Using Dodi Li for prelude music?

Kayla, on March 5, 2022 at 9:31 AM Posted in Wedding Ceremony 0 1

I'm having a Christian ceremony at my church (Methodist) but trying to include a few Jewish elements since my FH's entire family is Jewish, which my pastor is open to. We will be having a string trio for our music so it will all be instrumental, no vocals. He and his parents don't seem to know anything about Jewish music traditions beyond the music used for dancing the hora. The pianist found a piece called Dodi Li that musically seemed to fit well with the other 4 or 5 pieces we will have for the prelude music that is played before the processional while everyone is coming in and getting seated. My question is whether this is an appropriate place to use this music. Without having any knowledge of how this piece is usually used, I just want to make sure that I'm not using it inappropriately. While FH's immediate family doesn't seem to know about these things, there will be several other Jewish guests there from his extended family and parent's friends and I want adding this to feel inclusive rather than offensive. I've tried researching it, but the most I've found is one page that simply says it is popular for processionals, which wouldn't be exactly how we'd be using it.
