Walking down the aisle

30 fabulous wedding exit songs

Looking for the perfect track to walk into married life to? We've got you covered!

So, you’ve got to the ceremony on time and you’ve said ‘I do’ to the love of your life, now it’s time to party! But before you can head to your reception venue and toast your nuptials you need to take your first married walk together; down the aisle.


The walk out of the church or ceremony room will be a momentous one and so it’s only natural that you’ll want to choose a song that reflects how you really feel.

Recessional songs are all about personal taste, for some couples a meaningful and romantic piece of music is simply perfect and for others an upbeat party track is a must! Whatever your taste, we promise we have a suggestion for you.

You can choose to play the track directly from Spotify (just make sure you upgrade to Premium for the day to avoid those pesky ads!) or ask your string quartet or wedding band to play your chosen music live. Either way, your guests will love the personal touch involved in choosing a track that is perfect for you as a couple.

From contemporary chart hits to old classics and classical pieces that will make your day seem like a fairy tale, the choices really are endless. In fact, there are so many great options that you’ll probably find a few pieces of inspiration for your reception drinks and wedding breakfast soundtracks too!

To make it extra easy for you to decide on a song, we’ve put together a Spotify playlist so you can give them all a listen and get in the mood for your ‘I dos’!
