As a magical wedding emcee and toastmaster, one of my top priorities is ensuring the bride and groom's big entrance into the reception is truly spectacular and sets the tone for an incredible celebration.
The wedding party's entrance is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make a memorable first impression in front of all your nearest and dearest. This is your red carpet moment! That's why it pays to put thought and effort into curating an entrance for the ages.
Beyond just announcing the newlyweds, I recommend turning it into a production by introducing the entire bridal party with a bang. Build up the anticipation by bringing in the parents, wedding party and finally the starring couple with high energy walk-in songs.
Selecting the right entrance music is key - go for bold, lively anthems that will pump up the crowd and get everyone on their feet. The goal is to create an atmosphere of infectious excitement and fun right from the start.
Here are some surefire wedding entrance songs to consider for each group: (note that Stephen edits all songs to start at the "funky bits")
