What do you mean? Like at the wedding? We’re doing a special entrance but no “and this is the best man so and so!” I have been to weddings with big fancy introductions, they were black tie weddings thought… mine is semiformal.

We didn’t do an announcement of our bridal party.  We didn’t want to do an announcement of ourselves either, so when we walked out to do our first dance, the DJ just said “and now, mike and mandy will have their first dance” just to get everyone’s attention.  I always thought it was a little cheesy and never really wanted to do it!

Our entire wedding party, including parents, were announced at the reception.

I’m struggling with the same thing.  We don’t have a DJ or dancing and our reception is at an old mansion so people will be all over the place.  I don’t really want to be announced.  We have two attendants a piece and only invited family and close friends – people know who we are!  I’m not a big fan of “all eyes on me” moments either and neither is Fiance (who has already started for the last two days with “I’m getting so nervous!  I don’t want everyone looking at me!”).

Yes, everyone that is part of our processional will be announced at the reception. This will include my aunt and uncle, both of our grandmothers, both sets of parents, our ushers & ring bearer (my younger cousins), the bridal party & then obviously us.

@Ms.Teddy:I think if you aren’t having programs you should for sure.  People like to know who is who in your bridal party.

We didn’t, because the layout was awkward, and we wanted dinner to be on the shorter side, and the dancing part to be longer. Announcing would have added to the dinner time.. we even cut the cake after being announced to save time!

We didn’t announce the bridal party and I’m glad we didn’t, I personally always find them a teensy bit contrived but that’s just me 🙂

I hate it when the entire bridal party is annouced, especially when it’s a bio of each person. Either I know these people, and therefore don’t need the introduction, or I don’t and therefore don’t want to know their live story since I will never see them again.

We’re doing our grand entrance, but only the bride and groom will be announced, and we’ll give first names of our party in an under one minute at the beginning.

we are announcing everyone one by one right after the parents and before we make our entrance.  They are going to stand and surround the dance floor for our first dance.  They are our closest friends, the closest thing to a sibling that I could ever have (im an only child) and it means everything to me to have them be apart of everything that night.
