Come singalong...

Choosing wedding worship songs are nothing like choosing songs for cell group or gatherings etc. Songs that are dear to our hearts somehow don't quite flow in a wedding context :P

An example?

A favourite hymn, "It Is Well With My Soul".
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
when sorrows like sea billows roll;
whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

Refrain:
It is well with my soul,
it is well, it is well with my soul.


Umm... not so appropriate.

No wonder why the past few church weddings we attended all sing the same songs. The only hymn that we can think of that's suitable is "The Love of God", and we've sung it plenty of times.

in such circumstances, one way is to skip the verse which you think is inappropriate. another way is to re-write your own lyrics for that part..
the easiest way is to choose another song.. haha
