It’s time for your wedding party to make their grand entrance at the reception! Choose their entrance song carefully, because it’s bound to set the tone for the whole night.
Before you choose a song, think about the genre of music you and your partner love most, as well as the kind of mood you want to set. A classic R&B song will get the whole room bopping their heads while a country anthem will have ‘em stomping their feet.
From 80s Classics to the poppiest of Pop – here are the best bridal party entrance songs that’ll get the party started right:
#1: The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson
There’s no one quite like the King of Pop to kick off your wedding reception. We love that The Way You Make Me Feel is a total classic and has a beat that’ll have everyone up and dancing in no time flat.
Bonus points if you have bridesmaid and groomsmen who will choreograph a dance number to this jam!
#2: We Found Love by Rihanna and Calvin Harris
If you want your wedding party’s entrance song to deliver a message that screams – throw your hands up cause we’re gonna party – We Found Love is it!
#3: Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours) by Stevie Wonder
This soulful 1970 ballad is a total winner! The first five seconds of this Stevie Wonder classic will have every wedding guest hooting and hollering as your wedding party dances their way in.
#4: I Wanna Dance with Somebody by Whitney Houston
Who else loves this song?! The drum machine. The synthesizer. And that voice. Arguably Whitney Houston’s best song ever, this 1987 chart-topper is our favorite 80s song for a wedding party entrance.
#5: Best Day of My Life by American Authors
This 2014 pop song obviously has a great message. After all, it is the best day of your life. But it’s sing-song “wo-o-o-o-o-oh, wo-o-o-o-o-oh” that’ll will have everyone singing along, even if they’ve never heard the song.
#6: Love On Top by Beyoncé
All hail the queen herself! Beyoncé’s Love on Top is a slow jam meets pop jam. Take a listen and imagine your wedding party strutting their stuff as they make their grand entrance. Level up by transitioning to Crazy in Love for the couple’s grand entrance!
#7: Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO
If you want a great party song that introduces your bridesmaids and groomsmen, this is the one! No one will be able to resist shakin’ it.
#8: Country Girl (Shake it For Me) by Luke Bryan
A country wedding needs a classic country song that introduces the wedding party. Let the wedding party kick off their cowboy boots and have some fun dancing to Luke Bryan’s Country Girl.
#9: You’re My Best Friend by Queen
Your best friends just watched you get married, making this Queen classic a tear-jerking choice for their reception entrance song.
#10: This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) by Natalie Cole
Natalie Cole’s voice is like butter and the horn section on this 1975 bop will breathe instant life into your reception.
Happy planning, brides and grooms! xoxo
