I think this would be darling for a recessional song, joyful, upbeat and so very appropriate:
The early verses are about coming back and having done foolish things, but if you started in the middle with the happier verses, it’s perfect I think!
What will you use for your recessional song?
Next week I’ll be picking up on Wednesday (got a long weekend!) with some more Music Ideas for you! 🙂

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 🙂

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 will walk out to ‘Two of Us’ by the Beatles!
Post # 8
We’re having a couple of friends perform "I second that emotion"
Post # 9
I am using My Sweet Love by John Mellencamp.

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. 🙂

Oh my goodness! I haven’t even thought about what recessional song we’re going to use!
Post # 12
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.

I think I’ve finally picked out my recessional song…
Hallelujah -by- Paramore.
It’s an awesome song and I think it would be awesome to hear after we’re pronounced husband and wife. 🙂
