After the nuptials have been read, the register has been signed and the couple have been pronounced husband and wife the celebrations can begin. The newlywed couple will walk out of their wedding ceremony to a recessional song or piece of music that is usually upbeat and happy. The recession song chosen by the bride and groom should reflect on their relationship, and can be something they associate their lives with, or something more traditional, but familiar to their wedding guests. Some couples choose to walk out of their wedding ceremony to a love song, or a song where the words have a meaning to their relationship. It would be advisable at this point to choose a recession song that is a little bit longer than the other songs chosen during the ceremony. During the recession it’s not just the bride and groom that need to leave the ceremony, but all of the guests will follow them out of the church or ceremony room, making this song choice one that needs to keep flowing.
