I went to a wedding this past summer and the song they played for their recessional was an oldie, but it was very upbeat and fun. I am looking for a similiar song… but I am stuck thus far. My FI and I liked Im Yours, but the chorus has the word d*** in it. Since our ceremony is taking place in a church this was out of the question. The song will just be played on a CD so my options are endless, it just needs to have church appropriate lyrics, but can be a secular song. Any ideas?

I think we’re planning on "Happy Together" by the Turtles.

IDK if something like this would work for your venue, but we decided to do "Going to the chapel".. it always puts a smile on my face

HannahT, we’re recessional twins! Me and my FI are also walking out to the chorus of "Happy Together."
One band you may want to look into is the Vitamin String Quartet. It’s just strings, no vocals, and they play a lot of instrumental versions of popular music. That way no one can complain about the language because, well, there is none! Good luck!

Good call on the recessional song, MsAnnaLytical!
I love the brassy sound of the chorus–it’s so celebratory!

I second Vitamin String Quartet! Just look them up on iTunes, you’ll get hooked. I love "All You Need is Love" too! Good idea, Quiche 🙂

My DH and I walked to "Life is a Highway" by Rascal Flatts. Upbeat, fun, and an appropriate song as we took our first steps down the highway of married life, which we’re gonna ride all night long 😀 (wow that sounds cheesy…haha)…

If you want "Im Yours" for your song, you can probably find a version of it with that word silenced out. Either go talk to your local radio station (they probably do it all the time), or go to a store that specializes in music recording equiptment or something like that. I’m sure they can edit the song for you. 🙂 Good luck!

Our song is Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen. We wanted something upbeat but unexpected.

We are using Stevie Wonder "For Once in My Life"
When I hear the opening …I imagine it starting to play right when we kiss! 🙂
I am really excited for this part of my wedding. I think it will fit perfectly
