Hi Bees! I am having my wedding ceremony outside at a local forest preserve in Chicago. The forest preserve is a pretty open field. I have been trying to find ways to make my entrance to walking down the aisle without anyone seeing me. ( this may be difficult because of the large open space of the forest preserve)
I was thinking about getting old vintage looking doors from maybe a garage sale or somwhere and using those. My FI dad is a pretty good handy man and im sure he would be able to help us build up a little thing but I just have no idea what to use and I dont want to spend a ton of money on old vintage doors that i will most likley never use again. I think thats why I liked the concept of curtains as an entry way. I saw a few photos that I really liked but I still have no idea.
Do you guys have any ideas for me??? 🙂

@SLuce021: How are you and your guests arriving to your ceremony site? I assume you would be arriving separately from everyone else right?
I was initially considering having a ceremony in the woods in the middle of no where and liked the idea of everyone seeing me coming from afar. I had also seen ideas where you could have your groom turn around during the ceremony and the officiant would let him know when he could turn around to see you coming down the aisle. I think the vintage doors are a fabulous idea and I’ve seen this idea used a lot in circumstances like yours.

I had an outdoor ceremoy and was really nervous about the entrance. I couldn’t figure out how I would enter without people seeing me the entire time. My first idea was to hang sheets from the trees and then my photographer offered to let me use her backdrop stand. We were going to use that with sheets attached but my husband told me not to worry about it and to just trust him.
The morning of the wedding he had a limo pick us up and we sat in there until it was time to get out.
