Music to Introduce Your Wedding Speeches
The wedding is all about the two of you, but the speeches give some exposure to other people who have played a huge role in your wedding day preparations.
You’ll need just the right music to introduce wedding speeches—so that your guests will know when the speeches are beginning, and possibly to help your speakers know when to stop!
Even though the people who stand up and speak at your reception are keeping the focus on you, it highlights people from each side of the family so your guests can get to know the key players in your lives. For example, the groom’s Great Uncle Poindexter most likely has no knowledge about the bride’s sister who is also, today, the maid of honour.
Wedding speeches also give the parents—usually just the fathers—who have opened not just their hearts but their wallets for this wonderful event. Even if you’ve paid for the wedding entirely yourselves, it’s traditional for elder males on both sides of the family to stand up and say something.
Wedding speeches are generally humorous and whimsical.
The music you choose to introduce them should be fun and sharp—a cue to let people know that something of note is about to take place. If one of your speechmakers gets stuck, not knowing how to wind down the speech, some well-placed laughter and the music reprising will give the speaker an easy way to wind things up.
Similarly, if someone has had a little too much to drink before the speeches, or if Uncle Herbert is tossed and he just decides he should stand up and put in his two cents’ worth, wedding speech music can be a harmless way to signal the end before things get calamitous.
Your wedding DJ will know how to handle such situations.
Few people have the creativity to come up a video in lieu of the speech as the two brothers did in the popular September 2013 wedding speech video that’s gone viral.
They were afraid they would break down giving speeches, and they made a hilarious video instead, which you can view here.
Assuming you want to keep things more traditional, consider these musical selections (Along with our mega list at the top of the page) as your intro and possibly your wrap-up to speech time:
• For a suave and dapper best man or father of the bride (or groom), get them started with the theme for James Bond. And just in case you need to cut off somebody who’s too long-winded or inappropriate, use the rousing Goldfinger.
• To introduce the same people but with a little more humour, have the DJ play the theme from Austin Powers.
• The theme from Peter Gunn won an Emmy and a pair of Grammy awards for its composer, Henry Mancini. Even if people don’t know the name of this song, from a television show that ended in 1961, they will certainly know the tune. You can have the DJ wrap up the speeches with the Blues Brothers version of this theme song.
• What could be more appropriate than the theme song from the Newlywed Game television show?
• If the bride and groom go nuts over football—weddings have been planned around football schedules—use the NFL theme song. Wrap it up if you need to get the best man to sit down with the theme from Cops—Bad Boys.
• When it’s time for the maid of honour to say her piece, introduce her with the theme from Sex and the City.
• The opening bars from Flashdance make another great intro for the maid of honour.
• Your wedding has not been Mission Impossible, but it still makes good wedding speech music to get people’s attention.
• Whether the groom stands up to speak varies from wedding to wedding, but if it’s on your agenda, the wedding DJ can introduce him with the theme from Rocky.
Songs that most of your wedding guests will recognise or at least understand the meaning of is the key to a great choice!
People have spent most of the past year talking about McFly musician Tom Fletcher’s song in lieu of a wedding speech.
While it’s fun to watch and gets top marks for creativity and originality, don’t make the mistake of singing your speech unless you do what Fletcher does—sing for a living.
Most people will just be happy to see the key players in the wedding party stand up to say a few words and thank the people who put their time and money into it.
Don’t be shy about indulging your hobbies, however. For someone who loves superhero movies, you can incorporate theme songs from Spiderman, Superman, or any of the caped wonders. Cartoon lovers can find plenty of ideas by searching for cartoon theme songs on Amazon.
Your wedding DJ will be happy to help you find just the right music to introduce your wedding speeches.
