The Beatles are a good option for the recessional song.  We toyed around with using “All you need is love” and starting it as the minister was announcing “Mr. and Mrs. …” so that he spoke over the trumpet part.  We decided that, although it would be funny, it might be a little much.  I’m not sure about the parent’s song.
