What Should Your Grand Entrance Song Be?

*Playlists updated for 2019*

One of the most common questions our wedding DJs get from the couples they work with: ‘what should our grand entrance song be?’ That’s because it’s BIG decision.

wedding reception grand entranceNo 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 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. That’s where Mike Staff Productions comes in. Our certified DJs are professionals in the truest form (read for yourself)! They know a thing or two about what songs work and what songs are grand entrance DUDS!

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. So, where do you start? Let’s break down how to choose and then tracks you can choose from!

Grand Entrance Advice For the Bridal Party

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 some songs down:

  • 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? 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.

Grand Entrance Advice For 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, something that gives off the energy you want while setting a great vibe!
