We are just flat out not doing it. Our wedding is also all in one place (ceremony, cocktails, reception), so after the pictures our bridal party is just going to join the rest of our guests. We are going to announce myself and the groom though, just because I feel like it would be weird to just wander in and take our seats.

We’re not doing announcements either- we’re having a fairly small wedding so instead we’re going to have the bridal party take their seats and start the evening off by someone giving a toast.

I don’t want any announcements either.  Ours will be an intimate affair, so everybody will know everybody.  No need for it.

When toasts are made, I’m sure we’ll personally thank each of member of the bridal party also.  Much more intimate and personal that way.

This is actually a good idea, I was planning on it but now I think I will just do introduce the parents and the groom and I. Never thought of it!

I don’t think we will announce the bridal party either.  I’ve always thought it was kind of awkward.  We will announce the groom and I, but the whole bridal party should already be there, seated when we come in 🙂

Our DJ suggested this idea b/c my fiance is nervous about the whole "being announced" part.  The DJ said that he would talk to the people closest to the door where you’d enter, and tell them to start clapping when they saw you come into the room.  It has to be enough people, obviously.  As other guests hear the clapping and see you coming in, they would also start clapping (theoretically).  Then you can just take your seat from there.  I thought it was a good idea.  Just sharing!

grey56 — That’s a great idea!  I think we’ll probably be doing something like this just because we aren’t taking any pictures between the ceremony and the reception, it’s not like all of our guests will be sitting around waiting for us.
