I think that it’s a neat idea. It keeps the focus on God, and He needs to be the center of your relationship. Make sure you don’t make guests feel uncomfortable…but usually at weddings people who aren’t religious seem to be ok with religious references.

I saw this done at a funeral and it turned a very sad experience into a religious experience that I will never forget…it will seem less forced and more appropriate and effective at a joyous occasion.

My fiance actually really wants to do this. We just can’t seem to make it work logistically. We will have a worship song sung during our Communion, and hope the crowd will join in singing.

I think that’s going to be awesome! My friends parents started out with a long set of worship and didn’t go into the actual wedding part until they felt like they had worshipped long enough. We’re going to do something similar, I think, except instead of worshipping at the beginning, we’re going to worship near the end, after the vows. We’re going to have people come up and pray for us and then go from that into worship, praising and thanking God in response to all He’s done for us (including bringing us together). I’m really excited about that part, too!

Ive been to a wedding that did this. I thought it was nice.. a few people were a little confused but just enough for a quizzical look and then they moved on.

I actually really want to do this too 🙂 

My fiance and I are going into the ministry, he’s studying to be a youth pastor. I really feel like such a joyous occasion, the happiest day of our lives, has to be focused on God, and what better way to do that then by celebrating through worship! 

I’m thinking about asking my brother and his wife to lead an acoustic worship set right after the vows. Any song suggestions?

Due to time constraints I don’t think I’ll have the time to do this, although I want to.  So, right now I’m hoping to have this done BEFORE the start of the wedding.  I’m also hoping that I can do a little worship session with my BM’s before the wedding.  

We’re going to be about 50% devout christians and 50% could care less about God. But, our friends and family know we are both devout to our faith and I don’t forsee it being a problem.

“Hosanna” by Hillsong United

“I Exalt Thee” by Jesus Culture

“How He Loves” by Jesus Culture (or David Crowder Band)

@Br1tSh1n1ngStar  Wondering how this went?  I am a photographer, but also lead worship at my local church!  I’ve always thought it ironic how there tends to be not much difference between “Christian” ceremonies and those that aren’t necessarily Christian, but keep with the traditional ceremony and include prayer etc.  The wedding SHOULD be a celebration focused on God, as the whole idea is that He be the center of the marriage!  It’s sad how much that concept is lost these days. 


Well hope it went well. Would love to hear an update!

 

Best,

PS: to all others reading, we just introduced How He Loves Us to our congregation last Sunday — was really powerful! What an amazing song…
