ones your guests will know. It was tricky in our wedding as my family are terrible singers and DH’s are French speaking! Lucky the vicar was an enthusiastic singer! 🙂

MrsUPS:  We went with the very traditional (in England) Wagner’s Bridal Chorus and Mendelssohn’s Wedding March.

donna_saur:  Thanks. I’ve always loved Guide me O… but they played it at my Grandma’s funeral so my parents thought it was a bit inappropriate for a wedding. I went for it anyway because I had always imagine having that at my wedding and I think it changed their sad associations to happier ones. I discussed it with our vicar and he said he couldn’t think of anything more appropriate to the huge commitment we were about to make than asking God for guidance!

LaPetiote:  Great Is Thy Faithfulness was played at my grandfather’s funeral, about a month and a half ago, so it’s still a little raw.  He was a huge influence on my life and one the most amazing people I have ever known.  Truly a privilege to be his granddaughter.  Sounds like we have a similar story!  🙂  Thanks for sharing!

  • Wedding: April 2013 - Valparaiso, IN

My uncle, who is the worship pastor at his church, played various Christian music for the prelude, he played How Great Is The Love for when our parents and grandparents were ushered in. For the bridal party entrance, including my entrance, he played Wanted by Hunter Hayes. He led the congregation in singing The Stand and Revelation Song. We had the song Love Never Fails by Brandon Heath play during the sand ceremony. And we walked out to God Gave Me You. My list of music is quite contemporary.

donna_saur:  My Grandma’s funeral was in 1987 but they still associated that hymn with that. They’re not regular churchgoers (I became a Christian a few years ago) so probably hadn’t heard it since.

She was the first Grandparent I lost and I was only 7 so my memories of her are vague. I have her wedding band which she wore for over 40 years though so I’ve been feeling closer to her recently. Hope our marriage will be as longlasting as hers.

Sorry about your Grandfather. Will you have some mention of him in your wedding?

LaPetiote:  We will have pictures and my cousins, his other granddaughters, will all be involved in some way.  He and my grandmother were married over 60 years!  I pray that my marriage is even a fraction as loving and wonderful as theirs was.

  • Wedding: July 2012

MrsUPS:  We has a violin and piano play a bunch of songs before the ceremony. During the ceremony we had a couple sing “When God Made You” by New Song, and DH and I say “God, A Woman, and a Man.” My husband also sang “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds to me. Recessional we had one of DH’s students break out his ukelele and sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World” and I believe he snuck the song from Juno in there 🙂

Not sure on all of them yet and what we’ll use where but for our worship song I wanted to do “Pour My Love On You” by Phillips Craig and Dean–I’m having a very symbolic wedding and so bc I view our wedding as having three people, me, future husband and God–I wanted a song to God as well. We’re also using All My Life by KC and JoJo (not a typical Christian artist but the song is blatantly Christian), I Will Be Here by Steven Curtis Chapman, Now and Forever (don’t know the artist offhand). Still picking others for the reception, walking down the aisle, etc
