Wedding Party Music 101

Your wedding party consists of your closest family and friends; the people that know you better than anyone else. Choosing music that fits their personality is what gets everyone hyped up and lets them make the most of their “15 seconds of fame.” With all the music to choose from out there, it can be hard to select just a few to use that really reflects your wedding party.

Keep It To Three Songs or Less

Choose three songs or less for your introductions – one song for the parents, one for the bridal party and one for the bride and groom. You can choose use one song for the parents and bridal party together and one for the bride and groom, or just one song for everyone, as well. Don’t worry about giving each couple their own song. I know it sounds tempting, but there won’t be enough time to really let the song get going.

Utilize the Wedding Party

Planning a routine or choreographing introductions involving your wedding party can exciting, entertaining and just plain fun. It can be something as simple as having them line up on the dance floor, creating a little path for the bride and groom to walk through or it can be very complex that requires multiple practice sessions. The choice is up to you!
