Those of you have done/are doing a grand entrance, did you use two separate songs: 1 for the wedding party, 1 for you? Or did you just stick with one song?

    Following.
    I've only ever seen one.
    But I'm considering doing 2 because we're currently planning on coming in and immediately cake cutting.

    It’s common here for weddings to have different songs for each couple that is introduced. I think I’m sticking to only two though, one for the entire wedding party and then one for us.

    Wow, I've never seen that done! I can't decide if I want to bother with two songs or just stick with one.

    That makes sense. Right now I just have one, but I'm second guessing if I want a separate one for the wedding party and then for us.

    Deciding on one has been hard enough for us.

    I’d say have two if you have two songs that you really like and fit well. If not, and you feel like you’re forcing it to have two, then just have the one you really like!

    We just used one song, wedding party wasn't that big and I wanted to keep things simple

    We actually did a different song for each couple and it was awesome and so much fun!

    I think we'll be doing two, one for our party and one for us. I'd love to have our parents walk in to their wedding songs but that's still undecided.

    I'm only doing one song for everyone. Even though I bet DJ's can get the songs to mash and move from one to another very nicely I'm not a fan.

    Even for my processional I'm only having one song for everyone to walk to.

    We had two - there wasn't one song that kept the energy we wanted long enough for all of the attendants, RB, FG, all parents and grandparents PLUS us! So we split it up - ZZTop "Sharp Dressed Man" for the bridal party big group, and then our DJ seamlessly transitioned (he was a wizard I swear) into The Who, "Baba O'Riley" for our entrance. It was kind of like the reception version of closing the church doors or changing the music for the bride's ceremony entrance Smiley smile

    We will have 2, one for the bridal party and one for us. When I see different ones for each couple it’s a bit much.

    We had 3 - my dad had a song, one song for the wedding party and one for us. The transition worked and was pretty seamless.

    We are sticking to one song. My best friend who is also a DJ (not ours) says that the entrance are usually lower in volume so that names can be heard and that most people don't pay too much attention to the song.

    Each person actually has their own song. so there are 12 songs for them - 1 for each groomsman and bridesmaid and one for me and my FH
