Hi all,

I’m looking for opinions - for the entrance to the reception are you including your wedding party or just the two of you?

if you are including your wedding party, will you have two different songs?

We only have a MOH and best man in our party so two songs might be too choppy but I don’t know if I want to share our entrance song.

    This answer can go 2 ways of choices:

    1. Selected songs you want to have for the wedding party and yourselves so it gives you a way to personalize what you want to play as your favourite song (s).

    2. One song can be chosen to be played if your coordinating a dance entrance with you two included in it.

    I did teach our wedding party and my husband a dance number for the Reception entrance which was my choice. Usually its family who does enter before the couple.

    We only have MOH and BM so just one song for the 4 of us. Looking for something fun. I want to set the mood that we are here to have fun. I don't want too much formality. If we do one at all. I'm still almost 2 years out so I have lots of time to plan.

    This was helpful to read! I have a giant WP so I was wondering how to separate... this is a good idea!

    I'm thinking that we will just have one song and that we will just pick one that has a big pickup in the middle that way we walk out at that point? But if we can't find one that has that then we are fine with walking out with the same song. Won't be able to hear it over all the cheering anyway right?

    SO we did:

    Bride Parents - They chose their own song (Great Balls of Fire)

    Groom Parents - They chose (Celebration)

    Bridal party - Ring Bearers, Flower Girls, Groomsmen and Bridesmaids, MOH and BM - We chose (Space Jam Theme Song

    Bride and Groom - We chose - (Something like this - Coldplay/Chainsmokers)

    Worked out really well!

    I didn't want TOO many songs going but the 4 worked really well!

    You don't have to have a song for your wedding party, just an announcement and then play your entrance song.

    We are including our wedding party and parents. So each couple will have their own song, and then we will have our own.

    I have left it up to my wedding party to pick their own songs, if they don't give me what they want, I may just do one song for everyone to come in!

    We only have one MOH and 2 best men and we're not doing entrances for them, just for us.

    We didn't do an entrance really, but I have been in a wedding party where we did and everyone had their own song.

    The bride and groom had their song of choice and each bridesmaid and groomsmen couple had their own song.

    It is totally up to you though, but if you have a DJ then they will do whatever you want.. they can play parts of different songs for everyone as they walk in or they play just one and you all do your thing!
