    I would get annouced when entering into the ballroom. The reason being is that not all the guests are there at the beginning of cocktail hour. Also, you said that the DJ won’t have his mic to announce you guys.

    I don’t think it will be cheesy at all because every bride and groom gets their grand entrance into the ballroom.

    I am in pretty much the same situation.  Our ceremony and reception are in the same location and we are also doing pictures ahead of time.  We will be with the guests during the cocktail hour also.  I have thought about this, and I just think it’s easiest to do the introductions in the ballroom.  I don’t think anyone will really think twice about it.  Yes, you will be mingling with your guests beforehand but you still deserve a proper introduction by using your DJ and having a grand entrance!

    I’m definitely gonig to my cocktail hour, but I will be introduced like “And now please welcome MR and MRS ______!!!” for the reception. I think I might have some sort of introduction in the cocktail hour so people wont be surprised to see up or mob us, but it wont be the big introduction.

    I still say get announce in the ballroom.  I’ve been to plenty of weddings where the bride and groom mingle during the cocktail hour then have the grand entrance at the reception.
