Wedding Entrance Songs FAQs

If I have a lot of people in my bridal party what do you recommend for a wedding entrance song?

Wedding entrance songs should be upbeat and keep your guests clapping and cheering for your bridal party marching  into the reception space. Selecting one entrance song per couple in the bridal party will not delay the entrance for more than just a few seconds. We have had many large bridal parties and actually timed the entrances to see if there was a difference (yes we have been asked this question many times and put it to the test), the results? No noticeable difference.

With that said, something that could delay the main entrance of the bridal party is whether your bridal party wants the song to “build up” like on this Wedding. For this Wedding, the bridal party selected Metallica entrance songs, and asked for the intro of the songs to be played, walking in as the songs built up. The main entrance will be significantly longer but your bridal party will have more fun walking in and planning their entrance. 

What are the most popular wedding entrance songs? 

Every year the wedding entrance songs change, as most people choose a popular top-40 upbeat song. 

How can I make my wedding entrance special? 

For the bridal party by selecting an individual wedding entrance song for each couple …  a song that has meaning to you, like one that you heard growing up together. You can make it a surprise for your bridal party which will have the other bridal party members wondering which song you had selected for them. You can also have the bridal party select their own entrance songs, and prepare a grand-entrance. I recall a wedding where every couple entered while re-enacting a scene from a movie, the entrance song was the movie score. 

This is your bridal party’s 15 seconds of fame 🙂

Another example I can recall is during a masquerade-theme Wedding, where the bridal party wore masks as they marched into the room, and removed their masks once they reached the dance-floor. 

Should the females be on the left and the males on the right side?

Anything is fine. Customarily at Weddings, the bride stood on the left as the male held a sword on his right hand to fight off any last-minute bride thiefs (it’s true!) Guests will not be paying attention to which side. 

How can the bridal party choose their own song? 

You should organize this and send your Wedding DJ the information in advance, as opposed to the bridal party contacting the DJ directing. This way, the bridal party can run it through you first for approval. This way there will be no surprises, and you can keep a tab on who has not submitted their songs. 

Can we change the bridal party entrance song on the day of? 

Yes just give your DJ enough time to go into his library and switch the songs because more than likely the Wedding DJ has everything prepared a few days before. Some venues decide to switch the order of the bridal party entrance to match the order in which they walked in during the ceremony. If choosing an individual song for each bridal party member and this happens, just be sure to let your DJ know as the DJ will have to rearrange his songs. More than likely, the Wedding DJ has the songs pre-arranged in number order rather than names. 

What if I forget a member of the bridal party how can I have the Wedding DJ know?

You can let your DJ or a maître d’ know right before the line-up. Before main entrances are made, the MC or DJ usually lines the bridal party in order. 

Should the bride and groom entrance song be different than the bridal-party entrance song? 

Yes! The parents, bridal party, and the bride and groom entrance songs should all be different. You’re telling a story in the way of music and the change in energy is important to make your entrance more grandose. There should be at least three different songs selected for the main entrance.

What should the bride and groom’s entrance song be?

If you’re going for a fun wedding feel, the song should be upbeat, while matching your theme. Have we done Weddings where classical music was used for the main entrance? Yes! But typically your guests will be pumped to see you make your entrance as husband and wife, they will be standing, clapping, and cheering for you as you enter the room.

 

How long does the entrance song play for?

 

It takes a bridal party member approximately 15 to 20 seconds to walk from the door over to their positions of the dance floor.

 

How should they stand on the dance-floor? 

 

It is up to you and the venue. This is something that your should discuss with your venue, photographer and videographer. It makes no difference to your Wedding DJ. There is usually a venue employee guiding your guests on the dance-floor as they make their entrance. 

 

The bridal party usually stands on the dance floor as the bride and groom make their entrance, and then encircle the couple, as they share their first dance.

 

In the case of grandparents, parents or bridal party members who cannot walk or stand, your Wedding DJ or MC can give them an honorable mention from their seats, while bringing attention over to where they’re sitting so your guests can acknowledge them. They don’t necessarily even have to stand. Honorable mentions are usually done before the announcing the rest of the bridal party.
