Wedding Recessional Songs - As Chosen By Music Insiders

You did it! You’ve both said “I do”, kissed and made it official. It’s time to start your celebrations by walking back down the aisle together to some awesome, super-happy music!

What better way to get things going, than with a euphoric song to dance down the aisle to together. Choose something you both love, that reflects you as a couple, and captures the happiness of the moment. So what’s your style: a song to skip to, a song to shimmy your shoulders to, or just a good old happy strut?

Whether you’re a dance-loving couple, want a chilled acoustic vibe or just love rocking out, there’s a track – and an artist – who can play it just the way you want. Think Pharrell in a gospel style, upbeat soul on piano, acoustic Beyoncé, or Little Mix on harp…These wedding recessional songs, performed by Alive’s acoustic wedding bands and ceremony musicians will give you ideas and inspiration for an awesome ceremony send-off.

Tip: Practice timing yourselves as you walk back down the aisle, and ask your musician to kick in with the verse or chorus, so you can hit the aisle at the perfect moment for full impact!

After they said ‘You may kiss the bride’, the whole place filled with this really upbeat, really good fun recessional song, which we danced back down the aisle to – it was brill!
