7 Best Wedding Entrance Songs for the Bride and Groom
Much like a basketball team coming out to a song off the Jock Jams CD, the bride and groom can choose an upbeat song that will get their fans riled up before they head out onto the dance floor for their very first dance.
One of the most exciting moments at a wedding is when the bride and groom make their grand entrance into the wedding reception area. When wedding couples talk with their wedding DJ, they’ll most likely decide on the perfect music to start off the official wedding reception party.
Scott Michaels, CEO of Booking My Wedding says, “Much like a basketball team coming out to a song off the Jock Jams CD, the bride and groom can choose an upbeat song that will get their fans riled up before they head out onto the dance floor for their very first dance.”
1) Bring ‘Em Out – T.I. Featuring Jay-Z
This song was used a lot during the 2006 NBA Finals as the theme song for the Miami Heat during their player introductions. It’s a song that will get your wedding guests pumped up as they watch you walk out onto the reception room dance floor as husband and wife.
2) You Make My Dreams Come True – Daryl Hall & John Oates
This is a really fun song that is very singable. It’s also hard to stand still when you hear this 1980 hit from Hall & Oats. The lyrics describe a hot and passionate relationship that the Bride and Groom most likely share: “What I want, you’ve got, But it might be hard to handle, Like the flame that burns the candle, The candle feeds the flame yeah yeah.”
3) Thunderstruck – AC/DC
“Thunderstruck” is widely considered one of AC/DC’s best songs. And the sound of booming drum beats and heavy guitars makes it feel like thunder. This song will put some more boom into the bride and groom’s wedding entrance onto the dance floor.

6) Marry You – Bruno Mars
“Marry You” is a very fun pop and doo-wop song. For obvious reasons, “Marry You,” is the perfect wedding song. The song is about a spontaneous proposal, and since its release has been used as a wedding song across the US. Mars sings, “It’s a beautiful night, we’re looking for something dumb to do, Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you, Is it the look in your eyes or is it this dancing juice? Who cares, baby, I think I wanna marry you.”
7) Crazy In Love – Beyonce Feat. Jay-Z
VH1 declared “Crazy in Love” the greatest song of the 2000s decade, and this hit spent eight consecutive weeks at number one on the Hot 100.
