Classic R & B Grooms Entrance Songs

Hi my name is Jack Barros Welcome to the Wedding Ceremony Music Series. Today’s issue is Classic R & B Songs for the Grooms Entrance Music.

This series is for brides, grooms and wedding industry professionals.  The Wedding Ceremony Music Series is all about different genres of music with example songs that can be used for various parts of an American wedding ceremony. Adult Contemporary, Christian, Country, R & B, Reggae, Rock and more are covered in various issues.

The songs come from my book Bridal Songs Your Guide to Wedding Ceremony Music 2nd Edition

Quick note although these songs have been listed in the Grooms Entrance chapter, they may be used elsewhere in an American wedding ceremony.

I chose to publish this list because of an upcoming wedding where we will be using the Grooms Entrance to start the wedding ceremony. It is not often that a Grooms entrance song is played in an American wedding ceremony. After the pre-bridal consultation with this couple, I am excited about this unusual ceremony.

This wedding reception takes place on the seaside of the Lighthouse Inn in West Dennis. A truly fantastic view of the ocean will be the back drop for this sunset ceremony.

The guests will start with dinner inside the Inn, Theresa doesn’t want anyone hungry, and then the bride & groom will change for their seaside wedding ceremony. Theresa & James are an R & B wedding couple and as we discussed the details of the ceremony James mentioned that he wanted one song played during the ceremony.

The classic R & B song Let’s Get Married by Jagged Edge. He wanted Theresa to ‘Meet me at the altar in your white dress’. The grooms entrance was the perfect place for James to play ‘his’ song that will set up the mood for the night for their guests.

‘Let’s burn up the night together, baby’ from Kool & the Gang’s ‘Big Fun’ will have your guests dancing in their chairs as the groom comes into the room.

‘I was blessed the day I found you, I want to build my whole world around you’ will put goosebumps on the arms of your guests as you come into the room to ‘You’re My Everything’ by the Temptations.

Music sets the stage for the mood you want to create. ‘Now that we’ve come to the end of our rainbow, there is something I must say out loud’ ‘you’re once, twice, Three Times A Lady’ by Lionel Ritchie and the Commodores gets everyone into the moment.

‘Mama told me, she said, son please beware, there’s a thing called love’ ‘It’s To Late To Turn Back Now’ ‘I believe, I believe I’m falling in love’ from Cornelius Bros and Sister Rose.

From the very first note of the Four Tops version of ‘I Believe in You & Me’ everyone can feel the love. Whitney Houston covered the song, though I prefer the Four Tops.

There you have a few great classic R & B Grooms Entrance songs. For some this will be a walk down memory lane. I enjoyed listening to the songs as I wrote this artilcle. Almost as enjoyable was going through the R & B Grooms Entrance chapter of ‘Bridal Songs Your Guide to Wedding Ceremony Music’. There were these classics along with a lot of contemporary songs for this often-unused opportunity for the groom to express his feelings.
