Finding the best groom entry song can really make your entrance more memorable.

Introduction

Here comes the… groom??

Yep, you read that right! So move over brides (at least, for a short bit) and make way for the groom’s wedding entrance! 

Because whether you’re being wedded to a wonderful woman or you’re two grooms entering married life together, you also deserve a moment to strut down the aisle, stylish clothes and all. And what better way to punctuate that moment than with your very own groom entry song? 

Thing is, picking that song requires some legwork, given that it can be tricky to nail it down. 

But we’re all about supporting every groom here at DJing.ca, so we went ahead and cracked down on 50 of the best groom entry songs to mark your entrance.

This list is also divided into the following categories: romantic, pop, country, classic, and funny – so every type of groom is covered. 

With that, let’s get right to it!

How To Pick The Perfect Groom Song

  • Match Your Style: First off, pick a song that aligns with your personality as the groom! If you’re known for being funny, then why not pick a humorous tune? If you want a more solemn entrance, then you can always go for a classic tune. The key here is to pick something that feels “you.” 
  • Test the Tempo: If you’re planning to do more than just “walk” down the aisle (hint: might include some light dancing), then consider the tempo of your groom entry song. Personally, we recommend going for a song that allows for easy movement so you can be more confident!
  • Personalize the Song: If you want to be more extra with your groom entrance, consider adding some personal touches to the song! For example, you can add some unique lyrics, choose a cover version, or cover the song yourself (we’re sure you can carry a tune… right??). This makes your groom’s entrance stand out and become more memorable! 

  • Practice Your Entrance: Of course, make sure you practice the walk beforehand. This is also a good time to coordinate with your DJ to make sure that all of the timing is right. If there are certain cues you want to highlight, now’s the time to speak up! (or forever hold your… special song request)

  • Follow Your Heart: Last but not the least, just pick the song that feels right for you! After all, this is your moment in the wedding before you share it with your partner at the altar, so make sure it counts!

What To Avoid When Choosing A Groom Entry Song

  • Overly Sad or Emotional Songs: This is definitely a pitfall you want to avoid. While a touch of sentiment is beautiful and touching, it’s not a valid reason to go full #emo on your wedding! You want a song that inspires, uplifts, or livens the mood, not an excessively sad tune! 

  • Inappropriate Lyrics: Of course, you want to double-check the lyrics too to ensure they’re wedding-appropriate! A touch of humor here and there is welcome, just make sure that there’s no lyrics with explicit or inappropriate content. You don’t want looks of disapproval down the aisle, do you? 

  • Overused or Cliché Songs: While it’s not exactly wrong to lean into cliché or popular songs, While popular songs are popular for a reason, taking the extra legwork to find something more unique is encouraged! Maybe hit up the wedding DJ for some unique recommendations too? They’re the pros, after all.

  • Songs with Personal Baggage: This should go without saying, but steer clear of songs that carry personal baggage or remind you of difficult times in your life. This is a day of celebration for your love, and your memories down the line should only reflect that. 

  • Ignoring Your Partner’s Preferences: Finally, pick a song that your partner also enjoys! Your wedding is the start of a lifelong partnership, so make decisions together starting now and avoid picking something without first considering her taste.
You can coordinate with your DJ to find the perfect groom entry song.

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
