wedding song suggestions from orlando wedding dj our dj rocks

Gone are the days of the traditional dummm…. dum… dum dum….

Along with the opportunities to personalize your wedding down to the last detail comes a multitude of CHOICE when it comes to wedding music.

But sometimes CHOICE = CHAOS if you can’t seem to find the right song.  Look no further! We have listed our top song choices, categorized for every moment of the wedding from the processional to the very last dance, and every soundtrack-worthy moment in between!


The wedding ceremony involves four different songs. The first song is the processional. The start of the ceremony usually includes any family members such as grandparents, parents or other important parties who enter down the aisle and are seated first. After that, the wedding party enters to different music.

Next, everyone stands. It’s time for the grand entrance into the ceremony. All eyes are on YOU coming down the aisle with that special someone you select to escort you. What is the perfect song for this amazing once-in-a-lifetime moment?

The last song you’ll need for the ceremony is the recessional. You will be announced as a married couple and walk back down the aisle, hand in hand. This is your time to really play any song you want! Choose something uplifting – this is a time of celebration!!

Tips in Selecting Ceremony Music

There are so many options of music to play. Do you prefer classic or modern? Instrumental or upbeat? Which ever you choose, make sure the song is long enough for everyone to come in. It should also match the flow & the feel of the song played before it during the processional.

Upon arrival at the reception, we will greet the newlyweds and wedding party and prepare your Guests of Honor (i.e. Maid of Honor, Best Man, Mom, Dad, etc) for introductions. Our style is a fun, yet formal introduction of everyone in the wedding party, culminating with the introduction of the newly married couple. We encourage you all to get somewhat creative with this event, as this sets the stage for the reception to follow!

As the cheers start to fade, we introduce the newlyweds “dancing together for the very first time as a married couple,” followed by your chosen song. We then invite your Guests of Honor to your head table as we transition into our toasts followed by dinner. Once the dinner and formal dances have been completed, it’s party time!!

As we transition from dinner to dancing, we’ll pick the music up a bit to attract your guests attention to the dance floor. Then it’s party time! Our job is to truly incorporate your music taste and preferences. We encourage you to provide us with a list of your favs, and your list of least favs! We love requests from your guests and we’ve noticed that sometimes those special requests from guests are the ones that create lasting memories on the dance floor. Even for those wallflowers!
