Here’s mine! All the music was done by a string quartet (with the exception of the responsorial psalm and gospel acclamation). We didn’t have a Full Mass, so there were no Communion songs.

Prelude: Ariso, Air on a G String, The Wedding Song (all Bach)

Seating of the Parents/Grandparents: Bach’s Ave Maria

Processional: Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring

Bridal Procession: Pachebel’s Canon in D

First Reading: Jeremiah 31:31-32a, 33-34a

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 33 – “The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.”

Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:31-13:8a

Gospel: John 15:9-12

Lighting of the Unity Candle: Bach’s Art Thou Near Me

Recessional: Handel’s Water Music

Postlude: Mozart’s Divertimento

Hope that helps!

We are doing an interfaith ceremony so I don’t have musical suggestions for you, but the readings we are considering are:

Tobit 8:-57Genesis 2: 18-24 

For the NT, we’re deciding btwn Hebrews 13:1-6 and Colossians 3:12-17.

We’re not having a Gospel reading or responsorial.

This site has a nice list of readings: http://www.saintpiustenth.org/pdfs/wedding_readings.pdf
