I love that idea!  We’re going more traditional/classical (string quartet):

"Spring" from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons

and Handel’s "Hornpipe" from the Water Music Suite

We walked down the aisle to "Build Me Up Buttercup"  We had a few songs that are incorporated with the Angels baseball team and wanted to use them in our reception.  Build Me Up Buttercup is a song that is played during the 7th inning stretch after Take Me Out to the Ballgame and Darling Husband and I always put our arms around each other and sing it to each other ๐Ÿ™‚

My recessional will be "You’re All I Need To Get By: by Marvin Gaye and Tammy Terrell. It is cute, short and perfect for a wedding.

we recessed to an instrumental version of Viva La Vida.  I had my wedding in a church with a string twio, but it still sounded SO cool without being too casual.

We used Allegro Maestoso from Water Music Suite 2 by Handel.  We wanted to use the University of Michigan fight song, but we decided to save it for our Grand Intro. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh my goodness! I haven’t even thought about what recessional song we’re going to use!

We are using Barry Louis Polisar "All I Want Is You" Poeple recognize it now because it was used in the movie Juno.

We had an acoustic guitar/instrumental version of Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles.

It’s so funny… we think about all these songs and I remember hearing just one snippet of my processional (acoustic version of Bridge Over Troubled Waters) and just a snippet of the recessional… oh well!

Cool idea. =) We’re using Pachelbel’s Canon in D for our recessional.
