If you are looking for wedding hymn ideas, you have come to the right place.

I personally love singing hymns at a church wedding. I think it stems back to when I was a little girl and all weddings took place in a church. I love the magic and mystery, and I love a good sing.

There lies the first important point. If you are opting for a church wedding with hymns, it is important that enough of your guests are willing to actually sing. We have all been to a wedding when the only person you can hear is the vicar.

Why not ask key guests to encourage participation, it will make all the difference.

The other way to encourage singing, is to choose songs that people actually know the words to. Sounds simple, but I have been to many a wedding where I would love to sing, but I truly don’t know the words.

Here are the top 5 hymns for a wedding, that everyone should know:

1- All Things Bright and Beautiful
2- Morning has Broken
3- Give me Joy in my Heart
4- One More Step Along the World I go
5- Lord of the Dance
