The Wedding Song Comments

  • Great Wedding Song

    I had it sung at my wedding 34 years ago (1978). My daughter is getting married in 3/2013 and I am going to surprise her by having it sung at her wedding. I have always loved this song...

  • God...creator of marriage!

    I am having a friend play the guitar to this song while a lady from my church sings it while we light the unity candle. I can't think of a more perfect song! I cried the first time I heard it. It's just a reminder to all of us that God has always been and still is the creator of marriage. And with Him my fiance and I will still be happy and in love 50 years from now.

  • It's been a long time since I played it

    but recently a couple requested it for their wedding. I think I will be playing it more often now. Atlanta Sound & Fury Entertainment

  • great song

    I am 14. My friends asked me to sing this at their wedding I had never even heard of it until I looked it up on youtube then got the lyrics off of this website. This is a good song.

  • I lost him

    My BF favorite song.When he sang this song I was cried and I felt how much he love me.He promised at our wedding day he will sing this song and this will be our bridge to have a strong relationship.But now he left me without saying anything..How can I move on if I still standing with this song...and God knows how much I love him...I hope someday he will find me again and he will sing this song...I am still waiting until now that someday he will come back...

  • It worked for us

    38 years ago today I had this song sung at my wedding. I managed to get a 45 and I play it every anniversary. My daughter thought it was so neat, she had it for her wedding 6 years ago.

  • Its for a lasting Love

    23 years ago this song was played at my wedding. It still brings tears to my eyes. Its not always been a bed of roses, but this song can put me right back to that day. I still love it, and him of course.

  • engagement announcement

    I especially love the line "A man shall leave his mother and a woman leave her home and they shall travel on to where the two shall be as one." My son recently got engaged to a girl in the military. She will be deployed soon for 8 months and they will get married when she returns. Then they will move far away, where she will be drydocked for two years. He is living at home until she returns. I am using this quote to start my announcement of their engagement. It is perfect.

  • Great One Lost

    I know that Peter wrote this song and performs it alone, but he was part of the group that included Mary. She will be deeply missed, but her music will carry on for years. Every kid growing up know 'Puff the Magic Dragon', and many adults sing (at least in their minds) Leaving on a Jet Plane whenever they are at an airport. The Wedding Song was to be sung only once, but has become one of the standard songs sung at many weddings.

  • Our Reception Music

    Bev and I, in 1971, included Peter Paul and Mary's rendention of The Wedding Song in the music for our reception. To me the lyrics accurately state God's part in a marriage. We are still married.

  • Wedding Song

    I had this song sung at my wddding 26 years ago, and it is still one of the most loved songs. It tells the whole story.

  • Love

    This song was played at my parents wedding. My uncle played it on his guitar and sang it for them. They don't know it yet but I'm going to have him do the same at my wedding for a surprise. They won't know until he starts playing ... I hope they love it

  • beautiful

    This song is beautiful, if I was a christian and getting married I would definitely want this at my wedding. It's so sacred it gives me chills.

  • We are still together

    Our music school teacher sang this at our wedding.We have been together since 7th grade and are married now for 36 years. We play this saong on our anniversary to remind us of our love and obligations to one another. We had a huge wedding, but the song was a very important part of it.

  • Mother's song & now mine

    My mom used this as her wedding song. Every night before me and m little sister went to bed we asked her to sing it to us. We learned the words over the years and now I am using it in my wedding.

    Brielle 2008-10-05

  • Version Two

    We had this sung at our wedding and now 35 years later my dughter is having it done by the same family member at her wedding. Sure covers 'somethng old.'

    I am a kid that i 9 doing a search for a wedding song and this is the #1 place!

  • ummm...

    umm maybe this song was a hit in the 70's but not for today. You spend like the entire song on the same about BORING. I've been trying to learn it to sing at a wedding, and I can't even get through it once...let's hope that I can sing the whole thing with out falling asleep on stage...

    Kate 2008-01-03

  • It STILL works for us!

    We just celebreated our 20th anniversary. We have dear friends that run a karaoke show and I found this song in their list of available songs. Well, I sang my bride this song and even if my voice is a bit croaky, I wasn't too bad! It was quite a night!
    It is the perfect song -- for the wedding day and every subsequent one when the day is celebrated!

    Marc 2007-11-08

    I couldent think of a better song than this, the lyrics are emotional and heart felt

    Jessica 2007-06-30

  • one of the best

    I grew up hearing my Daddy and Mother sing this song, so naturally it's one of my favorites and will definitely be played (by them, Lord willing) at my wedding if indeed I get married.
    The other one I fell in love with because my Daddy sings it, is called "The Warmth of Your Eyes."
    Truly great songs!

  • I Need the Instumental Track For This Song

    My wedding is coming up in July and Chris and I want his Aunt to sing this song during the unity candle lighting and signing portion of the ceremony but I cannot find the instrumental track for this song if anyone could help me that would be great!

  • This Song is Love in Its Truest Form

    I fell in love with this song the moment I heard it 30 or so years ago, and find I love it more each time I hear it. It is truly love in its truest form, expressed perfectly with music. Please buy a copy of it from Mr. Stookey's non-profit foundation - it's another way of sharing the love he shows us with this wonderful song.

  • Great

    My dad sang this song and recorded it for my cousin's wedding, we could not be there. My sister took the CD he made and used it for when they lit the unity candles. Boy did it surprise him! It was a good thing that we told him at the rehearsal, there were a lot of waterworks!! It was great!

    Holli 2006-11-27

  • So Real

    A lady sang this song at my wedding, and I thought it was the most beautiful wedding song I ever heard. It really defines true love and it's so poignant.

    Julie 2006-11-17

  • A true classic.

    This song was done at my wedding in 1995 and I've been singing and playing it at weddings before, after and presently. Truly a beautiful classic.

    Jimmy Rivers 2006-09-18

  • a song that lasts

    I heard this song for the first time at a wedding in the 70's. I've loved it ever since. My son is getting married this summer; over 30 years later, the song still has great meaning!

    Sandy 2006-08-03

  • After a hundred times this time was different

    But this morning I woke up with this song running through my head. I didn't really know all the lyrics. Playing the song and following along with the lyrics, I began to gush, in no small way, for the first time. What's that all about?

    James 2006-06-11

  • A wonderful Christian song

    This is a great choice for those who are Christian--it really reflects our values.

    Christy 2006-02-24

  • Beautiful

    This is a must during a wedding ceremony. It was played during our candlelighting ceremony.The union of two souls in marriage is a blessed event. This song says so much more that so many "shallow" wedding songs out there.

    Lisa J 2006-02-09

  • Needing the music

    I think this song is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. I have the lyrics, does anyone know where I can get just the music? I need the music for some other songs that will be sung at my wedding in three weeks. I'm deperate. Does anyone know where to find just music cd's to sing to?

    Lori 2005-12-19

  • memories

    Everytime I hear this song it reminds me of my own wedding, today my daughter picked to play it at her wedding. It's a true meaning of unconditional love.

    Terrie 2005-11-25

  • A Classic

    I had this song at my wedding 28 years ago and my daughter is being married in July 2006 and she is having it at her wedding. Once a beautiful song still a beautiful song

  • Amazing

    I plan to have this song played during the lighting of our unity candles in our November wedding. It will be the only song played. Its the only one I want played. It melts my heart.

  • true meaning of marriage

    I've heard about this song from my parents my whole life. I love the lyrics and wanted to use it, but they couldn't remember the artist. This is exactly what we've been searching for!

    Bethany 2005-08-26

  • All Time Best

    I think the lyrics of this song are truly the best ever written for a wedding in a church. It tells of the situation in every way and when sung and played bt Paul Stookey it truley comes alive. We are using it for a friends wedding in November and she cry crocodile teers when I introduced it to her.

    Barrie 2005-08-25

  • memories

    Was sang at my wedding 25 years ago.

  • true unity

    I have always loved this song, especially since it was written and sung in 1971, the year my husband & I goit married. When our daughter, who is getting married this year (2005), called ans asked for suggestion for a song to be played while the unity candle was being lit, this the the first one that came to mind. When] she heard it, sha was pleased.

    millie 2005-05-03

  • true marriage

    the very simple statement of believing in something you've never seen before, the references to beautiful passages of scripture-this is what i want to sing for my daughter and her husband.

    teresa 2005-04-22

  • The Best Of The Best

    I needed the lyrics for this song I chose to sing at a Christian friend's wedding that's coming up in 4 days because in my opinion it's the best, most emotional love/wedding song I've ever heard. When properly sung I cry every time I hear it. Thanks so much!

    Rick 2005-02-10

  • Sappy I Think Not

    One of the most beautiful and sweet songs I have ever heard.
