One of the most common questions during the wedding arrangements is "What music is allowed for a Catholic wedding?". Because of the sacred nature of the ceremony, there are restrictions as to what is and is not allowed to be played.
Secular music is not permitted before or during the ceremony. Although some songs may hold a special significance to your family or to you as a couple, they might be more appropriate for your reception.
So what can be played at your wedding?
There are many other beautiful hymns and instrumental music that would be appropriate selections for your ceremony. This document not only makes suggestions for each part of the mass, but also provides links to the YouTube videos for most of the songs listed.
We hope this is helpful as you prepare for your wedding day!
