    karotop2588:  I think that your entrance song should be what you want it to be! I think that’s awesome and regardless of whether the Buckeyes lose (I doubt it but it wouldn’t be a huge shock since Braxton is out for the season) or people are “salty” about you getting married on a football Saturday they will get over it!

    We had the bridal party come out to a different song than we did-it kind of created a nice build up because the song they came out to stopped, and ours started to fade in and the DJ pumped it up nicely. If you’re worried about the bridesmaids not being huge fans, you could always do something like that. Although my personal opinion is that it’s your day-not theirs! You will or have walked out to something at their wedding you may not have liked so it’s really not a big deal, IMO.

    karotop2588:  People will have their opinions about that. If the game is more important than your wedding (newsflash: it’s not) then they can choose not to attend. You picked your date for whatever personal or planning reasons and your guests can deal with it. I’m a huge Buckeyes fan and I am all about Buckeye Nation, but my friends life events are more important to me than a game. I’m missing the season opener for a wedding this weekend and I’m not the least bit upset!

    karotop2588:  I say go for it (even as a Wolverine!)  I was in a wedding where there was a UCLA vs USC theme and the bridesmaids all came in to the UCLA fight song while the groomsmen came in to the USC fight song.  It was fun!

    If DH and I could agree on a team we would have probably done similar for our enterance.  As far as football weekends, DH is a Wisconsin fan, and we are missing the Wisconsin Vs. LSU game this weekend for a wedding.  While he might want to watch the game, we are doing this for friends, and they are more important than one game.

    I surprised my daughter’s bridal party, at her wedding last year (the groom and 6 of 12 attendants are Penn State grads), by having the band play two PSU songs. The bridal party entered to Gary Glitter’s Rock and Roll, Part 2 – the Lions football team enters the field to that tune and all the guests were singing along and waving their napkins, to simulate a “white-out” game. When the band’s vocalist yelled “Are you ready to rock and roll?,” to start off the song, I thought the 1st man and maid – both PSU grads – were going to fall over in shock.

    When the bride and groom entered, we were still waving napkins and singing, but this time to the song that’s sung by the PSU student section, between the 3rd and 4th quarter of every game -“”Heyyy Baby, I wanna knowww, If you’ll be My Girl.” Everyone said it was the most exciting bridal party entrance they’ve ever seen; there was so much energy, in the room.

    goblueca:  I LOVE that! I went to USC and to this day, I get really excited by the sound of our fanfare! I’d personally love to walk into our reception to it but FI is not a fan (or American, so college football is a bit lost on him). 

    OP: Go for it! Sounds like a good time and your guests will enjoy your enthusiasm if they see you walking in to a song you love. 😀

    I think you should do whatever makes you happy because it’s your wedding and it’s your day. And I went to Michigan, so the fact that I’m supporting this decision says a lot 

    Go Blue!

    MY FFIL is a huge West Virginia fan. The day of our wedding is also his 80th birthday. So, we are having a surprise birthday cake brought out for him (in lieu of a groom’s cake) and they are going to play the WVU Fight Song. It’s your wedding, do what makes you happy!!!!

    karotop2588:  My FI and I are huge FSU fans and I have been tossing up the idea of doing the Seminole Warchant as our entrance song. Mainly because our colors are red, gold, champagne, and ivory. I say do it!

    sahanarajana:  go blue! i’m a fellow wolverine too. 

    but i don’t think you should enter with this, not because i’m a umich alumnus, i just feel like it’s not very wedding-ish. i don’t think sports belong at weddings. again, it’s really all personal opinion.

    I’m incorporating a lot of Auburn stuff into our wedding and FI doesn’t know this – he is graduating in a year with his PhD from Auburn, and I know it’ll make him happy.  Do what YOU want, I personally would love a fight song.

    I know some friends of his had the Vol Walk “Rocky Top” song at their wedding 😀  It’s unique and priceless, and I think really makes a wedding.

    Your entrance song should be about you two, so I vote a BIG yes to having the Ohio State song.
