The bridal party has just finished a beautiful and romantic wedding ceremony. Now they’re ready to celebrate with their friends and family! But how does the bridal party walk into the reception?
Whether you’re hosting your wedding at home or in a large hotel, you need to make sure that the bridal party has everything they need to be comfortable. Luckily, there are many things you can do to ensure that your bridesmaids and groomsmen feel at ease before they enter the reception.
First and foremost, make sure that your bridesmaids and groomsmen are in good spirits before they walk down the aisle. They’ll need to be happy and excited to participate in your grand entrance, so make sure they have some fun decorations or a pom-pom boa in their hair to get them in the mood.
Next, the groom will walk down the aisle with his groomsmen and best man in tow. They’ll usually enter from the side to allow the best man to take his place at the altar. This is a great way for him to be recognized by his peers and give them a view of the bride’s entrance.
Once the groom and groomsmen have entered, the bridesmaids will enter in pairs as well. This means that the bridesmaid who is closest to the groom will come in first, followed by the other bridesmaids in order of rank.
Finally, the best man and maid of honor will come in last as they walk down the aisle to be recognized by their peers and their bridesmaids. They’ll often also be the ones who carry the bride’s bouquet or ring.
The ring bearer is the next member of the wedding procession, and they walk down the aisle with their parents or other loved ones. They’ll usually stand with the groomsmen, but they can also sit down in front of the rest of the wedding party if they’re too young to join them.
If you’re planning on having a flower girl, she’ll also walk down the aisle. She’ll scatter flowers to get everyone in the right mindset before she makes her way to the wedding party at the altar or to her family members in the crowd.
Child attendants are usually between four and seven years old, but you can have younger children if you wish. They can act as leaders and help out with the bridesmaids and groomsmen if they’re not too young to do so.
Another option is to have them come down the aisle wearing their own hats or sunglasses and then walk into the reception together with their parents and grandparents. This is a cute and fun way to add a little personality to your wedding.
Once the bridesmaids and groomsmen have made it into the reception, the MC will make an announcement that all guests are welcome to begin dancing. This is a great time to have a DJ or emcee play an upbeat dance song so that people are ready to go!
