The wedding reception entrance is an important moment of the wedding and the start of the marriage of the bride and groom. It is the first time that the couple presents themselves as husband and wife after the altar. More importantly (or maybe just more fun), it marks the start of celebration with friends and family. A couple can make the wedding reception entrance as fun or as sentimental as they want to make it to fit their personalities.
You can set the mood with the music that you choose. You can make the wedding reception entrance dramatic with epic music, fun or funny with your favorite oldie, or sweet and sentimental with a classic love song.
Your entrance itself can be as unique as you guys as well. If you want to involve your friends and family in your wedding reception entrance, you can have them make a tunnel for you. Or, they can hold up a paper poster for you and your new husband to burst through (think high school pep rally). If you want to make it entertaining for your guests, you can enter with a dance – perhaps a choreographed dance (like this or this). Or, for something sweet and momentous, do an ‘unveiling’ of you guys as a newlywed couple. This can be done using using curtains, hanging garland, a staircase or anything else your imagination can come up with.
Regardless of how you choose to make your wedding reception entrance, be sure to capture it on camera. It is sure to be a memorable moment full of love and excitement. It is a once in a lifetime occasion that you will want to remember forever.
