Question 23: We have a favourite song that we would like to use at our wedding. Can we use it at the Church? -
So as to highlight the religious dimension of the wedding, church regulations recommend the use of proper church music. Music that is written to be sung in church is the most appropriate kind of music for the church. (Music that is written to be sung elsewhere is best sung elsewhere.) There is a lot of wonderful and worthy church music written for weddings that will be known to your singer(s) and/or musicians. If you have a favourite song that is not a piece of church music, why not considering having it at your reception, e.g., to be played as you walk in at the reception in the hotel, or alternatively for the first dance.
