Christmas carols and hymns are the natural choices for Christmas weddings. However, you must make sure that you know how to draw a line between the Christmas day music and Christmas Wedding Music. In the era of digital music, you can become unique by hiring choral groups that dress up in period clothing and sing original or authentic carols of that age as a musical treat for your wedding guests. Other music numbers that you select for the Christmas wedding party can be quiet and romantic strewn in between Christmas carols and love songs that double up as dance numbers too, to make your Christmas-themed wedding interesting. You can also take services a children choir along with a harpist and a pianist to play Christmas songs live. The children can be dressed as little angels, flower girls and chamber boys.
For cocktail hour, you can choose to play a tasteful mix of Christmas and classical music. If you have hired an orchestra to play live numbers, they can also use hand-bells for soothing tinkling sound as an addition. Those who love gentle seasonal melodies can use the album 'Christmas on Guitar' by Giovanni Di Chiaro as the background music that has a collection of popular Christmas carols such as 'Oh Holy Night', 'It Came upon a Midnight Clear' and 'Silent Night'. If you find sound of a harp soothing, you will love 'Christmas Favorites for Harp' by Roxanne Ziegler. Albums and CDs presenting string quartets, traditional classics and oldies are also favorites among those opting for Christmas weddings. Here we have given you few popular Christian wedding songs.
Popular Christian Wedding Songs
It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold:
"Peace on the earth, goodwill to men,
From heavens all gracious King!"
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing.
Still through the cloven skies they come,
With peaceful wings unfurled;
And still their heavenly music floats
O'er all the weary world:
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing,
And ever o'er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.
O ye beneath life's crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow;
Look now, for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing;
Oh rest beside the weary road
And hear the angels sing.
For lo! The days are hastening on,
By prophets seen of old,
When with the ever-circling years
Shall come the time foretold,
When the new heaven and earth shall own
The Prince of Peace, their King,
And the whole world sends back the song
Which now the angels sing!
- Edmund Hamilton Sears
By Heart, By Soul
If you were a road
I'd learn every turn till,
I could find my way with my eyes closed
If you were a song
I'd sing along till,
I knew every word and every note
But you were everything to me
You're the Love I live to see
By heart, by soul
That's how I want to know you
Keep you as close as
Breath is to life
Wanna watch your love unfold
By heart, by soul
If you were a place
I'd stay my whole life till
I had every corner memorized
And if you were a star
I'd follow you home, you would be,
The Light that is my only guide
You were everything to me
My A to Z
You're the Love that's lives in me
I wanna know you inside and out
Better than I even know myself
If you were a star
I'd follow you home by heart by soul !
