Wedding Reception Entrance Ideas

There are lots about a wedding day that is traditional. There’s certain milestones throughout the day, that are truly magical and ones you’ll look back on. There’s the walk down the aisle. The couple seeing each other for the first time. The kiss after becoming married, the speeches, the first dance and the cutting of the cake.

But one of the most underrated parts of the day is the entrance into the meal as a married couple. It is one of those parts of the day that most couples doesn’t give a thought to, but it is one of the most enjoyable. It’s the first time you’ll be referred to as Mr & Mrs, Mrs & Mrs Mr & Mr, or the bride and groom etc. Generally your guests all rise to their feet and cheer and clap and it’s just a truly relaxed beautiful moment.

So why not give some thought to how you’re actually going to do your entrance? From flash mobs, to balloon drops to everything in between, there are plenty of ways to really make your entrance.

If you’d like to chat about this or any other aspect of your wedding day plans, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly.

 

Music or Dance

Whether you have a favourite song you both love to absolutely boogie too, or you want to surprise your guests with a specially choreographed routine to knock their socks off, this sort of entrance, really defines the expression ‘making an entrance!’ If you do go for this option, then go all the way with it. Do make sure you discuss it with your other half first, as going off half-cocked freestyle can lead to disaster. Remember though, everyone who is there is a friend or family so they’ll all be cheering you on.

 

Balloon Drop

Why not go for something really unexpected like a balloon, rose petal or confetti drop? This still give the entrance a fun element, but takes the pressure off the couple to perform.

 

 

Quirky Ideas

Why not arrive into the venue with the bride on the groom’s back piggyback or fireman’s lift style? Or have a finish line set up and run through it? Or what about being lead in by a live singer or why not dim the light sin the room and come in with sparklers or have a light show organised?

 

Flash Mob

This one involves the entire bridal party so get your bridesmaids and best man in on the action. Arrive into the venue in whatever style you wish, generally to music and then usher the rest of the crowd onto the dancefloor too. Its huge fun and a great way to break the ice before the meal and speeches too.

Get Granny in the Bridal Party

When it comes to weddings these days, the idea of keeping to tradition or in with convention is thankfully on the wane. Today couples are going for weddings that reflect them as individuals and their families. They are no longer bound by having to get married in churches, or even indoors!

Different venues, faiths and arrangements are opening up whole new worlds for weddings and truly nothing is out of reach when it comes to your wedding dreams.

And one trend that’s really caught my eye in recent years is to have you grandmother serve as your bridesmaid or flower girl! It’s a truly heart-warming move that’s becoming more and more popular.

If you’d like to chat about this or any other aspect of your wedding day plans, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly.

 

Bridesmaid

The online world went into a frenzy recently when stories surfaced of brides asking their grandmothers who were in their 80s or even 90s to be their grandmothers. It’s not only captured people’s imagination, but it also was as if a lightbulb collectively went off in many a brides head! Often we are very close to our grandmothers and if we’re lucky enough to have them around when we do walk down the aisle, then it makes perfect sense to get them involved. Before you go off gung-ho to ask though, do make sure it’s something your grandmother would be comfortable with. Otherwise think about creating a special role for her (see below)

 

 

Flower Girl

The role of bridesmaid can be a little full-on for some grandmothers, so if she is not keen to be a bona-fide bridesmaid or you already have a full complement of bridesmaids but still want your granny to be in the mix, then why not ask her to be a flower girl? If you’re lucky enough to have two grandmothers who are willing, then they not have them both walk down the aisle with some bespoke baskets and petals.

 

Create a Role

Weddings can sometimes involve politics especially when it comes to choosing bridesmaids, groomsmen, and flowers girls. So if you’ve already got these positions filled, but you still want to have your grandmother involved, then why not create a special role just for her? Why not have her lead the procession down the aisle? She would walk first, then the flower girls, then the bridesmaids, followed by the bride! In fact, it would be a wonderful way to have the matriarch of the family kick things off.

 

Why Not Get Grandad Involved?

There’s no rule that says getting involved in the bridal party is just for the grannies! Why not have grandad serve as an usher or groomsman on the big day. Or why not have him and granny serve as de-facto flower girls either?

Edible Wedding Favours

Having a wedding favour for each guest is not only a lovely surprise for your family and friends, but it also allows you to channel your creative side. Try and pick an item that fits in with your overall theme if you can and something you know your guests will enjoy.

Sometimes it can be hard to pick something that’s going to appeal to both men and women and to all ages. So an edible favour is an obvious choice because it will delight everyone universally.

There’s a huge scope of options when it comes to this choice, you could go for something as simple as a single chocolate, up to elaborate items like homemade jams or mini cakes.

Try and find something that’s going to fit in with your overall budget and will be appealing to everyone.

Sweet Treats

It’s a safe bet that most people love a sweet treat. Weddings can be very long days for guests, if they’ve had to get up early, make a long journey etc, they may not have eaten properly for hours and would like nothing more than a treat to whet their appetite before the meal. Think about everything from a single macaroon, to an iced cookie, mini cake, donuts.

 

Savoury

Cheese is a great choice, especially if the couple are big cheese lovers but don’t want to go all out on a cheese wedding cake. Think about some mini varieties of your favourites parcelled up with crackers and even a personalised mini cheese knife. Or what about a single piece of sushi or bento box? Chutneys are also a good choice, as are some mini loaves or artisan styles of bread packaged in personalised paper bags. And the piece de resistance has to be Tayto crisps and bread which guest can keep for their midnight snack.

 

Personalised

Any kind of edible favour will be even more appreciate if you can personalise it. It will of course take a little extra time and effort but if you can afford do to it, it’s really worth it. You can put each guests name on the item, or perhaps find out their favourite flavour of whatever you are offering – be in a cake, macaroon, cookie, jam or drink.

 

DIY

If you’re a dab hand and making things at home, then this is the perfect time to flex those muscles for good. Think about making things like Jam or honey in personalised jars. What about whipping up some Sloe Gin, flavoured vodka, or homebrew? Or why not let the guests get in on the DIY action with some jars filled with hot chocolate or cookie mix?
