Grand Entrance Wedding Songs

Your Grand Entrance wedding songs will play when the bride and groom make their first appearance in the reception hall. The music you pick here will set the tone and theme of the night to come. Will it be a low-key entrance, or you can enter the room with a real positive energy that your guests will instantly feel.

Sometimes the entrance leads right into the first dance, however it can also play as the bride and groom greet the room and head for their seats.
