There are many ways to go about deciding on your wedding recessional music.
First, always consider your venue.
If your ceremony is to be held in a church, check with the clergy to see if there are any rules or restriction regarding the music for wedding ceremonies.
If your ceremony is to be held outdoors, find out if there are any restrictions, such as, noise level or types of music that can be played.
For a very formal wedding, you will probably want to stay with the more traditional recessional songs.
However, many brides are choosing very lively and easily recognized songs for their recessional music to help get everyone in the proper frame of mind for the reception.
The bride and groom kiss and are pronounced husband and wife! They begin their walk back up the aisle as a married couple.
This calls for a 'full of life' song to be paid. Nothing too slow!
The song chosen for the recessional will help the mood for the reception. So, you want to set a happy, joyous note for all your guests.
Below are traditional and modern recessional songs that can be used in your wedding.
Many of these songs can be used in other parts of the ceremony too.
