Parent song & ceremony music/ recessional recommendations

I have my final meeting with the DJ tomorrow (we are having live music at the ceremony) and I am having trouble figuring out parent songs as well as ceremony music for the recessional. We don't want to do a traditional song for the recessional- any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    If we weren't marrying in a church, I would want to use Pete Townshend's "Let My Love Open the Door" as the recessional song. A lot of people also like Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" or that oldies song "L-O-V-E" ("Love was made for me and you"). Maybe Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me To the Moon" or "You Make Me Feel So Young." Or "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles.

    Omg, fiance and I LOVE that pete townsend song--good call. We are not getting married in church, however, we are having 2 musicians: one playing the flute and the other a keyboard so not sure if they would be able to pull that off but I'll definately ask. thanks for the suggestion!

    that's a great idea. We aren't having any strings although I've heard that song in a bunch of different ways so maybe it can work.
