So I was told the recessional is supposed to be fun or somewhat upbeat. Not having an easy time finding something I LOVE. I don’t really want an older song, I feel like everyone over uses them. My mom loves the idea of Bruno Mars, “MARRY ME” and I love Bruno, but FI says the lyrics are stupid. (Lol) I have looked through all of his other songs, but they are either too slow or has something sexual in it, which well… maybe okay for the reception, not okay for the ceremony. I like Jason Derulo’s Marry Me, but that song is sort of a pre-proposal song, do you think that will matter? Any other suggestions for R&B or something similar? I’m using an acoustic Boyce Avenue cover of 1000 years for precessional. If that helps. I kind of want something mellow, yet upbeat.
I don’t have any R&B suggestions (aside from maybe “Happy” if you aren’t sick of it by now, lol) but I just wanted to commiserate. FI and I had the worst time picking the recessional song, even though every other song was a breeze. We’ve currently landed on “Everything is Awesome” from the Lego movie since we couldn’t agree on anything else!
Lol! I know, I can’t believe I am having such a hard time with the recessional, I picked out all my other songs for ceremony and main dance songs. I love lifehouse too! I should maybe look at some of their songs. It doesn’t have to be r&b, I am just thinking something along those lines. 🙂
We have had the same problem. We don’t really “have” any songs and find most of the popular pop songs a bit too young for us.
Our recessional is going to be “If I Could Give You More” by Harry Connick Jr. Its super peppy and fun and all the lyircs are perfect, plus its a perfect kick off to our cocktail hour that starts immediately after we say “I do”
