My fh wants to eliminate the awkward coupling of bridesmaids and grooms men. I agree it’s a fun idea since we have a bridesman, and majority of the bridesmaids are significantly taller than the groomsmen. They don’t know eachother so why force them to couple up its awkward for everyone is his argument and I can’t say I completely disagree.
we run into a problem with the reception. How do you think we should introduce the wedding party? One by one is uncomfortable for shy people as well will take a long time. I am out of ideas and I would like to stick with my fh’s idea. Help?

- Wedding: May 2015 - St Peter's Church, East Maitland, and Bella Vista, Newcastle
As a group, or as two groups (bride’s side, groom’s side). All the names read out, group walks in, repeat.

KKR2014: It’s not necessary to “introduce” the wedding party.

Announce the names of the bridal party as they walk in. Repeat for the groom’s party.

I feel it would be like stupid to do it in a line up. I want them to feel important becasue majoirty of the guests will not be at the ceremony.

KKR2014: It doesn’t have to be a lineup. They can enter in groups.

KKR2014: pair up some of the girls together and some of the guys together for intros. I’ve seen funny ones with guys giving each other piggy backs in or girls doing a little choreographed move. I guess that doesn’t work as well if it’s a more traditional setting but it breaks things up.

Exactly what I was going to say! hehe
Also agreed. If it’s going to be weird/awkward, don’t formally introduce them. It’ll say who they are on your website/program. No need to futher explain.
We’re not even doing an entrance to our reception. Which sucks, but that’s just how it’s going to work out. People will still be able to find me, I’ll be in the big white dress! LOL

Just don’t introduce them. To be honest, the “introduction” of the wedding party is so awkward and outdated to me. Just have yourself and your husband introduced.

KKR2014: we didn’t introduce the wedding party at all, just us.

I’m from the UK we don’t do the whole introducing the grooms men and bridal party. The grooms men stand up with the groom and the bride goes before the bridesmaids.
