We are having a full mass for our ceremony and we’re trying to decide on the music. I know for sure I want:
Lady of Knock
I am undecided about the other 2 songs. Can you please share the songs you selected and for which part of the ceremony they were played? Thank you!

I’m from a fairly traditional rural congregation- this is what I chose:
Processional (Wedding Party): Trumpet Voluntary (Purcell)
Processional (Bride): Canon in D Major (Pachelbel)
Psalm: All I Ask of You (Priory)
Offertory: You Are Mine (Haas)
Communion: One Bread, One Body (Foley)
Recessional: Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach)
Puposely not using the bridal march…. not a fan

seating of family- jesu, joy of a man’s desiring
bridal processional- canon in d
presentation on flowers- ave maria
presentation on gifts- prayer of st. francis
communion- pan de vida
that’s all we have so far. i’m going to meet with my church’s musician soon, so hopefully she’ll have some good suggestions for us.

@celticbride: If you are particularly interested in Celtic-influenced music, I’d encourage you to go to the World Library Publications website and listen to some of the music of the Notre Dame Folk Choir. Some pieces you might really like:
– O Mary of Promise
– Each Step of the Journey
– An Irish Blessing
– Arise, My Love
– Jesus, Be In Our Hearts
– Christ, Be the Word
They have tons of great stuff. Check out the album “Songs of Saints and Scholars” in particular.

I have a whole list of songs that came in the packet when I set my date at the church. I haven’t decided yet but did you want me to post the WHOLE list of choices?
Edit: or if you tell me which songs you still need suggestions for (gathering, gifts, communion, etc.) I’ll just post those categories

I don’t think you can go far wrong with Loves Devine All Loves Excelling

@KCKnd2: Thanks- that sounds perfect! I will definitely check out the ND Folk Choir!
@Woodstock: I’ve got a lot of ideas from this post so far! So maybe if you could just post some songs they suggest for the seating of the family and the offertory, that’d be great!
@Snoopadoop: Thanks for the suggestion!
