FAQs

Christian wedding songs are very appropriate during a wedding ceremony. Christian songs are very commonplace during the unity ceremony, processional, recessional, and other activities encompassed in the wedding ceremony.

The wedding ceremony is when a couple professes their faith to one another before the Lord. Special Christian wedding songs can help signify the meaning of certain activities during a wedding ceremony in song. In addition, Christian songs can help portray the love for each other, the remembrance of a loved one, or a couple’s profession of faith.

Also popular during a wedding ceremony is playing Christian hymns. Christian hymns include Amazing Grace, All Things Bright & Beautiful, and Love Divine, All Things Excelling.

A Christian song has lyrics that align with the central teachings of the Bible. According to Webster’s Dictionary, a Christian is a person who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ. It follows that Christian music projects the teachings of Jesus Christ.

A good Christian song for a wedding has lyrics that describe your love for each other and supports your Christian faith. The perfect song choice is “One + One” by  Lawson Bates featuring Olivia Collingsworth.

Music is music. What makes a song Christian is the lyrics, not the style or genre of the music. Our best Christian wedding songs come from several genres including rock, jazz, and country.

Songs can be considered Christian without being sung by a categorized Christian artist. For example, a country artist like Carrie Underwood can sing a song that is both country and Christian. Her song, “Jesus Take The Wheel” is a good example.

Many categorized Christian artists have been accepted in mainstream radio.

Christian songs are appropriate for all the formal dances and cutting of the wedding cake. If so desired, Christian music can play during the wedding ceremony and reception. It is the bride and groom’s wedding and it is up to them as to the type of music they desire to have played at their wedding.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. ~Scripture. 1 Corinthians 13:4–8a (ESV)

Hi Nancy. We are currently working on a list of Gospel songs and will be released in September. You have 2 amazing songs for weddings listed. I am not sure which Freedom song you are speaking of but I know this Christian song is very popular – “Freedom” by Jesus Culture.

Hi Miranda. The song you are requesting is such a personal and spiritual moment. However, Lauren Daigle’s You Say may fit the moment.

I have 2 sons getting married this summer and I’m looking for mother son Christian songs ? Any suggestions?

Hi Peggy. Thanks for your question. First, I would have you check out our list of Mother-Son songs here: https://www.myweddingsongs.com/wedding-song-lists/mother-son-songs/. Second, try not to confine yourself to “Christian” only artists. Just because a song is performed by a non-classified Christian artist, doesn’t mean the song is not a Christian song. “I Melt” by Rascal Flatts has been one of the most popular Mother-Son songs the past decade.

Aren’t there any Christian love songs from more recent years? And some of these songs deal more with showing God’s love to the world rather than the love between husband and wife…

Hi Abbie. Thank you for your feedback. Yes, we need to add more current Christian songs and will be doing so in the coming weeks. You can also consider other genres. Just because a song is a Country or Rock song does not mean it cannot be a “Christian Song”.

I enjoy this list, but I have to say leaving off the original “God Gave Me You” by David Barnes and “Give me a Lifetime” by Anthem Lights is a bit of an oversight.
