What Are Your Offeratory and Communion Songs????

So, i thought that picking the readings would be hard - but now we're trying to pick offeratory and communion songs.  What songs did you guys choose?

    We are using "One Bread One Body" for our Communion song and "I Have Loved You" as a solo after Communion.  We where not told to pick an Offeratory song, I don't think it is common in my parish to include the Offeratory in a wedding mass, it wasn't mentioned to us by our priest or our parish wedding coordinator.

    "Saint Patrick's Breastplate" for the presentation, and "My Song Will Be With You Forever" for the Communion hymn.

    We also have "Lord of All Hopefulness" as an instrumental meditation song in there as a meditation song after the ring exchange. I specifically requested that be included, thinking we could use it as the song for the presentation of the gifts, and the music director suggested that would be the best place for it.

    We haven't completely decided-  but for offertory we are thinking of Holy Is Your Name (to the tune of Go Lassie Go) and When This Day is Done by Liam Lawton for Communion.

    Ubi Caritas for Communion and All That We Have for Presentation of Gifts. It was difficult for us to choose songs that weren't "funeral-ish"
