    @jinx628:  i thought we were supposed to and i will have an extra hard time with this bc the groom’s parents are divorced on bad terms. yikes. i was thinking of having his parents each walk in with a kid if they were announced.

    I’ve seen it at some weddings, and not at others, and I’m not sure it makes a big difference either way.

    Personally I wouldn’t do it, because I don’t like the idea of suggesting the wedding is a marriage or two families, or joining of two families, but more like the two of us getting married. I don’t want to suggest his parents have anything to do with it.

    I’ve never been to a wedding where the parents are announced. Didn’t even cross my mind for our wedding.

    I’ve been to weddings that did announce parents, and others that didn’t. We’re probably not going to announce our parents, but I’m including a rose ceremony for our mothers during the actual wedding ceremony to honor our moms…and our dads are giving speeches, so I think our parents are covered.

    I personally think announcements should be made at the reception venue… the ceremony is all about YOU and YOUR fiance….

    but then again if you want to personalize it like this I say go for it, to make your family feel special and friends to feel in the loop if they don’t know who is who
