At the suggestion of Blackhawk, I'm repeating this here.

I'm playing for my sister's wedding in January and I'm still looking for music to play. I'll be playing for the prelude and postlude (possibly) and perhaps the processional and recessional as well. I'm conscripting the services of my future-sister-in-law on violin and I'll be playing uilleann pipes. So, I've some classical/baroque stuff we'll likely do, such as Spring (Vivaldi), Trumpet Voluntary (perhaps) and some Bach.

I've been given the following suggestions for hymns already:

Abide with me, fast falls the eventide
Amazing Grace
Be Still, My Soul (same music as Sibelius' Finlandia)
Be Thou My Blessing
Be Thou my Vision
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
His Eye is On the Sparrow
How Great Thou Art
I have decided to follow Jesus
In Christ Alone
In the Garden
It Is Well With My Soul
Jesus Loves me, this I know
Lead, Kindly Light
Morning has Broken
My Sheperd Will Supply My Need
O Perfect Love
O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus
Sing Praise to God, who reigns above
the chorus of Awesome God
The King of Love My Shepard is
This is the Day that the Lord has made
Wayfaring Stranger
We are one in the Spirit
What Woundrous Love
Whispering Hope
Eanach Chuin; Inisheer; Down By Sally Gardens; Carrickfergus

I'm interested in really good "wedding themed" hymns I suppose, as well as anything that has to do with love and all those other gushy emotions usually expressed at weddings ;)

I guess I'm also interested in some more suggestions of duets of classical music too.

For any of the above, I'd also greatly appreciate sheet music. (I know, I know, Karina, sheet music is evil :D )

I mean this completely in good humor, but if you want to give them a taste of what some days in marriage will be like, why not play "Master, the Tempest is Raging"? http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/m/a/mastertt.htm :)

More seriously, this site http://www.cyberhymnal.org/ does have lots of the scores for many of the hymns mentioned, though it looks like you need "noteworthy" to see them.

This one also has good hymns with the scores: http://www.hymnal.net/

My grandfather was a pastor. One Sunday morning, the songleader asked him what he wanted to sing, it being his wedding anniversary, and my grandfather gave a hymn number. When they turned to it, they found When the Battle's Over, We Shall Wear a Crown.

I think I would avoid "Abide With Me." Most folks are going to associate that with a funeral, not a wedding.
