Okay so my coordinator contacted me and was like, hey i noticed you dont have a recessional song, its gonan be real awkward when you walk out in silence lol… so i had to go look hard and find one… i figure it needed to be fun. and i wanted something unique! I went with this song, totally love the movie and its quirky and different. whats yours?
I actually love this song, just not wild about the intro. 😋 Go for it! Hadn’t considered a recessional song since everything is in one place. But if it were needed maybe I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith.
we’re doing an instrumental version of “Home”. i know it’s a bit on-trend, but i went through a million recenssional songs and just couldn’t find one that really struck me. home was the closest – wanted something upbeat, that sounded good as an instrumental, but wasn’t crazy.
I think it’s fine and I like using less serious songs for things like this. However, my one nitpicky thing is that unless you’re a same-sex couple, I personally dislike songs that clearly single out a gender (i.e. “Girl you just don’t realize…” “Girl you got me thirsty…” “Got a bug from you girl…”) for something that is representative of the couple as a whole. It’s like it’s one person singing about how great the other is rather than celebrating how each feels about the other and their love together. Again, it’s super nitpicky. It’s a song I would totally rock out to at a reception, but feel like it was too one-sided for a recessional.
