So you’ve gotten to the actually fun part of wedding planning, and you’re getting ready to pick one of the great wedding entrance songs. This is the song that will play while you and your brand-new spouse will walk into the wedding reception. You may also be picking a wedding party entrance song, and have your favorite people walk in to their own piece of music. (Though you can all walk in to one song, if you want to keep things short and sweet, or don’t want to do a crazy DJ fade between songs.)

But let’s take a quick time-out. If all this is making you feel a tiny bit overwhelmed, remember that you don’t actually have to do a big flashy musical entrance to your wedding. If a grand wedding entrance is that all-eyes-on-you moment that you live for, then read on, and find the perfect songs. But if you’re the kind of person who would rather slip into the reception, and escape all that extra attention? You can totally do that too. (Feel free to forget to mention this choice to any emotionally involved parents. Asking permission is harder than asking forgiveness, and all that.)

But if you’re here for the grand entrance to the reception, there are two things to keep in mind when picking wedding entrance songs. First, you’ll likely want the wedding entrance song that’s easily recognizable (unless you’re going with a purely instrumental, movie score kind of moment). But assuming you’re going more pop-song, you’ll also ideally want to have an instrumental intro that the DJ won’t have to scream herself hoarse to be heard over. (And while we’re talking about introductions, remember that if neither of you are changing your name, the DJ can introduce you as “the newlyweds” or “the happy couple” or any phrase you pick. But it may be worth writing that phrase down on an index card on huge block letters along with the note, “If you introduce us at the new Mr. and Mrs. Smith, you’re dead.”)

It’s also worth keeping in mind the next step on your wedding day timeline. If you’re beginning your first dance immediately after being introduced, you might not want to transition from hip hop to indie folk. Or do you want everyone to smile, applaud, and then sit down while dinner is being served? Maybe go for a tune that will be fun, but not wild. If you’re coming into the room and the next step is a raging dance party, then pick an all-out jam and get into it!
