Wedding Music Suggestions

Prelude (Generally choose 4, including one for the seating of the mothers)

When choosing songs for the prelude we suggest trying to try to tie one or two into the scriptures you have chosen.  The letters and numbers before the song title correspond with the letters and numbers in your yellow “Together for Life” book.   

This list is suggestions only and is certainly not all-inclusive.  In Church, however, keep in mind that your selections need to be sacred in nature.

Entrance Chant and/or refrain after vows

As soon as the bride’s procession is over a short Entrance Chant is required.  You may sing the refrain of the Alleluia, or the refrain of your responsorial psalm in either of these places.  You may also choose another refrain. This list gives some appropriate suggestions but is not all-inclusive. The goal is to get people to participate, so singing something familiar is good, or singing something in more than one place is also good.  

ie: if you have a song sung in the prelude and then repeat the refrain after the vows, people will have heard it.  Or if you sing the same chant after the procession and then again after the vows, they might participate. Similarly singing something they do know, like the Alleluia after the procession and again for the Gospel verse, or the responsorial psalm again after the vows also adds to continuity.  I will help you with this when we meet.

Visit to Mary’s Altar

This is optional.  If you have a devotion to Mary, you may take flowers to Mary after Communion and a song to Mary is sung.  If you have no particular devotion to the Blessed Mother but your Mom or Grandmother really wants to hear the Ave Maria or other Mary song, we can have the Mothers seated to one of these songs before the processional and this usually makes them happy.

Offertory/Communion

(choose 1 offertory song and 1 communion song)

Communion songs should be able to be sung by the congregation.  Offertory songs are not as restrictive, so a piece from the Prelude list may be used at the Offertory.
