Does the Entrance Song Have to Be Boring?

No way. The “boring” part is usually the ceremony where you compromise because of your parents. Though you could play the Wedding March,” it isn’t necessary at all. This is your party. You can make it as upbeat or as traditional as you like. If you “want to get the party started” then play “Get Ready For This” by 2 Unlimited.

Songs can rock the house, raise the roof, and add a bit of fun to classy events. From our experience planning weddings, we believe the best entrance song for the wedding party has a good beat and lyrics to match. Stay away from songs that distract from the love message or talk about cheating. It seems like an obvious one, but you’d not believe our stories.

Who gets introduced first at a wedding reception?

Like everything else at your wedding, this is entirely up to you. Generally, the wedding party is absent for a while after the ceremony. They’re all with the photographer while the guests are at the reception, eating hors ‘devours.

As the wedding party re-emerges, you can have your professional DJ announce special pairs, the groomsmen, bridesmaids, and/or the wedding couple. Often the parents and grandparents are announced as a special pair. Then pairs of groomsmen and bridesmaids. After that, the best man and maid of honor are announced, followed by the wedding couple.

  • Wedding Party Entrance Songs – Groomsmen
  • Wedding Party Entrance Songs – Bridesmaids
  • Wedding Couple
 

Similar song lists for further reading:

How Many Songs Do I Need for the Wedding Party Song?

The short answer is as many as you like. But, generally, one song is long enough for up to 9 introductions. That would be the parents, grandparents, one to five sets of the wedding party, the best man and maid of honor, and the wedding couple.

Keep in mind that the average song is 3 minutes in duration. It can take 20 seconds for a couple to prepare and get from the venue entrance door to their seats or to the dance floor. As you increase the number of introductions so will the number of songs you will need. A 3-minute song at 20 seconds per introduction equals 9 introductions on a single song.

You can always create a medley, but that can be confusing for the guests. If you have chosen to skip dinner or allow guests to eat while photographs are taken, the entrance can be immediately followed by the couple’s first dance.

    One song I am thinking of as a possibility for our entrance is the Main Title from ‘An Officer & A Gentleman’. It’s basically an instrumental version of the song ‘Up Where We Belong’ from the same movie. Problem is, it’s only about 1:40 long. Any way you see this working?

      Hello. Thanks for the suggestion. Just for those romantic movie buffs and early 80s music fans, there is a great instrumental cover by Richard Clayderman that would work great into the wedding ceremony!

    Hi, my daughter wants to know what song I want played when I walk into her wedding reception. I’m divorced, and am trying to think of a kick ass song that represents the strong, independent woman I am. Any suggestions? I have pretty eclectic taste, except for rap.

      Hi Tina. Thanks for the question. We have some awesome entrance songs here. However, you may first want to ask your daughter if there is a special song she likes first. Then, you may want to check out our Mother Daughter Songs too.

    for my daughters upcoming wedding,instead of the traditional wedding march,she and I love,”Over the Rainbow”;but not Judy Garland’s version.Our pick was done by a native Hawaiian who’s name is too long to remember,but his version is beautiful

    I would like a few moments of the traditional wedding march then mix with Uptown funk…any ideas?

    I am planning to walk down the aisle in just a few months, this fall. My entrance song(hopefully) will be “Let’s Get Married” by Jagged Edge. There are two versions, but I like the original better than the remix. Just another idea for anybody who may see this. :-)
