@TopazWedding:  Your recessional was my processional!  I’ve never heard of anyone else using it; the church was gracious enough to order the sheet music for me.

Our recessional was “Love Divine, All Loves Excelling.”

My processional is “Bridal Chorus” by Wagner then “Canticle of the Sun” for the Gathering Song 😀 The recessional is “Now Thank We All Our God” <3!!!

@JKL2013:  Have you checked with the priest/music director at the church on the Wagner? A few Catholic churches will allow it, but many of them won’t. Just a head’s up so you don’t get an unpleasant surprise down the road if they tell you “no.”

I’ll make sure since it’s still 8 months down the road. I’ve been at that church before for a wedding and the bride there had Wagner so… hopefully it’ll be ok. If it’s not, it’s not the end of the world 🙂

Haven’t actually planned the music yet, but I’m hoping for the processional to be “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by Bach.  On the piano of course.  I’ve sung it a lot at mass when I cantored and I think it’s absolutely beautiful.

I see OP is married already, but thought I’d throw my two cents in:

Prelude: instrumental selections, “Great is Thy Faithfulness”

Mom’s processional: Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring

Wedding Party: Canon in D

Bridal Processional: Trumpet Voluntaire

Recessional: Ode to Joy
