After meticulously planning every tiny detail of your wedding—everything from choosing your wedding venue to choosing your tableware, flowers, band, catering, and dress—you may very well be “all planned out”. But what about your wedding entrance song? Most couples want to make a big splash as you enter the ballroom, because it’s the first time they will be entering a room as a married couple…and that means finding just the right song.
At our banquet halls, we’ve seen a lot of grand entrances, so we know what tends to fly and what tends to flop. Here’s our list of timeless wedding entrance songs that never fail to pump up the crowd and get the party started right.
