I’m from a fairly traditional rural congregation- this is what I chose:


Processional (Wedding Party): Trumpet Voluntary (Purcell)

Processional (Bride): Canon in D Major (Pachelbel)

Psalm: All I Ask of You (Priory)

Offertory: You Are Mine (Haas)

Communion: One Bread, One Body (Foley)

Recessional: Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring (Bach)


Puposely not using the bridal march…. not a fan

seating of family- jesu, joy of a man’s desiring

bridal processional- canon in d

presentation on flowers- ave maria

presentation on gifts- prayer of st. francis

communion- pan de vida

that’s all we have so far. i’m going to meet with my church’s musician soon, so hopefully she’ll have some good suggestions for us.

@celticbride:  If you are particularly interested in Celtic-influenced music, I’d encourage you to go to the World Library Publications website and listen to some of the music of the Notre Dame Folk Choir. Some pieces you might really like:

– O Mary of Promise

– Each Step of the Journey

– An Irish Blessing

– Arise, My Love

– Jesus, Be In Our Hearts

– Christ, Be the Word

They have tons of great stuff. Check out the album “Songs of Saints and Scholars” in particular.

I have a whole list of songs that came in the packet when I set my date at the church. I haven’t decided yet but did you want me to post the WHOLE list of choices?

 Edit: or if you tell me which songs you still need suggestions for (gathering, gifts, communion, etc.) I’ll just post those categories
