Apologies, Hive! Yesterday ran away with me and I never posted my music idea of the day (*smacks myself on the wrist*).
So, today you get TWO ideas to make for a great ending to both your ceremony and your reception!
From the first time I heard this song, I thought about it playing in this context. How awesome would it be for bride and groom to burst out the doors of their ceremony location, delighted guests in their wake, to the exhilirating beat of this amazing song?
I think I’ve mentioned my affinity for faster-beated last dance songs (though I have some ideas for slow songs, too that I’ll share!). I love this song for a last dance not just because it’s faster but because it is SUCH a sweet, upbeat sentiment on which to end a wedding.
Other ideas for these two “ending” songs, or anyone want to share theirs?

Love them! Again, if I was not having a Catholic Wedding, I might end with Beautiful day!!!

Those are both awesome ideas, I really love that U2 song. We’re having “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys as our postlude. The FI wants Unchained Melody as the last song of the night but I thought that might be a little too slow, so no idea yet!

We’re thinking of these as our last dance with our guests
1) “Advice for the Young at Heart” by Tears for Fears
2) “Do You Realise?” by The Flaming Lips
still trying to figure out the recessional song…

Recessional: I love Ob La De Ob La Da by the Beatles but even though he’s a big Beatles fan, he thinks it’s not traditional enough.
Last Song: Last Dance by Donna Summer

Not sure about our last dance, but I’m thinking about ‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight’ (Elton John). Not dead set, but it’s definitely a contender.
