We used all these worship songs for one thing or another.

Your LOVE Is Extravagant, Beautiful One, We are Man and Wife, Jesus-Lover of My Soul.

 

We are Man and Wife was my favorite…I’m pretty sure it’s Christian.

I was gonna say, “How He Loves Us” but someone beat me to it! That song is amazing. We’re definitely using it in our wedding.

One of my favorites is “By Your Side” by Tenth Avenue North. My fiance and I will probably be using it as our first dance song. It’s absolutely beautiful.

I think a great song would be “Something Beautiful” by Newsboys! It’s an upbeat song, fun & happy & the lyrics are great. Here are the lyrics ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanna start it over
I wanna start again
I want a new beginning
One without an end
I feel it inside
Calling out to me

CHORUS
It’s a voice that whispers my name
It’s a kiss without any shame
Something beautiful(Yeah Yeah)
Like a song that stirs in my head
Singing love will take us where
Somethings beautiful

I’ve heard it in the silence
Seen it on a face
I’ve felt it in a long hour
Like a sweet embrace
I know this is true
It’s calling out to me

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
It’s the child on her wedding day
It’s the daddy that gives her away
Something beautiful
When we laugh so hard we cry
Oh the love between you and I
Something beautiful

REPEAT CHORUS

REPEAT BRIDGE

Something beautiful

Ask your organist or pianist if you’re having one

@Feebee – I like that song by Phil Wickham!

I think I am walking down the aisle to a live accoustic version “your name” – I am working with some guys on the worship team to put something together.. I really want to come down right after the electric guitar solo. ๐Ÿ™‚

For some worship I think we are having the band play, In christ alone.. and another song.. not sure yet. Maybe “Love came down” by Ben Cantelon 

It’s in the works ๐Ÿ™‚

Brandon Heath just came out with a new song…”Love Never Fails.”  It is so good.  I think we will be using it for the lighting of our Unity Candle.  I am going to have my cousin play it on the guitar and sing.  I was also thinking of “Unfailing Love” by Chris Tomlin.

Here is the list I’m using:
I’m having a friend play these songs acousticly during the ceremony

  • “Let us Love and Sing and Wonder”: Introduction
  • “Revelation Song” by Kari Jobe: Seating of Parents and Grandparents
  • “Your Love Will Never Change” by Dave Barnes: Our First Prayer as Husband and Wife
  • “My Savior’s Love Endures” by JJ Jeller: Unity Candle

Oh yes, and I totally agree with the Brandon Heath “Love Never Fails” song. We are definitely using that as well.

Matthew West has some AWESOME love songs!!!! One in particular is “The Day Before You.” Another suggestion would be to just go to his page on iTunes or wherever you can pull up his songs and just go through them to see which ones you like. I know this has already been mentioned but Brandon Heath’s “Love Never Fails” is an excellent wedding song as well as “Closer to Love” from Mat Kearney. Congratulations! ๐Ÿ™‚

Worship songs: “In Christ Alone” & “I Give You My Heart”

Song sung by FBIL’s g/f while we sign the registery: “When I say I do” (matthew west)

Recessional: “Slide” by the Goo Goo Dolls or maybe “Something Beautiful” by Needtobreathe

We are using “God gave me you” by Dave Barnes in the slide show.
