Wedding Planning Tools



 
Wedding hymns are traditional pieces of music, beautifully written, often uplifting and are typically used to help involve the guests in a way in which no other element of a church wedding service can match.

 

The inclusion of wedding hymns in the marriage ceremony is not essential, but it does add an increased level of spiritual meaning – dare we point out that they also increase the length of the ceremony helping you to get ‘better value for money’, and also add extra entertainment to the proceedings – there we’ve said it!

 

Normally, up to three hymns can be incorporated into Christian church wedding ceremonies, featuring at the beginning, middle and end or the service. However, all of this is at the discretion of your officiant, so make sure you check out what wedding hymn options are open to you before making the final decision.

 

There are many hymns to choose from, some popular, some modern, others less familiar and more traditional. However, unless the vast majority of your guests are deeply into their religion, then it is probably best to steer away from the more obscure hymns, unless you want to be the only ones singing that is! You'll find that even with the words right in front of them, if guests have no idea of the tune then they normally mutter there way through the verses or worse still, mime!

 

Shown below are some of the more popular wedding hymns chosen by couples for their ceremonies:
