- Sarah Chancey’s current favorite is “Gone, Gone, Gone” by Phillip Phillips. If you are wanting to go the traditional route, she loves anything performed by a string quartet. For instrumental covers of pretty much any song ever created, check out Vitamin String Quartet.
- Skylar Caitlin gushed that music speaks to her soul! It’s no wonder she chose such an upbeat and joyful song like “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles. She particularly loves the instrumental versions. Skylar feels like you can’t help but celebrate when you hear this song!
If you are on the hunt for the perfect exit song, think about what speaks to you and your fiance. Save “your song” for the first dance, but use a song that easily transitions your ceremony into party time. We suggest keeping it upbeat, giving your wedding party something to groove down the aisle to!
