YES! You have made it down the aisle and are finally married. Walking into your reception is kind of a big deal, and you don’t want to wait until the day to figure out how you’re going to make your grand entrance! These days, not only your videographer and photographer will be capturing the big moment but also a room full of smartphones, and could possibly be shared over multiple media platforms, no pressure though!
Walk Into Your Wedding Reception Like a Boss in Bentonville, AR
Don’t worry, there is no need for sifting through forums on The Knot and YouTube videos. At Complete Weddings + Events, we’ve witnessed thousands of entrances through the years (some awesome, and some not so awesome). From choreographed dances to a sports-themed grand entrance. Since we’ve seen it all we put together the perfect guide on how to walk into your wedding reception like a boss!
Don’t be afraid to be goofy. If it’s not a little awkward when you walk into your wedding reception you’re not doing it right. In order to pull off a fun grand entrance you have to fully commit, and remember that everyone is there to celebrate YOU! When the guests see you having fun, it automatically sets the tone for the rest of the reception. Comedy is your friend!
Get Everybody Involved
Get the whole bridal party on board. The couple is the main attraction, but it’s even better when the whole group gets in on the fun to build up the momentum for the newlyweds big announcement! Encourage them to get creative, and props are always a fun addition. Sunglasses, hats, boas, wings, or switching outfits (pending both parties are on board) can take the grand entrance from bland to grand. Props help take some of the pressure off because there’s something else for people to focus on, and they help spur creativity!
Some people go for the wow factor and others go for sweet and romantic -but whatever you do, make sure it feels authentic for you. At the end of the day, you want to have fun and able to enjoy YOUR moment to its fullest.
