Commenting to follow, but also to say double check that here comes the bride is okay with your church. Some Catholic Churches consider it too secular to be appropriate for a wedding mass, but some are okay with it.

my roman catholic church allows pretty much anything for songs and is very… modern, i guess? our priest told us as long as it wasn’t death metal he was fine with it haha. here is a snapshot of the pdf/song list they sent me:

we’re doing air on the g string (bach) for the bridesmaids entrance, canon in d for mine, “the prayer” (celine dion/andrea bocceli) during some point and the exit song is a secular song my cantor sings during mass and its beautiful.

I was married in an Episcopal church, no here comes the bride, not because it’s secular but because of the context in the Wagner opera.  I used the the prince of denmarks March (clarke)…it was good enough for princess di.  For recessional, wedding March (mozart), bridesmaids processional canon in d (pachebel).

I did air for the grooms and bridal party entrance, canon in D for my entrance and ‘wedding march ‘ for our exit.  We had Ave Maria for signing of the register.

It was awesome because the church has a HUGE organ so the wedding march was quite intense for our exit!  We had a beautiful singer for ave maria

happygirl2016:  contact the organist, they may have standards if you don’t want to pick.  Or Google the pieces and listen on youtube…I wanted easy and traditional and then got all crazy at no here comes the bride…and I don’t even like the piece!
