You can do it any way you want, there is no set way.  If you aren’t a jumping up and down cheesy person then don’t do it.  Our coordinator just announced us by our names and then people chose to do a quick clap.  There was no song, no dancing, none of that and our bridal party were already in their seats with everyone else. 

This wasn’t even our real entrance, after photos we just joined cocktail hour and chatted with our guests.  We didn’t pick a song so we weren’t planning on doing a big formal entrance but the man running our day advised us it was a good time for us to have alone time while everyone was being seated so he went and got us a drink and we stayed in the previous room while that was going on and then he just announced us as we walked in.

We were announced when we walked in and that was it. No family, no bridal party, no antics, no special song, nada. We did our first dance later.

Just don’t do it! My H and I did all our photos before the ceremony, so our Bridal Party headed straight to cocktail hour with the rest of the guests. We hung back in this house by the ceremony site to have a few minutes alone and then walked to the cocktail hour site (we did stop at the hotel’s pool bar for a shot lol). People did notice us coming in and starting clapping and cheering, but that was it. No announcements for anyone, and I LOVED it! We enjoyed the rest of the cocktail hour and then walked with everyone else to the reception.

I didn’t have a wedding party so I can’t speak to that, but we just walked in. I felt like we didn’t need to be announced into the reception as we were already announced at the end of the ceremony and it just seemed redundant to be introduced as Mr. and Mrs. twice.

We just took our photos and went to cocktail hour when we were done. No one missed the lack of a second announcement at all.
