Funny Wedding Walk Out Songs: Top Picks

Last Updated on December 28, 2021 by Guillermina

Today, we’re going to be looking at funny wedding walk-out songs. Once the ceremony is over, you’ll want a song that’ll make your exit as memorable as possible. While most couples opt for something romantic or sweet, there are lots of couples that want something light-hearted and funny. You may be unsure what to choose, so we’ll be taking a look at funny wedding songs to walk out of your wedding too.

What Is A Wedding Walk-Out Song?

A walk-out song for a wedding, otherwise known as a wedding recession is when the happy couple makes their way back down the aisle, as their first act of marriage. The guests will go wild and follow behind, and usually take photos and throw confetti. A song is usually playing as you make your exit, and you want to choose something memorable that’ll leave your guests smiling.

How To Choose Your Recessional Song

It’s important that your recessional song reflects who you are as a couple. If you’re naturally both a serious couple, it may not be best to opt for something funny. Something light-hearted or romantic is always a good choice, or something from a Disney film is also a good option.

If you’re a couple that doesn’t take life too seriously, why not opt for a funny walk-out song? After an emotional ceremony, it may be nice for your guests to cry with laughter. Here are some of our top choices.

One of my favorite choices from this section is Marry You by Bruno Mars. With lyrics such as,

“It’s a beautiful night, we’re looking for something dumb to do
Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you
Is it the look in your eyes or is it this dancing juice?
Who cares, baby, I think I wanna marry you”

It sounds sweet and light-hearted, but the lyrics are funny and very tongue in cheek.

“I’m never gonna look back, never gonna give it up
 No, please don’t wake me now,
This is gonna be the best day of my life”

My favorite choice from this section is without a doubt, The Greatest Show. The opening, “Ladies and gents, this is the moment you’ve waited for”, couldn’t be more perfect to start your exit. Later in the song, the lyrics such as,

“Don’t fight it, it’s coming for you, running at ya
It’s only this moment, don’t care what comes after”

are suited to any wedding and will certainly have all your guests on their feet singing and dancing. Even the younger guests! I know my niece and nephew love The Greatest Showman.
