- Wedding: December 2017
We are currently on the hunt for a ceremony venue. I have always wanted a church wedding but am open to other options. As we make our decision, one major “con” in the church column, is the common stipulation banning secular music from the wedding.
While I certainly understand why this rule exists, there are a few songs I would love to include that are “secular”. I put this in quotations because while they are not at all religious, some don’t even have lyrics, and I would like them all to be played on the piano & cello. So no lyrics would be heard at all! They include: Love Actually Glasgow Theme (no lyrics any way), and A Thousand Years (Piano Guys version – again no lyrics), I Can’t Help Falling In Love with You.
I am trying to get a sense for how realistic it might be to have these included. Have any bees gotten secular songs approved at their church? If so, what songs were a yes? Do you think it makes a difference that the songs would be without lyrics? At that point they are practically classical music, though admittedly non religious.
