Congratulations! You are now married!! Now you get to walk back down the aisle and head to paaaaarrtaay! Now you can, of course, walk back to the traditional recessional march. But if you’re a little more non traditional, like myself, you might want a little something different!

So I have gathered a list of 23 songs that you could walk back down the aisle to.

You should only need 1 song unless your aisle is super long and like always you can always repeat the song. You shouldn’t really need to practice this one, just make sure that however much time you needed for the processional you don’t have less than however long that song is.

So here it goes..

  1. What an awesome list of songs you have here. So many on here are songs I LOVE!!

  2. Nice list! I love I’ll Be by Edwin McCain. I didn’t have a wedding song since i got married at the courthouse… But I would probably choose that song 🙂

  3. Great songs, these, and something a bit more modern than the traditional ballads. We had classical music playing during our wedding.

  4. These songs perfectly describe the moment especially during that part of the wedding! I love the songs on the list!

  5. UB40 almost always plays at the wedding recessional. It’s a good one! I like the list.

  6. Great list of songs! I remember when my brother got married, he wrote pretty much all the music. Loved the personal touch.

  7. All of these songs sound wonderful. I never really thought that there would be so many choices.
