I have been to a lot of weddings, and the majority of them introduced the parents and bridal party before announcing the entrance of the newlyweds. When I say ‘introduced’, I mean each person or group came out to a song picked for or by them, sometimes wore sunglasses or other fun embellishments, danced, piggybacked, etc their way to their seat. While I have always gotten a laugh out of these entrances, they just aren’t fitting to my wedding or the people in our family and bridal party. Is it ok to skip this part and just announce the bride and groom?

I can honestly say that I’ve never been to a wedding where people were required to make a fools of themselves as part of the introductory process! I can see that it might suit some people but it’d just leave most people I know (and trust me, we do know how to have fun!) open-mouthed with “WTF?”
It’s perfectly OK to just introduce the bride and groom. Always remember, it’s your wedding. Not a three-ring circus.

- Wedding: June 2014 - Gold Hill Gardens
Toronto2014: we didn’t have our parents introduced, just our (very small) wedding party. They didn’t do anything big, just walked down the hill to U2 – Beautiful Day while their names were read. Then we walked down the hill to Sister Hazel – One Love. If you don’t want them to do an entrance, then don’t. If you want something simple, then do that. If you want elaborate, go elaborate! Do what fits you 🙂
