Hey... Congrats on your engagement!! Exciting times ahead!! I'm pretty sure you meant for the reception entrance, but I'll run with the crowd here and answer both ceremony entrance and reception entrance. We might just sway your ceremony decision....haha.
So, for us, we love the "hear a pin drop, take your breath away, not a dry eye in the house" type song. Played acoustically with the right arrangement, any song can pull this off. So if there's something you wanted to hear but thought it wouldn't fit, hire the right person and it will! Some musicians once hired, including us, will include a demo of the song played the way you want to hear it while walking down the aisle.
In saying that, our most popular ceremony songs are:
A Thousand Years - Christina Perry
Marry Me - Train
The One - Kodlaine (just recently become really popular at weddings and sounds absolutely beautiful with just acoustic guitar and vocals)
Making Memories of Us - Keith Urban
Make You Feel My Love - Adele (another show stopper with just acoustic and vocals)
All You Need Is Love - The Beatles
Reception entrance - I'm all for picking an upbeat banger! Generally a great MC should be trying to get your guests into a great vibed up mood for the entrance and a cracking song just takes it to the next level. Of course.... just my opinion!
Here's some from our last month or weddings (beware, it's pretty varied!!)
Signed, Sealed, Delivered - Stevie Wonder
Happy - Pharell Willilams
All I Do Is Win - DJ Khaled, T Pain, Ludacris, Rick Ross and Snoop Dogg
Best Day Of My Life - American Authors
You're The Best Thing - Style Council
Sorry - Justin Beiber - That was a pretty funny choice actually, brought the house down...Lol
Good luck with your big day! I'm sure it will be amazing whatever you go with.... remember to soak it all up and have a blast!
Adam Ray - Something Borrowed
