"What will everyone think of THAT song in THIS context". Will the guests be offended....will the venue managemement consider it inappropriate? The best advice I can give you is to FORGET ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE! This is your night! Play what you feel and FEEL what you play! I guarantee you'll remember the emotion. How do I know? I've been in the DJ Hire industry for more than 30 years and in that time i've been to thousands of weddings, seen countless brides pouring over what to play. Keep it simple....play what you feel and don't worry about what others think.

To the OP, I think you should run it by your Priest, because you don't want him to find out in the final stages (eg, when you're printing your OoS) and then have to change the song when it's the last thing you want to think about. We were going to marry in a gorgeous Church in Annandale, and were told we could only play classical music. It was in the early stages of our planning, so we went for a different Church with a more lenient Minister because I really wanted to walk down to The Beatles - I Want to Hold Your Hand.
