What songs did you choose for your ceremony?

We went with Matthew West's "When I Say I Do," 

But also very heavily considered "My Tribute."

Okay, now you go!

    So far, we've decided on "A Page is Turned" by Bebo Norman, "Love Is Not A Fight" by Warren Barfield, "Love Never Fails" by Brandon Heath, and "When I Say I Do" by Matthew West.

    For the moms/grandmothers, I'm hoping to use "The Parent's Prayer" but I can't find a performance version that I like...I might have to find some sheet music and see if one of our friends can do it...if anyone knows of any versions that sound great, please let me know. :)

    We had a worship band play while everyone was being seated (so about 1/2 hour before the ceremony began.  They played and sang a lot of contemporary worship songs (I don't know which ones since I wasn't there!)

    During the ceremony we had Honestly and All of Me by Stryper.  DH was a huge Stryper fan back in the day and the words to both songs are great for a wedding.

    We will probably have very traditional stuff for the grandparents, parents and bridal party as well as here comes the bride for me and my dad.  We are planning to play "You Had Me From Hello"  by Kenny Chesney at some point during the ceremony.  Then the traditional ending song.  We will have all the traditional stuff played on the piano by my high school chorus teacher who was my inspiration to become a teacher.  I have also been considering buying or burning a country love song cd to have played low as guests are entering.

    We had "A Page is Turned" too! We had some friends of my hubby's sing it as a duet. To me, there was no question about having it, as it is one of my all-time faves--and when we listened to our wedding CD it made my hubby tear up a bit.

    P.S. I got married three weeks ago yesterday and am LOVING married life so far. I wish this board had been around when I was going through the planning process! Hope everyone's planning is going well and that the time goes quickly till your big day--but don't forget to enjoy engagement, too :)

    We're going with Canon D for the processional.  Then during the Cord ceremony (instead of unity candle/sand) the song Hallowed  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jOD1iApFPE Then, I am not sure where in the ceremony, we will have Agnus Dei: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXvIaaPIrlM

    I have no idea what we will do as we leave though?  I am going to need to go through ya'lls songs and maybe steal some! ;-)

    We still have to look through our brass quintets' books and FI's books from weddings he has played, my bridesmaids will be entering to Canon in D on the handbells and I will be entering to wedding march on handbells (I play handbells among other instruments and he plays trumpet) Our exit will probably be trumpet voluntary I was going to use that for my entrance but he thought it made more sense to enter to the music that represents my background

    Are you having a live trumpeter to play Trumpet Vol?  I have heard it that way many times as I used to work at weddings, and it is amazing, you should reconsider entering to that, wait until the trumpet goes into forte and then take your first step down the aisle, it is breath-taking.  Although, your handbells will probably equally as beautiful.

    I was thinking of Canon, Trumpet Vol, The Prayer by Andrea Bocceli and Celine Dione, and Grow Old Along With Me, but I also love Jesu Joy, and One Hand One Heart, it's going to be hard to decide I guess.
