Wedding Playlist: songs for your Formalities

Weddings are all about you as a couple... and the music you choose for your day is no exception! Picking songs that have special meaning to you as a couple can give your guests an amazing insight into your story, who you are as a couple and what you feel for each other and for the loved ones closest to you.

Whether or not you have a band or a DJ, your entertainer will ask you what songs you would like played for the formalities of the night... below are a list of the formalities and a few of the popular song choices for each.

Entrance Song:

The first song of the night is an exciting time as it is the first time you and your partner will be presented as the married couple at your reception. This is the song that is used for your bridal party entrance. Either a fun, upbeat song is popular for the bridal party entrance or a love song that is special to the couple - the choice is yours!
