Wedding Music

Wedding Music Suggestions
Choosing music for the wedding liturgy can be one of the most rewarding tasks of your wedding preparation. Music is more than a decoration to the ceremony – it is an integral part of the rite, just like the prayers, readings, and actions. Music has the power to convey the depths of God’s love for us, to unite the assembly in song, and to express the worship and prayer of those who gather to celebrate this joyful event.

Book your Sacred Heart musicians several months before your wedding. You will have a meeting with them to select the music and to hear what it will sound like on the instruments in church.

To aid in the planning of your wedding, a list of music is provided below. If you would like to listen to a sample of it click on the title. (Some of these aren't the best recordings so please ask your parish musicians to play the songs for you during your meeting.) When you are done listening, use the back button of your browser to return to this page.
