I can’t help with the music part, sorry.  As for the readings, I am pretty sure that since it is in a Catholic Church you would still need to do readings from the bible.  Have you met with a priest or a deacon from the church yet? Usually, they give you several to choose from.

I think you can choose whatever you want from the Bible.  As for other readings, I know it can be done depending on the reading but it may depend on your priest, church, etc.  and you would need to ask them first.

You’ll have to pick them from the Bible…most churches will give you a reccommended list of readings to pick from, but if you have one or two that you really want to use you could probably substitute them as long as they relate to faith/weddings/families/marriage.

Sorry, can’t help with the music thing!

We received a handy little book from our church with approved options for all the different parts of the wedding ceremony (readings, gospel, psalms, vows, etc).  It did say in the readings section that the texts listed in our book were not exhaustive and that other readings could be chosen will approval from the priest.  However, one of the two readings must refer to marriage.  If you want, pm me and I’ll list the actual passages that are recommended in our booklet for you.

We got a booklet that was kind of like a workbook for the ceremony. I actually was suprised at the amount of choices we could make.

I know exactly what song you are talking about and we actually sang it recently at mass, but I don’t know if it was called that or something else. Sorry.
