Are you wanting formal/fun/? Our recessional is going to be "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)" and I’m thinking of having the bridesmaids walk down to "Love Story" by Taylor Swift.

I’m doing the instrumental version of Love Story from Jon Schmidt once it’s downloadable! It leads into Viva La Vida which is all really lovely

we are having "its a wonderful world" played – however its on the harp so sounds more ‘traditional’

I really wanted the instrumental from Forrest Gump.  It’s so pretty and unique!  But my fiance thinks it sounds too much like Terms of Endearment and nixed that 🙁

We are doing an instrumental version of U2’s "Beautiful Day" by Vitamin String Quartet for the bridesmaid processional and and instrumental version of The Beatles "Here Comes the Sun" for the recessional. I still have no idea what I want to walk out to.

How about some Beatles? Lots to choose from. A couple that come to mind: ‘And I Love Her’ and ‘All You Need is Love’

All you need is love is my recessional! All fingerstyle guitar though. So lovely and fresh

I’m using "Stolen" by Dashboard Confessional for the recessional.  Not sure why this song struck such a good chord with me but I just love it!

We are using "In My Life" by the beatles for the processional, I’m walking down to "Love Me Tender".  Both played by two of my family members who will be playing guitar, harmonica, possibly fiddle.  I also have many string quartet albums of familiar artists, like pink floyd, radiohead, coldplay, they have tons of them.  That’s what I’m playing while people are being seated.  It is kind of fun, pretty music but most younger folks will recognize the tunes.  itunes sells a ton of vitamin string quartet albums, that might be a good bunch to look through.

  My bridesmaids walked down to "Lets stay together" by Al Green and we used 311 "Love Song" for our recessional.

  My sister’s recessional will be "Ain’t no woman like the one I’ve got" by the Four Tops. We don’t believe in traditional music!

There are lots of Beatles songs that would work though! Like "I want to hold your hand" but there’s tons more.

Our recessional was "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Michael Buble…..it’s so upbeat, fun and very fitting!! =)

I was going to use Bittersweet Symphony for processional, but I’m just not totally feeling it for whatever reason.  What I really want to walk to is "So Here We Are" by Bloc Party, but I’m not sure it has the staying power and impact needed for a walk.

I’m helping my boss with her wedding songs.  If you don’t know it, listen to 1,2,3,4 by Plain White T’s.  It’s new to me, but she already knew it.  When she played it for me in the office I knew she had to use it in her wedding.  I think that’s what she may walk in to, but it could be good for the bridesmaid’s entrance too.  Now I’m on the lookout for a recessional song that would match it but be a little more upbeat.
