In honor of Mrs. Shortcake’s post today, my FI and I wanted to talk about doing something similar. I have a friend who is a dance team sponsor at a high school near here and she said we should just have everyone freestyle. Does anyone have any ideas for fun upbeat songs that everyone could dance down the aisle to? We want to make this fun and for anyone who knows me, this will be a complete surprise. The Recessional will be Beautiful Day by U2. Thanks!

I did a search at the song lists at weddingwire.com and all the processional suggestions are slow and somber. You could use any song you wanted. Any upbeat love song you like would work. What music do you like?

Most upbeat songs I know? ‘When Your Heart Stops Beating’ (+44) and ‘Here (In Your Arms)’ (Hellogoodbye) — they’re very bouncy, very poppy, and both love songs.
‘Going to the Chapel’ (The Dixie Cups) is quite upbeat — a bit of an oldie, swing tune. I can totally see everyone dancing up the aisle to this.
If you REALLY want to go all out, you might want to use ‘Waking Up in Vegas’ (Katy Perry).

Or you could always use ‘Forever’ (Chris Brown) like this couple: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-94JhLEiN0
(Though personally I am not a fan of Chris Brown right now, domestic violence and all. Yeah.)
