Choosing Wedding Reception Grand Entrance Songs
When it comes to selecting your wedding grand entrance songs, it’s all about choosing celebratory songs that you can relate to as a couple. Through all of the weddings we have DJd, we find it works best to choose two songs for the reception introductions, one for your wedding party and one for you as a couple. As your wedding DJ, we will be able to seamlessly flow from your wedding party entrance song to your entrance song to your first dance choice.

The wedding party grand entrance song sets the mood for your wedding reception. Is your wedding going to be a fun party? Do you want guests to have a relaxing time at your reception? Whatever atmosphere you want to initiate, keep that in mind when selecting your songs. Often times nowadays, the bridal party comes in dancing or doing quirky moves to their introduction song. That’s why it’s a great idea to choose an upbeat song that your bridal party can have fun with. It’s their time to let loose, after all they have worked so hard being a member of your wedding party.
For you and your partner’s grand entrance song, keeping with the mood by selecting another upbeat song works well. We also recommend choosing a song that is meaningful to you both. If you like 80s rock, you could choose Surivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.” If you’re both into hip hop, “Bring Em Out” by TI is a fun choice. Or if you’re looking for a mellow song, “A Beautiful Day” by U2 works well.
