The selection of wedding hymns is one of the main ways you can personalize your religious service (since if you’re getting married in a church, you may not be able to write your service or your vows from scratch).
So if you’re having a church wedding, we’ve rounded up some wedding hymns beloved by the APW community, along with a few other hymns we just flat out love. Call this our best wedding hymns roundup, and use it to get to work on making your wedding ceremony feel like your own. (Please ignore how cheesy many of the You Tube videos are, this is just to give you a reminder of the tune.)
how to choose wedding hymns
When selecting wedding hymns, think about hymns that have some relation to your wedding ceremony thesis (what does marriage mean to the two of you?), hymns that will set the tone for various parts of the service, and hymns you just flat out love… a specific relationship to love and marriage is in no way needed. We haven’t divided these wedding hymns by denomination, but have instead divided them by style, figuring you’ll pick hymns that are familiar to your religious practice.

I mean, how do you go about hiring someone that you know you’re probably going to cry in front of at least once?
Choosing vendors you instantly feel comfortablewith—like crying, arguing with your parents, needing them to zip up your dress comfortable—is key.…
