Top 10 wedding introduction songs
maine wedding dj | 2022 list
Music trends come and go and selecting the perfect song for your wedding entrance can feel like a daunting task. Where do you start? What vibe do you want to create? Well, here are my top 10 introduction songs for 2022!
But first, let me say: I’m a firm believer in an upbeat intro. Why? I think it sets the tone for the rest of the night. It’s the kickoff to your reception and if you want a great party the introductions are the perfect place to start. Upbeat music naturally creates a moment where guests want to move their feet, clap their hands, and let loose. But, what do you think? How do you want your introductions to go down? What do you have in mind? I’d love to hear about it so drop me a message on Instagram – these posts are always evolving and I take into account feedback from my couples, trends on national blogs, and discussions I have with prospective clients.
We’ve established upbeat but what about the genre of music? Does that matter? Personally, I don’t think so and I know there are blog articles out there that say it does. I always let my couples interject their personality and style as much as possible and of course, music selection is a big part of that. Classic rock, top 40, EDM, hip hop, honestly, it doesn’t matter! You can find music from all genres and all decades that will light up your party.
Who are you introducing?
Before picking the soundtrack for your introductions you should determine who you are introducing and what that will look like. It will also help you determine if you need one song or multiple tracks. Many times, parents are either recognized at their seats or walk-in as part of the formal introduction. Parents tend to kick off the introductions and perhaps having them come in to ‘Bring ‘Em Out’ by T.I. isn’t the right vibe. My recommendation: if there isn’t a singular track that you like for everyone, pick multiple songs!
2021 brought some new trends with introductions. I’m not sure if couples are getting bored pairing up members of their bridal party or not, but I did more group introductions in 2021 than ever before. And, honestly, it may be a result of bridal parties not being limited to “traditional gender roles” anymore either. Bridal parties have become inclusive of bridesmen and grooms women so perhaps a group introduction might be something you find more appropriate for your wedding.
For me, this is what I love about being a wedding DJ. The evolution and changing with the times. I love brainstorming ideas and finding the perfect way to represent my couples. Whoever you are working with for entertainment should be able to discuss and present many ways for introductions to take place. I always say: it’s your wedding and you should be in control. I’m there to facilitate your day for you. It’s not about what I want to do and your DJ, planner, the photographer shouldn’t try to influence your decisions to fall in line with what they like.
