The Best Wedding Entrance Songs


words by | Eve Green

Great music is the best way to get your wedding reception started! With so many styles of music available for your grand entrance, take this once in a lifetime opportunity and personalize the moment, fitting your wedding style and personalities as a couple. With endless songs from which to choose, it’s may be difficult to narrow down your choices. We spoke with some of our favorite Toledo area DJs about what makes a wedding entrance song so special.

Michael Baginski, owner of Decorative Sound stated, “A great bridal party entrance definitely sets the tone for a fun and memorable night! The energy that newlyweds and their bridal party interject can have a huge domino effect on their guests! The personalities of the entire bridal party really get the chance to shine during their grand introduction. Each paired couple gets their opportunity to bring the reception to life when their names are announced and they get to strut their stuff! The most popular way for grand introductions is when newlyweds select a song for their entire bridal party and a special song just for them!”

Chris Marinski, Founder of C.M. Signature DJ expressed how the newlywed couple's entrance can be used as an opportunity to get everyone in the room excited. “This is a huge moment and one that a true professional MC/DJ will see as a critical time to build energy, earn the trust of your guests and set the tone of the entire night.”

Marinski’s favorite wedding entrance song for 2017 is “Light It Up” by Major Lazer. He says, “It is a high energy, fun song that when coupled with a talented MC it will surely get the people going and ready to jump out of their seats! A seasoned DJ will understand the key parts of the track and will time your entrances perfectly with the high points of the song to create a rare energy in your venue and among your guests. The beat will drop as you enter, your crowd is roaring at a level you've never seen and your once in a lifetime wedding celebration begins!”
