    I want to know where I can find out the legalities of playing secular music in a church wedding service.

    Great question, Charlli. With any church, the particulars of musical allowances can be varied and particular to denomination, governance and approval. Some churches simply do not allow secular music, while others may allow some selections performed by their musicians or outside musicians with approval. A good rule of thumb is to avoid assumptions and approach the church with respect and generosity of spirit. Remember, you are entering their sacred space, their spiritual home. So approach with reverence and without expectation. Typically, the bride and groom meet with the presider and are given the parameters of what can take place within the parish as soon as the date is confirmed. If they are unaware of the possible restrictions you may reach out to the director of music or the presider. However, most details should be given to the couple prior to the planning process. Restrictions and allowances can differ from church to church, so always confirm your song selections in advance. You may need to learn a hymn or two in order to accommodate them. Please keep us posted and best of luck to you!

    The factor of variety related to the instructive manifestations has in addition some worth and it isn't irrelevant. Creation should be changed after around fourteen days with the objective that understudies may constantly find something new.

    It is your life and you should do what will make you happy. If you don't want to marry someone you don't know then don't do it.
