John Legend, “All of Me”

One of the most popular wedding entrance songs in recent years, this hit by John Legend is filled with thoughtful romantic lyrics that are certain to bring a tear to the eye of your reception guests. As you and your groom dance to it, you’re also carrying forward a tradition; John Legend performing this song for his own wife at their wedding!                                     

Bruno Mars, “Marry You”

What could be more perfect than this modern hit by Bruno Mars? It’s certain to make for quite a grand reception entrance for you and your groom, and the lyrics couldn’t be more appropriate. This one is a rare combination of heart-felt sentiment and energy that’s good for getting the party going.

Pitbull featuring Christina Aguilera, “Feel This Moment”

Every bride thinks at her wedding that she wants to remember these moments forever. By choosing an entrance song like this one, you can help ensure that everyone shares these sentiments. The song is dance-able, and the lyrics will inspire people to live in the moment and really enjoy themselves at your reception.

LMFAO, “Party Rock Anthem”

Granted, this isn’t a traditional “wedding song” by any stretch, but if you and your groom are on the quirky side, this can be a great way to share that part of yourselves with your guests. Nothing will get the wedding party fired up like entering the reception hall to this hit.

Jagged Edge, “Let’s Get Married”

This slow song is perfect both for dancing and for making a great and emotional entrance to your reception. The lyrics really say it all, and the sweet tone of the music will put people in a romantic mood.

Coldplay, “Viva La Vida”

This is another modern hit that usually gets people in the mood to party. If your wedding itself has people feeling emotionally worked up and overwhelmed, a song like this can really mark the transition to the joyous celebration that should be your reception.

Calvin Harris, “Feel So Close”

This is another song that can serve two purposes. The music will make you want to get up and dance, and will definitely energize your guests and get them ready for an upbeat reception. At the same time, the sweet lyrics will emphasize the love you and your groom have for one another.

U2, “Beautiful Day”

This one is more of a classic, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be appropriated by the modern bride. Entering your reception to a song like this will generally get people ready to transition into the party half of the wedding, while still keeping things refined.

Pachelbel, “Canon in D”

This one may seem like an unusual choice for a “modern bride”, but it’s a classic staple of wedding entrance songs, and you really can’t go wrong. If you’re going for elegance and class at your wedding reception, this is one of the best and most traditional songs you could possibly select to set the proper tone.

Rascal Flatts, “Life is a Highway”

If your wedding reception falls to the more rustic side of things, however, then you might get a lot of mileage out of this tune. It’ll definitely set the tone for a free-wheeling party atmosphere if that’s what you want for your reception, and the infectious lyrics just have a way to getting people up and moving.
