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.
And there you go – our handpicked list of the best groom’s entrance songs, along with some extra do’s and don’ts when picking that tune.
