Selecting Wedding Music

The beauty of the wedding ceremony is greatly enhanced by music. Nevertheless, a wedding is not a concert. First and foremost it is a liturgy and a sacrament of the Church. As such, the selection of music must reflect liturgical appropriateness. Any vocal music MUST be of a sacred nature. Instrumental music also must be in a style that is appropriate for liturgical use. This document is intended to explain the purpose for each musical selection and suggest some pieces which would be appropriate. You may request music that is not listed.
