The Best Bridal Party Entrance Songs
Thinking Out Loud- Ed Sheeran
Many of Ed Sheeran’s songs are very wedding appropriate such as ‘Perfect’ and ‘Kiss me’, but ‘Thinking Out Loud’ is a classic-sounding tune with a bit of pop in it but mostly piano playing in the background. It incorporates some excitement without being a disco tune which would be off-putting for a bridal entry song. It is great if the couple is entering together or separately as it can be adapted in both cases.
