10 modern wedding recessional songs

Before you get married, one of the most important (and often overlooked until the last moment) tasks to do is choose your wedding music. Read on to see our list of the best modern wedding recessional songs.

Couples often focus on the processional song, thinking about what they’ll be hearing when they first see each other or while one is walking down the aisle. And while this is extremely important, so is the recessional song!
