@sarasbluegroove:  To be honest (and this is just my opinion so take it with a grain of salt!) I really think that the bridal party entrance thing is a bit awkward and dated.  Our bridal party will just be quietly joining the rest of the guests at cocktail hour before the meal starts.  None of the 6 people in our bridal party are upset at all about this – they’ve all said separately that they would be really uncomfortable with the introduction thing.

Get bubble blowers. The men can shoot bubbles (wearing sunglasses) while walking down the aisle. I think, bubble blowers/guns are quite unisex anyway.

@ebarnes0:  +1, I am not a fan of big elaborate things. We are all just going to walk in with no fanfare whatsoever and then have the MC introduce people by name when we’re sitting down. OP, it sounds like your group would be more comfortable with something simple like that. You don’t need to do anything flashy!

If you party is introverted, I’d skip the enterance.  It can be fun if you have a group that’s really into it, but I think most find it embarassing making it awkward for all.

At many weddings these days there is no grand entrance, or only the married couples does the entrance.

Just have them walk in one by one, while the MC introduces them (their name, how they know the couple, where they’re from, what they do, or something)?  I’ve had to run inside the reception hall, paired with a groomsman, pumping my fist up and it was painful.  And dancing in to the reception hall is super awkward to watch unless they are all good dancers.
