Recessional Beach Wedding Songs

The Beach Wedding Songs you chose to walk back down the isle to after the ceremony should reflect a sense of joy and celebration. You and your sweetheart have exchanged your vows and you are now married! It is time to celebrate!

Beach Wedding songs for recessionals

This part of the ceremony (if informal) can be combined with the confetti ritual. If you want to do this, then ask your officiant to tell your guests to get their confetti, petals or bubbles ready and to form a tunnel behind the chairs at the exit of your little "church" area.

Then while your guests get ready for you, you can sign the register. As soon as you are ready to walk down, give your band, DJ or designated Ipod DJ the signal and walk through a shower of confetti while an upbeat song announces your joy at being finally married!

You can choose from several different types of songs. Generally you should match your exit song to your entrance song, so if your whole ceremony was classical, then try and keep it to classical. Of course there are no hard and fast rules though and this is your wedding, so do what makes you happy!

Here are a few examples:
