Wedding Music

Who answering, said to them: Have ye not read, that he who made man from the beginning, made them male and female? And he said: For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they two shall be in one flesh.

– Matthew 19:4-5

Planning Process

Wedding music planning is planned jointly by the couple and Sacred Heart’s Liturgy & Music office. The planning meeting will cover all music for your wedding. Liturgical music is based in scripture and draws the couple deeper into the celebration of their sacramental union in Christ. Singing hymns and responses by the assembly congregation invites all to offer praise and thanksgiving on this joyous occasion and together ask God’s blessing on the couple. It is appropriate for all present to sing certain parts of the Mass such as the Alleluia, the Holy, the Mystery of Faith and the Amen. Great care is taken that the choir/vocalist/instrumentalist, if selected by the couple, is integrated into the ceremony as a support to the dignity of the sacrament being celebrated.

INSTRUMENTALISTS AND CANTORS

Sacred Heart’s Liturgy & Music will make arrangements with excellent and experienced instrumentalists if these are desired. Outside musicians are not permitted without prior approval from the Director of Liturgy & Music.

GUIDELINES FOR SUITABLE MUSIC

Weddings in the Catholic Church are sacred celebrations of a love that reflects God’s infinite love for us poured out in Jesus Christ. All music used during the wedding ceremony should reflect the sacredness, sanctity and fidelity of the Sacrament of Matrimony in a manner that is respectful, dignified, and prayerful and within the guidelines of the Catholic Church. Music must be live; we do not use recorded music. Selections must be classical or hymns. We do not play secular music. The reception is the appropriate venue for secular music.

Please choose one of the following options for each section in the liturgy. As you make a selection, the next group will open. You can then submit your selections to us directly from the form.
