If you don’t really care about a grand entrance, just skip it. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in one place. After we were done photos, we just walked in unannounced and joined the last part of cocktail hour. Honestly, by that point all my husband wanted some food so I don’t think he would have been too happy to wait to be announced before being able to get to the appies.

I would just do the announced entrance during cocktail hour since that will actually be your entrance.
