I haven’t been to too many weddings, but for the prayer bench/blessing portion of the ceremony, I was planning on having a family member since a song. English/Spanish. What songs are normally used for this portion. Not having much luck looking online. Should it be something about prayer, about the relationship or what about a modern worship song? Any ideas would be helpful. I don’t want anything too complicated or fast where it would be hard for her to sing the spanish version of a verse. She isn’t fluent, but she does have experience singing spanish songs. Any suggestions?

One suggestion would be The Prayer (Celine Dion has a version). It has an Italian section, but not Spanish.
Sorry, I don’t know any Spanish songs but here are some more suggestions that might help…
Forever Young by Bob Dylan
Any old hymns – Be Thou My Vision, I Need Thee Every Hour, etc.
Beautiful by Phil Wickham
Because of Your Love by Phil Wickham

I absolutely love “Esto los Digo” – it’s a beautiful Spanish choral piece that quotes Mathew 18:20 (“Whereever two or more are gathered in my name there I will also be”). I think the song is in 4 parts, but she may be able to just sing the soprano melody. The song itself isn’t hard and the words are fairly easy. Just thought I’d suggest it.

We used Oceans by Hillsong United and Hundred More Years by Francesca Battistelli. It was awesome. 🙂
