Before the wedding there’s lot to prepare for like fixing of wedding date, decorations, the cake ,song, the wedding gowns and Suits, with many more.
But today we will talk about the wedding song based on Catholic Church.
Doing the wedding especially in the Catholic Church not all types of songs are allowed, in preparation for the wedding you are expected to discuss with the parish on which song to play which will be OK with the reading and the preaching of the day for everything needs to be in order and interesting.
In the mass the song played are expected to accompany with what is happening in the moment .
- Doing the wedding processional the music have to be uplifting
- Before the homily, before the vows and sermon the music is to be sober
- Before the communion the music has to be joyful
- Then doing the wedding recessional the music is to be celebratory which makes the mass ends in cerebration.
Also your wedding song is required to be song relating to Christian faith, beautiful and known so that everyone can sing along.
