i’ve been in weddings where there was no bridal party entrance.  it’s all about what YOU want to do and what makes YOU happiest/most comfortable.  there are no rules where this is concerned!

I don’t think it’s a big deal to skip it! We probably will skip it, because we have a small bridal party and it just seems unnecessary!

we’re not doing bridal party entrances. fi HATES them.  he thinks they are beyond cheesy and awkward.  i could take em or leave em personally but since he was so passionate in his hatred of them, i obviously nixed it.  i think you should just do what you are comfortable with.

Then don’t!  We aren’t either.  We’re going to arrive sometime during the cocktail hour, mingle, and then at 6:00, my Fiance is going to thank everyone for coming and announce that it’s dinner time.

i think that’s fine to skip the intros, unless you feel like your bridal party may want a few more seconds in the limelight (although instead of being paraded you could just do a quick thank you toast later)! we were actually going to skip the bride/groom intro as well, but it just kinda happened because we were the last ones to walk into the reception room.

We’re not doing this either. We’ll just make our rounds at cocktail hour.

We skipped it too, and no one cared 🙂

We aren’t going to do this at all; not even an intro for us. Our ceremony and reception is at the same place, and 99% of our guests will know each other. Besides having way too much attention drawn to us, we feel it is unnecessary. It would be a wast of time that we are paying to have the venue.

We were going to skip it, and only ended up doing it because we needed the help of the bridal party to set up our first dance (which required some group participation). Otherwise, we would have just let the Bridal Party join the guests during the cocktail hour while we took a few more portraits (and if we’d finished the portraits, we were going to hang out at the cocktail hour, too, and mingle with guests then so we didn’t have to during dinner!).

Not doing it either. My plan is actually to take bridal party pictures before the ceremony, so the ones that aren’t family will head back to the reception first and get things started. When we arrive after taking family photos, the DJ is just going to announce that the happy couple has arrived, and start in playing “I’ll Stop the World.” Our guests will be spread out indoors and outdoors, so we’ll do a quick cruise to wave to everyone (and make sure things look good!), then settle in for a great evening.

I personally don’t like them (mostly because of obnoxious DJs) so I think your guests won’t mind. I never really saw the point to them especially if your attendants are listed in the program – it’s not like they’re not acknowledged.

also not doing any intros, not even one for us. i want it to be just a big party instead of a “look at me!” kind of night.
