“The end is just the beginning” is ---a quote we often hear which is true. The end of a wedding ceremony does not mean that the special day of the couple has officially ended, because it depicts that this is just the beginning of a new journey that the newly-married couple will embark on together.

What are Wedding Recessional Songs?

A recessional song is the final or exit song that concludes a wedding ceremony. This marks the end of the ceremony and the beginning of a new journey. This is the one final, but memorable part of the wedding ceremony which marks the last day of the couple’s being single and their first day as husband and wife. You should not confuse it with the wedding processional wherein the bride walks down the aisle before the ceremony begins. For the recessional song, it is played when the married couple walks back up the aisle.

How to Choose Wedding Recessional Songs?

There is no certain rule when it comes to choosing the best wedding exit songs because it always depends on the choice and personality of the couple as well as the mood that they want to set. This can be either instrumental, upbeat, sweet, traditional or a lot more depending on the music taste of the couple. However, it is still very important to choose a beautiful and memorable wedding exit song as the right one adds meaning to this very special occasion and will uplift the mood of the guests after witnessing the union of the husband and wife.
