Recessional Song?

Recommended Posts

I want a fast, fun, love song to play during recessional...I originally wanted "Beautiful Day" by U2 but, a friend of ours that got married 2 weeks ago (in Playa) had this as hers....don't want to copy her. She had "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and we are too...that one is not negotiable.

 

Ideas?

I just posted this on another thread...let me cut and paste....

 

Okay, here's the part about the recessional....

 

We going to go with "I'm a Believer" by Smashmouth (from the Shrek soundtrack) as a recessional. It's a fun, upbeat song, and also has significance for us because one of my nicknames forl Matt is "Shrek" (I think he sorta looks like him....and I mean this in the most loving way possible....I happen to think Shrek is really cute with his bald head and little ears...just like Matt!) What do you think? See siggy pic below?

Martha, I am getting married in a church so I am using classical music for my processional however we wanted to celebrate our original island location with the somewhere over the rainbow, but I think using it as a processional would be great!

hmm we also thought about using God Bless the Broken Road as a processional.

What about hiring a trio or mariachi band and just have them play for both?

I think we are going to use the Mariachi's during cocktail hour.

 

I think we can use "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang. Is that cheesy? I need to run it by Jay first.

I've posted this elsewhere, but ours is "Such Great Heights" by the Postal Service, but I also like "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO and "Big Blue Sun" by Adrian Belew (both cute and upbeat). Maybe Modest Mouse "I Will Follow You" might be cute, too.
