So… you’ve said your “I do’s,” and your ceremony has come to a close, now it’s onto the party! While your ceremony is every bit as important (some would say, the most important), your wedding reception is where you get to celebrate your nuptials in whatever way you so choose!
So, whether you and your sweetie are planning a cocktail hour, a fancy sit-down dinner, or maybe even a beach party, making your grand entrance will help to set the tone for your reception and can help get the party started!
To that end… are you and your new spouse hoping to make a grand, surprising, jaw-dropping entrance, or are you simply planning something traditional or meaningful? No matter what you decide, and what your comfort level is, there are lots of great options for every couple. After all, this is going to be your first introduction as a married couple. Why not make it special?
Start The Reception Dancing!
You can have your DJ or MC announce your grand entrance, and play one of your favorite bumping dance songs! For extra effect, how about choreographing a little dance for you and your bridal party! If you’re ready to shake your groove thang, then this option may be for you!
Reception Dance Train!
Maybe you want to enter the room conga line style with your bridal party, creating a winding path through the room, picking up guests along the way! The Conga line is over when every guest is up! Then once everyone is on the dance floor, your DJ or MC can officially introduce you as a married couple, to the cheers and applause of your guests!
Whether you are planning a destination wedding and want to embrace the local culture, you want to celebrate and embrace your heritage or that of your new spouse, or you simply love mariachi music, you’re sure to bring the party with this grand entrance!
Take The Stairs!
If your reception space has stairs, be sure to utilize them! You could dress them up with overflowing bouquets or greenery, or keep things plain and simple if you prefer. Either way, a grand entrance down a grand staircase is sure to draw all eyes to the two of you as you enter the venue for the first time as a married couple. You’re sure to feel like the romantic leads in your very own romcom!
Dramatic Sparkler Entrance!
Planning on hosting an evening ceremony followed by a cocktail reception?! While a grand exit with sparklers is an ever popular idea, you can also do it in reverse! Our indoor fireworks add a dramatic WOW factor and set the stage for a truly magical reception experience!
