Sorry, do you mean into the ceremony or the reception?

We didn’t have any of our grandparents walk into the reception or ceremony in any way that would call attention to them.  They were just there when we arrived.

my grandma was in a wheelchair and my parents weren’t talking, so we didn’t have parents or grandparents walk into the reception. just bridal party.

For the reception?  No.  Only for the ceremony.

We had the parents and grandmothers walk in the processional but only our parents were announced into the reception. This is normally how I’ve seen it done at other weddings I’ve attended too.
