34 Songs That Make a Grand Entrance

It’s one of the most common questions our wedding DJs get …

‘What should our grand entrance song be?’ No pressure, but your ‘Grand Entrance’ on your wedding day is kind of a big deal. Some consider it one of the most paramount moments of a wedding reception because it’s the official kick off to your PARTY and you want to make sure it kicks off on the right note… literally.

More than One Grand Entrance

The Bridal Party

Keep in mind, technically there are two grand entrances — you and your spouse AND your bridal party — the songs below will work for either moment.  Let’s break down how to choose and then onto the playlists!

During your bridal party introduction song, why not choose a song that reminds them of some good times you’ve shared? You could even ask your bridal party a few questions to help narrow down some choices:

  • Who are some of their favorite artists?
  • What hobbies do they enjoy? (You probably know the answer to that one!)
  • Do they want to use props? (Can’t go wrong with shades!)
  • County? Hip Hop? Heavy metal fans?

PRO TIP:It’s recommended to have ONE song for the entire bridal party to come out to then a different song for each couple. Why? A couple coming out to their own song does not leave a lot of time for the song to develop and get the crowd into it, plus it just takes longer.

The Couple

Anything goes, but not everything works.

If the song holds great meaning for you, it’s appropriate. That’s a good place to start. What fun, upbeat songs means something to you and your fiance? Pick something personal! Choose a song that has an ‘anthem’ feel for your wedding.
