Gospel and Christian Wedding Songs: 50 of the Best

Christian wedding songs are a brilliant way to have a Christ-centered day - here's 50 of our favourite choices from your first dance to walk down the aisle


If you’re having a Christian wedding, you’ll likely be marrying in a church and having hymns during your ceremony. But there’s plenty of other times during your big day when you can honour your faith with gospel and Christian songs.


There’s so many modern worship songs and Christian artists that are ideal for your walk down the aisle or first dance. You’ll find beautiful ideas for your father daughter dance, and to play at moments like the signing of the register during your ceremony and even Communion, if you’re having it.

Using songs that speak to you and your faith, or have been the soundtrack to your life and relationship, is a wonderful way to personalise your wedding day. If you having a favourite piece of scripture read, it’s beautiful to echo that in your ceremony song choice. There’s also plenty of brilliant Christian-pop tracks that you can sneak into your wedding reception playlist.

Couple dancing at their wedding reception

Remember that you won’t be able to play anything with religious connotations at a civil ceremony and you’ll need to provide your song choices beforehand for them to vet. Similarly, your church may want to see a list of the music you want to play and some can be quite strict.

Below is our pick of the best Christian wedding songs and Spotify playlists so you can decide your favourites.
