All You Need To Know About Wedding Exit Music

Congratulations, you did it! You are now officially married. The music you walk out to is known as Recessional Music and should be something joyous, uplifting, celebratory and most of all triumphant. This can be absolutely anything you like but should reflect the excitement you feel inside and is a good way to link the end of the official ceremony with the beginning of your reception / wedding breakfast.

The choice of recessional music is as huge as the Processional (Entrance) Music and can range from the traditional "Arrival of the Queen of Sheba" to the wonderful Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)". It can be live or recorded but mostly it should have a relatively upbeat temp. As already mentioned you can also have a look at the Processional Music (Entrance Music) as many of these songs work equally as well here.

Below are some song choices that you might like to consider but, as always, this list is not definitive or exclusive and should be used as a guide.


Lots of couples like to wait at the top of the aisle whilst guests exit so they have the opportunity to throw confetti as you formally exit the venue. This means that you could get away with choosing a couple of songs depending on how long you feel it will take everyone to exit.
