Some of the greatest Catholic Wedding Hymns transcend denominational distinctions and are loved and cherished by many if not all branches of Christendom. Indeed, many are great hymns of the faith apart from any connection with weddings, but are especially applicable and meaningful when included in your marriage ceremony.

If you are helping to plan the music and are looking for more popular Catholic wedding hymns, consider these:

This is a beginning list. We’ll be doing more research, adding to this list, and perhaps removing that aren’t as important as we receive feedback. Some of these are not really Catholic Wedding Hymns per se but “songs” that might function like hymns for your ceremony. This will differ from church to church, depending on how traditional the ceremony and how much leeway is given to the couple in choosing their wedding music.

It’s really not possible to separate out hymns that are from the Catholic tradition, any more than we can the Protestant, Orthodox, or Anglican, so to call these “Catholic Wedding Hymns” may indeed be true, but they may as well be loved and cherished in many other faith traditions.

If you read this post and have more suggestions for my list, by all means PLEASE comment below; I know there are many gaps in this Catholic Wedding Hymns (and songs) list that is in process.
