One of the most important moments of your wedding day is when the bride and groom introduction announcing their entrance into the reception. The right song can set the tone for the rest of the evening and create a lasting memory for you and your guests. Your bridal party will probably be introduced before you, so choose something that represents you and your partner.
Naturally, all of these songs can also be used for the entire wedding party. As always, it is entirely up to YOU.
An upbeat and energetic song is always a good suggestion, so we’ll suggest a few standouts here. For our full inspirational list, see our Spotify playlist at the bottom of the page.
The Importance of Choosing the Right Bride and Groom Introduction Song
Choosing the right song for your entrance as a bride and groom is essential. The right song (for you) will set the tone for the rest of the evening and create a memorable moment for you and your guests. Your entrance as a couple is one of the most important moments of your wedding day, and the right song can make all the difference.
If you have a fun family and fun guests, you might want to play something that is unexpected for your introduction. Something that they wouldn’t have thought you would have chosen. Think “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC, “Bring Em Out” by T.I., “Get Read” by 2 Unlimited, “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba and the like. Songs like that.
