We got married in a church, and the church caretaker opened the door for us. Basically, he started and stopped the clocks, the music started at the front, and then he opened the door for us. We had a 4-year-old flower girl walking in front of us, so it would have been very awkward if we had to open them ourselves… If I were you I would check with the chapel/the person that performs the ceremony.

Our wedding coordinator opened out venue door for us (not a chapel).  I’m sure you could ask someone at the church or an usher to handle the door opening!

I had two friends (who were our ushers) open the doors for us. I’ve attended weddings where they left the door propped open and the bride just stepped into view. That would be an easy solution 🙂

All the weddings I’ve been to it was the ushers.

That’s such a good question! I will probably be walking in by myself too so I’m glad I was able to read up on other people’s advice.

MrsMariposa:  I’m getting married in a small rural chapel as well. My 10 year old nephew and his father (my BIL) will be greeting guests as they enter the chapel and will handle door opening and closings for the ceremony. BIL is also our MC so it works well for him to be out greeting guests.

I was wondering the same thing.  I am getting one of the ushers to open the doors for the bridal party.
