I have officiated hundreds of weddings and I’ve noticed that the groom doesn’t get special music to come in the wedding site. Why is that? The mom’s get special music, the bridesmaids get special music and sometimes the ring bearer and flower girl will get special music. Why not the groom? Of course the bride always gets her special music. Although I have noticed thankfully it is not always Here comes the Bride! Canon in D and even At Last are awesome for the bride, but again…what about the groom? Isn’t it his special day too? Shouldn’t his favorite song be played or at least something to signify a change and that he is going to be making an appearance?
I hang out with the guys a lot, I always tell the groom, “I’ve got your back”…then he asks me when will I know when it is time to come out? “So, do you have special music?” Of course he doesn’t know! So, I check in with the DJ. As usual, he doesn’t!
It is the groom’s special day and I really think he should have his special music too, even if it is selected by the bride!
