We are meeting with our priest tomorrow to go over our readings and then we have to meet with the music director to pick music. I’m wondering though, are most weddings the tradtional wedding march, etc? Or have Catholic brides picked other music? Can you tell me what songs you picked for the different parts?

There are a few other posts where Catholic Bees have discussed their music choices:
catholic entrance songs
Catholic wedding music…
Hope these help!

I got my traditional wedding march, no problem at all.
We also had the song “Walk Hand and Hand” and “The Irish Wedding Song.”

Woohoo music! My fave part of the wntire wedding planning process. My church didn’t allow secular music UNLESS it was instrumental–but that’s OK cause we used mostly old songs anyway. You should have quite a bit of leeway when it comes to picking your music, just keep the general rules in mind (http://catholicweddinghelp.com/topics/catholic-wedding-music.htm) and see what your parish is cool with as I’m sure some are more lenient than others. Here are ours–
Prelude: If Ever You Were Mine (modern), Si Bheag Si Mhor (trad)
Entrance: Jesus Christ the Apple Tree (Poston), Air on the G String (Bach), Prelude to a Te Deum (Charpentier)
Gathering: For the Beauty of the Earth
Exit: The Rejoicing (Handel)
