Recessional Song

Thu Feb 09, 2012 11:35 pm

My FH and I are struggling to find a recessional song we are trying to find a happy, lively, energetic song to celebrate our marriage! What is everyone using as there recessional song? Or does anyone have any ideas for me?

We are having a string quartet and will go with Viva La Vida by Coldplay - the words aren't great but the music alone on strings sounds pretty excellent!

We're having Love is all Around by the Troggs. Not the most upbeat song but we both love it and it didn't fit anywhere else.
We're both really indecisive so we had to shortlist songs and choose from there, here's the ones we ended up passing on.
Beautiful Day -U2
8 days a week - Beatles (this was a close second)
Walking on Sunshine
Happy Together - The turtles

And FH will kill me if I don't mention this one, he loved the idea of walking to It's the end of the world as we know it!

Have you considered the Glee mixup of Walking on Sunshine and Halo?
I really like Walking on Sunshine but love that version.

Even though it's still 18 months away, I already know our recessional song will be Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles. It makes me so happy :D

What about something current, pop like.
Feels So Close - Calvin Harris
You've Got the Love (chorus) - Florence and the Machine
What I Like About You - the Romantics
Burn Your Name - Powderfinger
Home - Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes

We will probably use one of those ^

We are thinking Sweet Disposition by the Temper Trap. I love that song and was considering having it for walking down the aisle, but it seemed a bit too fast. So we are using it for the recessional song instead :)

We had 'you're my best friend' by queen. It was an awesome choice worked perfectly!
