vgrimes93 :  Are you doing the whole song or just the chorus? Honestly if I were a guest and there was a different song for the bridal party, the bride and groom, and the parents I would just feel awkward and bored.  I would just pick one song that works for everyone to walk in to, and then you and you Fiance can come in towards the end.  You don’t need 3+ songs to just walk into the reception.

I get bored with introductions in general, so multiple songs would be a hard no. It’s just too much. I appreciate it when people put the names and relationships of people in their bridal party in their wedding program, in order. I can see the bridal party at the ceremony, so if I care to acquaint myself with them by name/appearance, I can. I also know who the mother of the bride and groom are already… they were walked in separately and seated. Why introductions at all besides the bride and groom in their new role as husband and wife, quite frankly?

I’d probably “forget” to tell the DJ about Mother-In-Law annoucement. BP annoucements are tedious and boring at best, but adding in all parents? Ugh. Just pick a song (A – one single) and get it over with.

vgrimes93 :  are you having a speech? Acknowledge them there, let them stand and smile and move on. No way does everyone want to sit through tedious introductions tripled from the standard length (I like best when they don’t happen at all because the odds that I care who the people in the bridal party are are about zilch – or I already know them)

vgrimes93 :  I mean a speech from bride/groom, thanking guests for sharing the day, thanking parents for their support in life and the like. It’s the perfect place to acknowledge them and give them a moment to shine without adding another ten minutes to the day.

Honestly? I think you are making this way more difficult than it needs to be. Pick a song for your bridal party entrance, one for you and your husband, and one for the parents collectively. We actually opted for one song for both us and our bridal party, even easier. Is introducing the parents even a thing? I have not heard of this before 

This isn’t something that everyone (your family and friends) needs to give their opinions on. Make the decision and save your sanity! Lol

Pick a song for the parents – they can all walk into the same song. Problem solved.

I’ve never seen parent introductions and would find it awkward and weird. Pick one up beat fun song and have your wedding party and you come into that. Done. Don’t over think a detail literally no one will remember. We thought we were clever doing the instrumental intro to Enter Sandman, and Sandman was my husband’s radio name in college. We thought it was so BA and clever. Literally ONE guest got it and commented on it. Even though all of his radio buddies were there. No one pays attention to this stuff, it’s not worth the drama and stress you are giving it.
