    Since Easter falls so late this year, I'm also lucking out and having an Easter Season wedding... although especially awesome that you are having yours in the octave of Easter :)

    New Advent tends to be a bit wordy about pretty much everything, but these might perhaps provide some inspiration on hymns to seek out...

    On Paschal Tide:
    On the Easter Octave:

    The one "Easter" musical element that we'll be incorporating is doing an arrangement of "Regina Ceoli" (Queen of Heaven) during the presentation of flowers to Mary, as that particular prayer is said during the Easter Season instead of the Angelus.  All I've been able to find so far is a gregorian chant version (which I do like)... so I'll have my musician sister look for other options as well.

    Also, some friends of mine incorporated a Litany to the Saints into their Nuptial Mass instead of the unity candle or honoring of Mary.  I always love that part of the Easter Vigil Mass...

    You could look through some of the psalms and readings from Easter Vigil and see if any of them seem fitting for you two, as well!  There's plenty to choose from :)

    I have no input. Just wanted to say I am getting married the same day! We just me with Father Finn tonight and picked our music and readings.

    I've had friends get married during the Easter season. For them, the readings and music were the same as what would be chosen for any other nuptial mass. They did, however, take advantage of the church's Easter decorations and opted not to bring in any additional decoration.
