10 Upbeat Wedding Party Entrance Songs to Get the Party Started

The Wedding Party Entrance Song is played when the bridal party enter the wedding reception venue. Their order of arrival is usually announced by the DJ or MC. The typical order of entrance is

1. Bridesmaid 1 & Groomsman 1
2. Bridesmaid 2 & Groomsman 2
3. Maid of Honor & Best Man
4. Bride & Groom

Make a grand entrance into your reception with a well thought out Bridal Party entrance song. You can be adventurous when it comes to choosing this ‘first song’ for the reception. You can either go for an upbeat energetic tune to get the party started, or a more elegant styled entrance with a slow mellow tune.

To make the Bride and Groom’s entrance stand a part from the rest of the bridal party they can engage in their own selected music. The band/ DJ can introduce a different less attention grabbing piece for the bridal party.

The Bride and Groom may also choose to have a statement entrance piece to fit their personalities. A real attention grabber could be a famous theme song, or an upbeat pop song that will have your guests singing and along.
