When it came time to find our reception entrance song, Andy & I were STUMPED. Every other music choice came so easily and naturally. But the reception entrance song – well you want the right beat, the right tone, this song sets the mood for the entire reception (just like your ceremony entrance song sets the tone for your ceremony. duh).
We had a good amount of road trips up to NJ and other places, and we used that time to dive into our iTunes libraries to find the perfect song. Some had great lyrics, but the wrong beat. Others had the right beat, but we had already used the artist for other songs. (Yes, we took our music choices THAT seriously).
Then Andy put on a song that at first he meant to be a joke – but the second it started on my stereo, we both looked at eachother and knew. THIS WAS IT. Our reception entrance song (if you haven’t read my ‘My Wedding‘ page):
It certainly set the “pumped up”, funny, good-time, vibe we were aiming for. And our parents & wedding party had a blast being announced to it.
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnyway! I heard this song in Spin Class the other night – and I think it would just be such a great way to kick off a wedding reception if you are looking for an up-beat, modern, makes-you-want-to-dance, song for your reception entrance! (PS- It is actually from Happy Feet!!)
