I’ve already discussed some musical ideas for the entrance to the ceremony, so how about we discuss some ideas for the exit or recessional?
The exit music is also an important aspect of a wedding ceremony; it will be the first thing you hear as you exit the ceremony as a married couple. Therefore, this style of music is usually quite upbeat and lively, and will set the tone for the celebration following the ceremony. However, finding the right song can also be a difficult choice, as you want something happy to share with all your loved ones, and something that will represent who you are as a married couple.
The selections I am sharing with you below are upbeat songs with many instrumentals that talk about love and happiness. I hope this will provide you with some inspiration!
Perfect to start the way to the cocktail – Lovely Day, Bill Withers
Similar style to the one above – Just the Two of Us, Grover Washington Jr
Let’s dance – Dancing in the moonlight, King Harvest
Entertaining – Starlight, The Supermen Lovers
To make everybody feel like home – Home, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Something that makes you want dance – Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Queen
My ceremony recessional song – Tout le bonheur du Monde, Sinsémilia

If you love dancing (and even better if your wedding is in September) – September, Earth, Wind & Fire
