Hi! I just had to select all music for my wedding ceremony in a Catholic church, so I can definitely help out with this! Here are the options I had: 

Prelude (Seating of guests)
“Air” from WATER MUSIC. G.F. Handel
“Air on the G String” J.S. Bach
“Ave Verum Corpus” W. A Mozart
“Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” J.S. Bach
“Sheep May Safely Graze” J.S. Bach
“Canon in D Major” Johann Pachelbel
“Ave Maria” Franz Schubert
“Ave Maria” Bach-Gounod
“Not For Tongues of Heaven’s Angels” Jan Michael Joncas
“Love is the Boat for the Journey” traditional Irish tune

Processional (Bridesmaids song and Bride entrance song)
“Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” J.S. Bach
“Canon in D Major” Johann Pachelbel
“Trumpet Voluntary” Jeremiah Clarke
“Trumpet Tune” Henry Purcell
“God is Love/Trumpet Voluntary” Alan Hommerding and Jeremiah Clarke
“Hymn to Joy” Ludwig van Beethoven
“All Creatures of Our God and King”

“Mass for Our Lady Gloria” Steven Warner
Gloria from “A New Mass for Congregations” Carroll Thomas Andrews

Gospel Acclamation (select one)
“Celtic Alleluia” Fintan O’Carroll
“Gregorian Chant Alleluia” traditional
“Lenten Gospel Acclamation” Jan Vermulst – must select for services during Lenten season

Preparation of the Gifts (only for Mass)
“Love One Another” Tony Alonso
“Set Your Heart on the Higher Gifts” Steven Warner
“Blest are They” David Haas
“The Servant Song” Richard Gillard

Eucharistic Prayer Acclamations (only for Mass, select one)
“Gregorian Chant Acclamations” traditional
“People’s Mass” Jan Vermulst

Communion (only for mass, select one, or two for more than 100 guests)
“We are Many Parts” David Haas
“One Bread, One Body” Bob Dufford
“Gift of Finest Wheat” Omar Westendorf
“Ubi Caritas” Bob Hurd

Presentation of flowers to the Blessed Virgin Mary (optional)
“Ave Maria” Franz Schubert
“Ave Maria” Bach-Gounod

Recessional and Postlude (Bride and Groom’s exit)
“Hornpipe” from WATER MUSIC G.F. Handel
“Rondeau” Mouret
“Wedding March” F. Mendelssohn
“La Rejouissance” G.F. Handel

 I chose Canon in D for my entrance song, and Hornpipe for the exit. Trumpet Voluntary is also very popular for a bride’s entrance in a church. Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring and Trumpet Tune are good for bridal party entrances.


Hope this helps! 🙂
