For those who are Christian and looking to have a religious wedding (or even a secular wedding), what you choose as the soundtrack to your big day matters. Music may be one of the most important aspects of a wedding, and personally choosing a playlist for your ceremony and/or reception—especially one that honors your culture and beliefs—can seem like a daunting task. While it may be tempting to let your DJ or band do all the work, it's best to come up with a list of tunes that will establish the general vibe you want to create and the type of music you prefer.
If you're Christian, you know that marriage is considered a sacrament. It's not only a day of devotion to your partner but also to your faith. That said, your wedding music should reflect this theme. Luckily, there are tons of songs that express the love you and your partner share while highlighting your belief in God's love as well.
To inspire you, we rounded up 65 Christian love songs for your wedding ceremony, reception, and beyond.
