Pop Postlude Songs

Pop Postlude Songs

The postlude part of the wedding might not have the same grandeur as the prelude or the solemnity of the processional. But being the part when the guests exit the ceremony area, it’s the perfect time to inject some more upbeat music. And this collection of Pop Postlude Songs definitely fits the bill.

Who can deny the musical wit of Walter Murphy with his modern, disco adaptation of the 19th century melody genius Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony? Although this rendition was released back in 1975, it has never lost its touch.

Or how about the ‘Frank Sinatra’ of the modern generations, Michael Buble. Although known for his revivals of old classics from the ‘ol blue eyes’ himself, Ray Charles, and other timeless voices, the song ‘Everything’ brings to mind how the spouse is all we need.

The young and very talented Gavin DeGraw might have sung a lot of songs but three of them are pretty perfect for the wedding postlude. “Chariot” talks about admiration with words such as ‘Oh chariot your golden waves are walking down upon this face’. “Follow Through” is a song about how the relationship grows after the big I Do’s – ‘Since you wanna be with me, you’ll have to follow through with every word you say’. It’s about making promises and keeping them. “In Love With A Girl” is a mellow rock song that expresses how the guy is in love with a girl who knows him well.

The tale of Romeo and Juliet might seem tragic but at its core is a story about a love that can withstand all. Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” certainly carries on with that theme. It’s catchy and it’s memorable. Just like what pop postlude songs should be. Another catchy Taylor tune would be “Our Song”. It tells of memories, sweet nothings, escapades, and other things that make you look back and smile. That’s what a theme song should be.

Colbie Caillat with her soothing voice has got plenty of proper tunes, too. “Brighter Than The Sun” tells of new beginnings and how fate brings people together. The lively melody and rhythm has just enough upbeat and doesn’t go too far. It’s a wedding, after all. “I Do” might sound like a song that should be sung during the processional but Colbie puts a fun twist to the rhythm. There’s plenty more from her discography, but these two are the top pics for cheerful postlude music.

A couple of ‘I do’ songs from two different groups of two different eras make up this ensemble. 98 Degrees might have made you swooning with their looks but you can never deny their great voices, too. “I Do” has become a staple song in many weddings and you can hear it being played even during the prelude or processional portions. ‘In a world torn by change, still with all my heart, ‘til my dying day.’ No other song could have said that better.

For lovers of the classics out there, Abba takes it up a notch—as expected from the group. They can get the entourage and the guests in the right mood with their song “I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do”. ‘Love me or leave me, make your choice but believe me, I love you, I do, I do, I do, I do.’ That just doesn’t get old, does it?

The list of pop postlude songs is a great collection of tunes that will make your guests dance, smile, reminisce, and just plain be happy as they are lead outside the church. No wedding will be complete without a song or more from these great hits that have become favorites through the years.

Modern Wedding Ceremony 101

Welcome to the Wedding Reception Planning series. This video series we’ll discuss the various parts of a typical American wedding reception. Furthermore, I strive to provide you the information you need to help plan the wedding reception of your dreams.

Traditions

There are a lot of great traditions in American weddings that you can choose to celebrate. What I love to share with couples is that they can honor those traditions. Or modify an existing tradition. But best of all they can start their own family tradition.

Wedding Introductions

In this article we will be talking about the traditional wedding introduction. You can be introduced into the reception several different ways. Often depending on the type of reception you have chosen. Let us look at some common ways you can be introduced at your wedding reception.

Short Wedding Intro

You may want to introduce just the two of you! “Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen, on behalf of our bride and groom we thank you for joining us for this joyous occasion. I ask you all to please rise. (pause) It gives me great pleasure to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Newly Wed!
 

Wedding Introduction of Bride and Groom
Triumphant Bride & Groom!
 

There are a few reasons why you would choose to introduce only the bride and groom. A small, intimate wedding reception. You may have a very small bridal party. Also, an odd number of wedding party participants. Consequently, short wedding intros are also often done at casual, destination and second weddings.

Bridal Party Intro

Your next option is to introduce the Bridal Party! In this scenario you, the bride and groom are introduced after the members of the formal bridal party. The bridal party intro often begins with introducing the flower girl and the ring bearer if you have them. Also includes the brides’ attendants, often called bridesmaids, and ushers also called groomsmen.

Family Intro

Wedding introductions done at formal wedding receptions include the Parents. The parents of the bride, traditionally the hosts of the wedding reception are introduced into the room first.
Today many receptions get paid for by many people. 
Parents, couples themselves and even crowd funding websites, like GoFundMe. In this case, your Emcee or wedding DJ will introduce the hosts of the reception into the room first.

Notable Guest Intro

Quite often you will have notable guests to include in your wedding introductions. Notable guests include your grandparents and anyone that participated in the wedding ceremony. Notable guests may be introduced into the room before your parents, or they may also be recognized at their table.
There you have some of the most common introductions at a typical American wedding reception.

Who are you going to introduce?

Find out in the next article in our series specifically who to introduce and when!
Thank for your time! If you have any questions or comments please let us know.
I look forward to our next meeting!

Adult Contemporary Wedding Processional Songs

Welcome to Adult Contemporary Wedding Processional Songs this week’s Wedding Ceremony Music Series feature article. A weekly series where we showcase a different genre of music for the various parts of an American Wedding ceremony. Adult Contemporary wedding processional songs consists of songs that do not really fit into one category or the other. I suggest you look at other genres such as alternative genre, pop genre as well as rock, R & B and traditional genres of songs.

The leading artist on this list is Celine Dion. Her songs transcend multiple genres of music. Her powerful vocals and melodies take you on an emotional journey.

You were my strength when I was weak 
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me

From ‘Because You Loved Me’ by Celine Dion

tells everyone in your processional how much they mean to you.

Suddenly before my eyes
Hues of indigo arise
With them how my spirit sighs
Paint the sky with stars

From Paint the Sky With Stars by Enya

Somewhere Over the Rainbow the rendition by Joe Satriani is an electric guitar instrumental you may want to consider using for your adult contemporary wedding processional song.

Just remember in the winter

Far beneath the bitter snows

Lies the seed that with the sun’s love

In the spring becomes the rose.

The Rose Bette Midler

We’re heading for something
Somewhere I’ve never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I’m ready to learn
(‘Bout) Of the power of love

The Power of Love by Celine Dion

Two lights that shine as one

Morning glory and midnight sun

Time we’ve learned to sail above

Time won’t chane the meaning of one love

Ageless and ever evergreen

Evergreen by Barbara Streisand

Remember when choosing songs for your wedding processional, you have options with songs that on the whole may not be appropriate, but may have a lyrical section that is long enough for you to use. Factors to consider are how many are in the wedding processional and how far they will have to walk.
