Welcome to DJ Stevie Dee's blog! If there's one moment that every couple eagerly awaits on their wedding day, it’s their grand entrance. Walking into the reception hall with all eyes on you is a feeling like no other. Your entrance sets the tone for the rest of the celebration, so it’s only fitting that it should be nothing short of spectacular.
Here’s DJ Stevie Dee’s Ultimate Guide to Creating a Memorable Wedding Entrance.
Start With The Perfect Song
The song you choose for your entrance is critical. It can be upbeat and energetic, romantic and soulful, or something personal that holds special meaning to both of you.
Upbeat and Energetic: For couples who want to kick things off with a bang, an upbeat song can get everyone in the party mood. Think “Happy” by Pharrell Williams or “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars.
Romantic and Soulful: If you prefer a more romantic entrance, choose a song that’s slow and soulful. “All of Me” by John Legend or “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri can be great options.
Personal Touch: If you have “your song” that holds special meaning, this might be the perfect moment to use it. Whether it's a mainstream hit or an obscure gem, it will be extra special.
Coordinate With Your Wedding Party
Your bridal party can be part of the grand entrance. Choreograph a simple dance or coordinate a fun walk-in. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen can pair up and do their entrance first, setting the stage for your own grand entrance.
Use Lighting to Enhance the Mood
The lighting during your entrance is just as important as the song. Work with your wedding planner or DJ to coordinate the lights with your entrance. Soft, golden lights can create a romantic atmosphere, while a spotlight on the entrance door as you walk in can create a dramatic effect.
Make an Entrance with a Twist
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box! Arrive in style by making an entrance with a twist. Whether it’s on a scooter, through a cloud of smoke, or accompanied by a flash mob, be creative!
Props can add an extra element of fun to your entrance. From sparklers to balloons, or even confetti, props can make your entrance visually stunning and entertaining.
Capture the Moment
Ensure your photographer and videographer are ready to capture your grand entrance. This is a moment you will want to remember and relive for years to come.
Practice Makes Perfect
It’s important to rehearse your entrance, especially if it involves complex choreography or timing. Practice with your partner and the wedding party if they’re involved.
Relax and Enjoy the Moment
Lastly, remember that this is your day. Relax and enjoy the moment. Your happiness and excitement are contagious, and that alone can make your entrance memorable.
Your wedding entrance is the first step in celebrating a new chapter in your lives together. Take the time to plan it out, add a personal touch, and most importantly, have fun with it.
