For a detailed discussion of various wedding hymns and helpful information about how to use them in your ceremony, read this article. Which hymns do you think are most appropriate for weddings?, Which ones were used in your wedding, (what year was your wedding?), and where were they used in the wedding (prelude, ceremony, recessional, postlude)? Are there wedding hymns we don’t offer you think we should consider?
Our wedding music samples album, to be released December, 2010, will feature many of the best hymns from our site, and we would like to have a good cross-section of hymn samples from various faith traditions.
If you don’t have a hymnal handy, or can’t remember all your favorite wedding hymns, there is a post from June 8th entitled “89 Wedding Hymns” with a fairly lengthy sample list to jog your memory.
This doesn’t have to be limited strictly to hymns from long ago – we’re including in this category modern day hymns such as the Stuart Townend masterpiece “In Christ Alone”, and some songs from the last few decades that seem appropriate for weddings such as “Gentle Shepherd.”
