Unique Ideas for your Bridal Entrance

You have been planning all the details of your wedding ceremony and reception, and this is one of the most important and thrilling days of your lives.  This is your opportunity to celebrate and showcase your relationship and style.


Many couples choose traditional songs and processionals, while others make their wedding ceremony their own style with special songs, routines and surprising twists.  Create your wedding day that will be remembered for years to come by planning a special entrance into your ceremony.  Like the picture below, have the curtains closed to be drawn back magically and held in place while the Bride walks down.


If you are getting married in a church, you can use their projector screens or large television screens  to create a slideshow to be played before the Processional.  If in another venue, you can rent one large screen to put up front so all of your guests can see the pictures.  You could also time your slideshow so pictures of each member of your bridal party appears on the screen as they walk down the aisle. When the Bride enters and walks down the aisle, you could have one of your engagement pictures shown leaving it up on the screen.  This way, the guests will see the picture and will then turn their attention from the picture to the Bride as she makes that special walk to her Groom.


Depending on the location of your wedding, your can arrive in a non-traditional way.  If it is an outdoor wedding, the Bride could arrive on a horse drawn carriage:

With an outdoor wedding near a lake or river, the Bride could arrive by boat:


You could consider adding a small band for your ceremony processional.  Have pre-recorded music play for the Prelude, Special Seating and Wedding Party entrance.  When it is time for the Bride to enter, have the musicians play your bridal entrance song.  They could sit to the far right or left near the front.  Your band could consist of three, four or more musicians including perhaps guitars, trumpets, piano, and strings.  The music will magically fill the room for the Bride's walk down the aisle.

Take your time and think about what kind of mood you want to set for your very special day.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you want to look back and treasure this day for years to come.
