Wedding Recessional Songs To Get The Party Started

February 23rd, 20242 min

Your wedding recessional song is not only the cue to your friends and family to rise and cheer you down the aisle, it also marks the very beginning of your married life! At FêteFone, we believe that after you say “I do”, it’s officially time to celebrate! That’s why we’ve put together a Spotify playlist of 15 wedding recessional songs to start the party.

Check out our list of wedding exit songs to get the party started!

How To Choose Your Wedding Exit Song

It can be challenging to choose your wedding recessional song, so we put together a list of things to consider:

  1. Reflect on your unique love story. Think about what genres you both enjoy and what songs resonate with you as a couple. Your recessional song can carry symbolic meaning in the lyrics, hold a special memory, or be something completely new that you find together.
  2. Think about the mood you want to create. Do you want to have a grand exit as newlyweds? Do you want to dance down the aisle? Or soak it in slowly hand in hand? Your recessional song should reflect the emotions you’re experiencing as newlyweds.
  3. Think about your venue. If your ceremony is in a traditional church, your recessional song selection may be different than if you are exchanging vows in a contemporary venue.
  4. Consider how the music will be played. Will your recessional song be played over speakers or by live musicians? If it will be played by live musicians, you may want to consult with them to create the exit of your dreams so you’re confident your wedding recessional song with land exactly as you expect.

If you have a large wedding party, you might want to have another song cued up in case the exit takes longer than expected.

After they’re down the aisle, your postlude music will accompany your guests as they leave your ceremony. Keep an eye out for our favorite postlude music playlists in a future edition of our Audio Guest Book Insider’s Guide!
