Today I’m sharing some excellent recessional and/or reception entrance songs for a Las Vegas wedding.
Viva Las Vegas â€“ Elvis Presley
Whatâ€™s a Vegas wedding without a little Elvis? Or if thatâ€™s too obvious, you can alternatively use another version â€“ ZZ Top and Bruce Springsteen both made it their own.
Ainâ€™t That A Kick In The Head â€“ Dean Martin
Any song by any member of the Rat Pack just makes sense in Vegas. Plus the lyrics to this song are perfectly fitting for a wedding.
Luck Be A Lady â€“ Frank Sinatra
See previous Rat Pack comment. Not to mention the Vegas-y lyrics. All the better if you have your DJ or iPod controller cut straight to the chorus as you exit your ceremony or enter the party.
Letâ€™s Go To Vegas â€“ Faith Hill
For the country lovers out there â€“ this one is perfection. â€œHey baby letâ€™s go to Vegas, kiss the single life goodbyeâ€¦ bet on love and let it ride.”
Vegas Nights â€“ Baby Bash, Jump Smokers
This song brings the party. If you want to get your guests ready to dance their faces off, this is a great option to get them going.
Vegas â€“ Calvin Harris
Another great party song. If you donâ€™t mind the obvious mention of drugs, this song packs a punch.
Phamous â€“ The Midi Mafia featuring Chanel
This song just makes you want to throw your hands in the air. After all, everyoneâ€™s famous in Vegas!
Life Vegas â€“ Felt
This is another one that needs to cut straight to the chorus, since the verses are questionable. The chorus will definitely get your guests in the party mood. â€œThe city that stays up all night, itâ€™s all rightâ€¦ Hit me, raise it, lift my chance, life is like Vegas.
Get Lucky â€“ Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams
You canâ€™t go wrong with this hit. Youâ€™re bound to hear it at every wedding you go to right now since itâ€™s on top of the charts. Plus everyone wants to get lucky in Vegas. ;)
Married In Vegas â€“ Manafest
Self explanatory. â€œI got married in Vegas, Iâ€™m so glad that you made it. â€˜Cause weâ€™ll be cutting the rug â€˜til the sun comes up, singing la di da di da di da di da.â€
Heaven Or Las Vegas â€“ Cocteau Twins
For quirky/unique couples. You canâ€™t really make out any of the lyrics in this song except for â€œheaven or Las Vegas,â€ but it has an super cool sound.
A Little Less Conversation â€“ Elvis Presley
Just thought Iâ€™d start and end this playlist where everything starts and ends in Vegas â€“ with Elvis.
You can listen to these songs and a few more on our Vegas Spotify playlist. And if you donâ€™t want to be in everyoneâ€™s face with the Vegas theme, check out other options on our RecessionalSongs post.
