Top 15 Best Songs for a Grand Wedding Entrance

Let’s Get It Started – Black Eyed Peas

While this hit is well over 10 years old, that doesn’t stop couples from choosing it as their entrance song! Not only does it have a catchy beat, everyone knows it and can get hyped up with it!

Uptown Funk – Bruno Mars

Is it any surprise to see this one on here? Not really! This hit took center stage in 2014, and we’re still getting down to it. Even I had a entrance dance to Uptown Funk at my friend’s wedding!

Gloria – Laura Branigan

This may seem odd to some of you, but if you’ve been anywhere in St. Louis since June, then you know that the Blues took home the Stanley Cup for the first time in history, and this song exploded onto the scene! It became the anthem for the Blues, and we’re still hearing it today!

Can’t Stop The Feeling – Justin Timberlake

While you may automatically think of Trolls when you hear this song, you can’t deny that it’s a bop! It’s hard not to want to dance when this song comes on!

Marry You – Bruno Mars

Are you shocked to see another Bruno Mars hit on here? You shouldn’t be! Everyone knows his music is some of the best around, and don’t worry, this isn’t the last song he’ll have on this list either.

Bring ‘Em Out – T.I.

Even though this is one of the older songs on our list, (debuted in 2004) we still hear it quite often at weddings. I mean, T.I. is telling everyone what to do, how could you not get excited to see that bride and groom?!

Sugar – Maroon 5

This song became an instant wedding classic when it first hit the scene in 2014, especially with the accompanying music video. Who wouldn’t want Maroon 5 crashing their wedding?!

Best Day of My Life – American Authors

This song also came out in 2014, but took a little while to gain popularity. However, with its upbeat and catchy lyrics, it quickly became a great entrance song!

Sexy and I Know It – LMFAO

Are you a little surprised by this one? I sure am. It’s a good song to jam to, but some people love it enough to make their Grand Entrance with it!

I Gotta Feeling – Black Eyed Peas

Not going to lie, I am so over this song, but some people aren’t! Ten years down the road and people are still loving it! It’s not as popular as some others, but it still earns a spot on our list!

24K Magic – Bruno Mars

What did I tell ya? We weren’t done with him yet! We can’t forget about 24K Magic, the most recent hit that took the radio by storm. Of course we don’t work a wedding without hearing this one!

Thunderstruck – AC/DC

This one took me by surprise, but after I thought about it, it is a great song! It’s possibly the oldest song we have on this list, but it most definitely goes down in history as a classic rock hit!

Shake Ya Tailfeather – P. Diddy feat. Nelly & Murphy Lee

Alright everyone, in all honesty, I don’t think I’ve ever even heard this song ha! But hey, a lot of DJs have requests to play it for their Grand Entrance (which isn’t surprising since Nelly is from STL!) so it made the list!

Shut Up and Dance – Walk The Moon

Anyone else tired of this song? No? Just me? Guess so, because it’s one of the most reoccurring songs that we get requested for at weddings! Nothing gets the party started quite like this one!

Party Rock Anthem – LMFAO

We round out the list with one of the best dance songs to come out of the early 2010s! This song, without fail, continues to get people out of their chair and onto their feet to celebrate!!
