I don’t have any R&B suggestions (aside from maybe “Happy” if you aren’t sick of it by now, lol) but I just wanted to commiserate. FI and I had the worst time picking the recessional song, even though every other song was a breeze. We’ve currently landed on “Everything is Awesome” from the Lego movie since we couldn’t agree on anything else!

We are using “You & Me” by lifehouse, but obviously that’s not R&B.

I kind of like some of the verses from Jagged Edge “Let’s Get Married”, but it’s not really upbeat.

We’ll be using “I Want You” by Luke James. Originally we were thinking Happy but we’re both kinda over the song. lol

ahough2:  I just started going through all my songs I have saved on Youtube until I stopped on one I thought was fitting. Not R&B but I like it. 

Tie It Up by Kelly Clarkson

We used the theme from Game of Thrones. Not at all traditional, I don’t think we could call it upbeat, more victorious, but it was perfect for us.

We used Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder (just the chorus).  It is an older song, but I had never heard it at a wedding ceremony before so it was unique for us.

We are having a string trio play music for our ceremony, and have chosen Craig Armstrong’s “PM’s Love Theme” from Love Actually, which is my favourite movie.

We have had the same problem. We don’t really “have” any songs and find most of the popular pop songs a bit too young for us.

Our recessional is going to be “If I Could Give You More” by Harry Connick Jr. Its super peppy and fun and all the lyircs are perfect, plus its a perfect kick off to our cocktail hour that starts immediately after we say “I do”
