This summer I’m getting married in a field in a state park. One thing has me stumped. I’m not sure how to arrive to the ceremony.
For guests, we are planning on having a golf cart bring guests from the parking area to the ceremony.
The issue is that there are no buildings to wait in or walk out of when it’s time for the ceremony to start. A road runs adjacent to the field, but we are planning on having the ceremony away from the road to avoid noise and to take advantage of the mountain views. I could arrive in a car, but I don’t know how practical it is for the car to drive out in the field, and I don’t want to leave guests waiting.
I’ve seen other brides who have set up a tent near the ceremony to wait in, then they just walk out of the tent when it’s time to start. Is this tacky?
Any ideas are appreciated.
I tried uploading pictures, but it’s not working 🙁

I’m having the same problem. My walk is long until I get to the aisle and I want a grand entrance. I saw a video on pinterest where the bridesmaid walk in a cirlce, the bride being in the middle, to the aisle then the ushers each hold a rustic door letting each girl through, then the bride has a grand entrance. Hard to explain but I just looked for 5 minutes trying to find the video but had no luck, I’ll keep looking and post it if I find it.

I like the idea of having the bridesmaids surrounding you as you walk to an arch or something that everyone can go through individually. Also, if the paddock is smooth enough, then driving through it should be perfectly fine – I doubt anyone will think it odd if the bride gets a car to the end of the aisle. They might think it’s strange if you try to walk the whole distance in heels and a big dress!

I think the circle idea is really cute, but we’re not having any attendants, so it’s just going to be me and my dad walking up the aisle.
I like the idea of having doors that close at the end, but I don’t know how feasible this will be since we’re setting up Friday night and getting married Sat afternoon.

I am trying to figure out the same thing. I found this great picture using a burlap curtain I am thinking about doing something like that or having my FH and family help build an outdoor chapel out of old doors and wood that will open right before I walk down the isle.
