For weddings, you just believe that the bride will be entering to the same, old, traditional, “Bridal March” or “Here Comes the Bride song. For many couples that are planning their wedding, this is not a piece they truly like, but wedding entrance songs are almost never discussed. Most couples through the ages have done exactly the same thing. In today's weddings, the couples consider that they are a unique couple and many of the newer generation want more non-mainstream wedding entrance songs.

The 10 most unique wedding entrance songs are a matter of taste, but most of them are still a bit on the traditional side, just more contemporary in style. For instance, “Love Train by The O'Jays or “Celebration” by Kool and The Gang were well-known songs a couple decades ago and every generation knows them, so they would be among unique wedding entrance songs.

They have lyrics and music that can get a crowd clapping, but it might shock grandmother to see the bride coming down the aisle to this. Don't be surprised to see her clapping by the time you get to the altar, though. They can make a wedding enjoyable, take the pressure off and for the right couples, with extroverted personalities, they can make their wedding an enjoyable and unforgettable occasion. Sure, it will be unique, too.

“Heaven Must Have Sent You” by Bonnie Pointer or “I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You” by Savage Garden are a couple of romantic songs that make appropriate, yet unique wedding entrance songs, for instance. You have to think of personal taste and the audience, so most brides and grooms have aged relatives to keep in mind.

That's not to say that some don't select something on the other extreme for unique wedding entrance songs. Romantic songs that say how you feel towards each other can make superb wedding entrance songs and some couples always refer to it as “our song. In the end, it's a day of expressing your love to each other, even if the entire wedding guests doesn't necessarily see it the same way.

“St. Elmo's Fire” by John Parr or “2001 Space Odyssey Theme” by Richard Strauss are unique wedding entrance songs that are mainy effective for night-time, outdoor theme weddings, official contemporary weddings and you can use unusual effects, such as tiki torches or a disco ball to complete the theme. Choosing unique wedding entrance songs are easier, if you have a unique theme to your wedding.

“It Had to Be You” by Harry Connick, Jr. or “The Best Is Yet to Come” by Frank Sinatra will be crowd pleasing, unique wedding entrance songs for all ages. The elderly relatives will especially love them and for nostalgic weddings, they express romance, love and individuality.

Surely, for the most unique wedding entrance songs, “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osborne or “Tribal Dance” by 2 Unlimited fit the bill for a number of couples. These are not for everybody, but some of the younger hip-hop crowd, or the heavy metal rockers might prefer wedding entrance songs like these, so don't be surprised if you know somebody that mentions them.

When it comes to wedding entrance songs, these ten most unique wedding entrance songs are a sampling. It is pretty much dictated by the song that most signifies the way you want your day to be remembered.

Interesting list, even if some of it is a bit cheesy.

On a slightly different subject, we had our first dance at my wedding was to ?It wasn't me' by Shaggy. ??
