What Are Good Songs for a Wedding Entrance

You're probably wondering how to pick the best song for a wedding entrance. Well, this has certainly been one of your life's most romantic moments, so Tony from Tony Winyard DJ and MC recommends picking a song that pays homage to your love story.

"I really encourage the couple to choose songs which have a special meaning to them; such as from a movie they both love, from a holiday or from their time at uni," he says, "Choosing a song that pulls on the heartstrings and brings a touch of sentimentality to your entrance could be the perfect option to tie your big day together"

Giving couples more options, Tony adds, "Alternatively, you could go for a crowd-pleaser to kickstart your festivities. The most popular options recently have been Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars, Happy by Pharrell Williams, and I Gotta Feeling by Black Eyed Peas. These tunes are sure to heighten the feel-good mood of your wedding reception and get your friends and family up on their feet."

How Long Should a Wedding Entrance Song Be?

This all depends on the order you want you and your party to enter. Some people choose to have their wedding party members go first, leading up to the couple. Alternatively, the moment can be savoured for just the newlyweds. Generally, your choice of wedding reception entrance songs should all be around the three-minute mark to allow for time to ensure everybody makes their entrance smoothly.

Jess, business owner and wedding planner of Occasion Queens, highlights the need to pick a song that suits this timing. "At the end of the day, you want to make sure the song fits the pace of your bridal party and the distance they need to walk. So, pick a song that makes your entrance beautiful and seamless," she says. 

How to Plan a Good Wedding Entrance

To ensure everything goes smoothly for your couple wedding entrance song, have your DJ or master of ceremonies gather the guests by the entrance, creating a welcoming line for you to walk through. Then it's time to play your entrance song. Ensure your DJ knows how you want to be introduced. Are you taking each other's names or would you rather be referred to as 'the happy couple'?

Tony says, "I recommend to them to have something with a good beat which allows the guests to clap along to it as they enter the room."

You also need to think about what your guests will be doing while you enter. This is a fantastic moment to capture on camera, so you'll want to get the snap prepped. Having guests with streamers or party poppers to pop as you come in can look fantastic. Then all you have to do is walk in hand and hand to one of your favourite entrance wedding songs and raise your hands as the crowd go wild!
