Advent is a season of preparation so that Christ may be birthed into our lives and into our world. As a result, it is important to keep in mind that music has to remain simple and should not anticipate the full joy of Christmas. Just as the sacred space builds by adding a little something each week as the Church moves closer to Christmas, so too can its music.
Weddings that take place during Advent should maintain the integrity of the season. When assisting couples in the preparation of the wedding liturgy, music ministers should introduce them to advent hymns and carols, and encourage their use in the celebration.
