Skipping a recessional song, using an Mp3, or guitarist?

We’re two weeks out and I didn’t even think of this until today, but we don’t have a recessional song! We have an acoustic guitarist (friend of FFIL) for while guests are seated and the processional, but we never asked him about the recessional. Do we need a recessional song? If we do, would it make more sense to have the guitarist do that as well or would a MP3 player and speaker work?

    I would just have the guitarist do it. I'm sure he would be willing.

    Yea the guitarist is there already anyway so I think it'd be nice to utilize him. I had a recessional song! I used I do by colbie caillat

    Just ask the guitarist, he’s probably assuming he’s going to play something anyway. I would ask him if he has any music suggestions though before picking a random song this close. He may not mind a sudden request but I would at least ask.

    You don't NEED one. We are putting songs on an e-file and having someone play them during the processional and recessional but they won't be the typical wedding instrumental songs. And we will behave a gutarist as well.

    Thank you everyone! FH is going to ask our guitarist if he could play during the recessional, and if he has suggestions. This was probably a super easy decision but I feel like my anxiety is working overtime making everything feel harder than it is!
