Church aside, a great number of your wedding guests will be looking out for the reception. They just cant wait to see how the new couple will turn up, so what better way to stand out than to walk in grooving to some great rhythms and dance strokes? Here are some of the songs that you need to consider dancing to for your wedding entrance;
“Come and see my moda,” by Mzvee and Yemi Alade.
Yemi Alade is known for fun and funky music that will make a person get up from wherever you are seated and show the crowd what you’ve got. This song will just have the same effect on you. The song is basically about a woman telling a man to make it official (see her mother) if he has honourable intentions towards her. Well, the new groom has just done that so it perfectly relates to the situation at hand.
“Unconditionally bae” by Sauti Sol
People say, “If you don’t know Sauti Sol music, then you haven’t fallen in love yet.” The Kenyan music group is famous for their love songs and soothing voices that will indeed make someone feel special, unconditional love being one of them. Unconditionally bae is an upbeat song with some dance strokes you could include in your entrance dance choreography. This song is destined to make your wedding day enjoyable.
I do by Willy Paul and Alaine
Now, this is indeed a wedding song. The beauty in its lyrics can’t help but fit the moment perfectly. The song talks about a bride and a groom saying I do at their wedding. It’s a bit slow but catchy and will make anyone dance, even those without the perfect dance moves won’t have a problem on this one. The beauty of this song is that you maintain class and elegance, yet create the fun at the same time.
“Aje” by DMW feat. Davido, Yonda, Peruzzi & Fresh VDM
For the crazy and funny couple that is sure of their dance moves, then this is the best song for you. The song talks about a guy’s extra love for a girl. If you are a fun of Nigerian weddings, you must have seen a dozen of couples rocking to this song. It is very catchy and can’t help but rock the crowd too.
“I love you” by Radio&Weasel ft Vampino
This Ugandan beat is the real deal old school beat. It has been around for more than five years but is still a hit at weddings. Its lyrics are directed to the bride, whose man is assuring her of his feelings towards her, promising to even let her parents know. This song will bring back the memories for your guests. It’s sweet, yet relatively slower tempo is also something you can dance to modestly if too much movement is not your thing.
“Gbona” by Burna Boy
This song has been hitting way since last year and yet people still cheer when it’s beats hit the radio speakers. Sometimes that’s all you need, a beat that will make your guests excited even before you pull off any strokes. The song begins with words related to entering and party and shaking one’s body, and that’s exactly what you are doing. This hit is among the songs that work for the ‘am sure of my dance moves’ couple.
“Only you” by Ric Hassani
Ric Hassani has made himself a stamp in the romantic music world with his heartfelt lyrics. This song expresses a groom’s love for his new wife describing her as his only love. It just says it all and will make the atmosphere of your wedding sweet and romantic.
“Can’t stop the feeling” by Justin Timberlake
This is a song talking about an uncontrollable feeling of happiness and guess what? It’s your wedding so you most definitely are happy. With its happy beats and lyrics going, “Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance,” it just sparks off a groove that will light up the moment.
“No one like you” by Psquare
This is an old jam but whenever it plays at a wedding, it’s like it was just released yesterday. This song needs no introduction, it is simply a song to seriously consider at your wedding.
“My darling” by Tiwa Savage
Unlike most wedding songs, this song is directed to the groom. Most songs played are usually directed to the bride to make her feel special but how about twisting it a bit and making your groom feel special too. Throwing in this song breaks the monotony and proves the love of a bride for her husband.
“All I want is you” by Chidinma & Banky W
This song has a spark that it brings in you. The moment you listen to it, you can’t help but fall in love again. It will do just good at a wedding too because it expresses emotions in the best way possible.
Many songs are beautiful and will make glorious memories for you. However, make sure to have the right dance moves for the songs, dress appropriately for the dances and consider your audience before deciding what is appropriate and what is not.
