"Le plus beau jour de ma vie" ("The most beautiful day of my life") was the second Belgian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1956, performed in French by Mony Marc.

The song was performed tenth on the night (following Switzerland's Lys Assia with "Refrain" and preceding Germany's Freddy Quinn with "So geht das jede Nacht"). As the scoreboard for the 1956 Contest has never been made public, it is impossible to say with certainty which position this song held at the close of voting.

The song is in the chanson style and describes the singer's wedding, which she describes as the best day of her life.

The song was accompanied at the 1956 contest by Fud Leclerc with "Messieurs les noyés de la Seine" and was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 1957 contest by Bobbejaan Schoepen with "Straatdeuntje".
