Here’s a huge list of ideas:


Usually the recessional is upbeat but you can use anything you want as long as it is approved by your minister. For example, if you are marrying in a church, you will only be allowed religious music.

@Ember78: Wait, we’re only allowed religious music if marrying in a church? Nooooooo!

I’m marrying in a church, and I’m allowed secular music. You should ask the church staff what is and isn’t allowed. It may even be in the contract that you sign with your church.

We ended up picking “I got a feeling” by Black Eyed Peas. It was the only one we felt was upbeat enough, even though we wanted to use it to enter out reception.
