Music Monday: Recessional Songs That Rock

Everybody discusses what their first dance song will be, but what about the very first song that you’ll go hand-in-hand down the aisle to, as a newly married couple? The recessional song can be traditional, or it can be something upbeat and fun, signaling that the serious stuff is over and the party is about to begin. We’re partial to the latter!

Wedding wire recently published a rather extensive list of recessional song ideas that range from the classics to the completely quirky. From U2 to Shaggy, there is something for every couple. Want a song that will please all generations? Try a Vitamin String Quartet version of your favorite modern song. They’re the perfect choice for an instrumental tune that’s still jazzy!
