I saw this on 4 weddings. One of the couples just kind of appeared at the altar. I think they just walked around the side. If thats what you want to do, I think you should.

My bff is a really shy person and she was sooooo nervous to walk down the isle. In the end she was really happy she did it, because she got to look at her Fiance as she was walking down. She said it was her favorite part of the day.

My cousin did this. It was her 4th wedding and his second LOL So she felt no need to wear white and walk down the isle and everyone just gathered around…which as a guest I was a little disappointed she didn’t make a big entrance but as a big wedding person that is just my opinon. It worked really well though, she walked up from the side and everything just happened.

As a suggestion though, if this is what you do, make sure something (anything) gets the guest attention because we really didnt know the wedding was happening until the officiant told everyone to stop talking (which is harsh concidering it was the cerimony). Anyways I hope that helps and it willl be amazing! 🙂

I saw read about a couple that had an outside wedding.. showed up in the car together.. mingled with guests before the ceremony & then proceded to just make their way to the “altar” to start..

It was a hit, fit them great, & the guests loved the surprise non-traditional entrance =)

This is what I want to do.  I plan on getting married walking distance from my house, so I want to walk with my friends and family to where the ceremony is taking place (most of the guests will meet there–it’s an outdoor location).  We aren’t having attendents, and are planning on having all of our guests and family arranged around us in a crowd in support.

Our theme for our wedding is community, so we aren’t keeping a lot of the formal elements.  We want what was traditional before things became, in my opinion, more about the wedding than the marriage. 

Good idea on the whole signal the start thing.  Didn’t think about that.  Maybe a bell or some cool sound.   lol a gong!

@AJoy77: This was on 4 weddings just like someone said. I think it’s a great idea! Your wedding is what you want to make it! Who says that there has to be an aisle?!
