I have a song picked out for when my husband(!!) and I walk back down the aisle, but I’m not sure what to do for the wedding party. Do people just use the same song for the entire recessional? Or do I need to choose another song for them? And if so, suggestions?

One song for the whole recessional should do.
What song/music are you using for the rest of the ceremony? I think that would help people choose a good song for you 🙂

For the prelude, I’m doing a variety of Vitamin String Quartet. For the bridal party processional, I’m doing the VSQ version of “Just Like Heaven” by the Cure. For my processional, I’m doing the VSQ version of “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen. For the recessional, I’m using “Best Friends” by Queen. (The Queen songs are in memory of my mom.)

Just a heads-up: “Just Like Heaven” is actually a pretty dark song. The lyric-less version should be okay, though. VSQ is awesome!

@Statutory Grape: Yeah, that’s why I’m going with the lyric-less VSQ 🙂

It is typically the same recessional song for the newly married couple, the wedding party, and even the families. This is the “get to the party” music, and everyone moves pretty quickly! It’s generally followed by a couple of other up-tempo pieces for a postlude as your guests exit.
