    I think it would be weird – I’ve never seen or heard of that before, but if it had happened at my wedding I wouldn’t be mad about it or anything, just would have been caught a little off guard by it I suppose.

    I wouldn’t worry about it. It isn’t like you were being disrespectful or anything. You were just honestly happy to see her.

    Honestly, I would have been kinda upset. I guess because I’ve never seen/heard that before and it’s not what I “think of” when I think of walking down the aisle. All I remember from walking down the aisle was the music and checking out my handsome husband standing up there waiting for me. If people had started to clap, I’m sure it would have bothered me and possibly scared me since I wasn’t expecting it.

    I think I would also be really confused at first, then a bit embarrassed.

    You know… I don’t think it would be so bad. Odd, maybe…unexpected, sure… but not offensive! Unless it was the “slow clap” LOL.

    Honestly, I think I would laugh! It sounds like you were swept up in the moment. If it wasn’t alarmingly loud I don’t think I would care. It’s not like you were doing it maliciously.

    I’ve never heard of that before. Certainly as the couple make their way out of the ceremony but not when the bride appears. I think I would be a little upset and would possibly have a really bad look on my face at the direction of the clapping had I heard that.

    To be honest, I would be incredibly flattered! I still say that one of the most surprising and best moments of our day was when we walked up the stairs and into the tent where our cocktail hour was being held. As we walked up the stairs and people saw us, they all burst into applause and that touched me so much! Just knowing that everyone was there for us and the incredible reaction we got when we came into cocktail hour…it was an amazing feeling!

    Wouldn’t bother me. I think it’s cute and kind of fun.

    I think it should be a new tradition that you clap for the bride! No need to be all solemn and serious at such an exciting moment

    i see it both ways. it’s flattering but also awkward because clapping means you did something well, and I like to think I look this good without working for it. Lol.

    Whats the difference between a clap and a cheer?  Not much, it would not bother me at all.  It would probably startle you if you were not expecting it.  I think the day can get really serious and perhaps its enough to drive someone crazy.  I say go for it!!!  Clap away!!  Thanks for liking my wedding that much.

    @jjilyeah: I don’t think I would be upset but I definitly think that it would be strange. Personally when I walk down the isle I want people to be happy, maybe overjoyed and maybe even full of awe but it would be really awkward for me if they clapped. Goodness I hope that doesn’t happen!!!
