How to Make a Memorable Wedding Entrance

As we said, this is an amazing moment to capture on camera or video so you’ll want to get the shot prepped.

  • First, decide the order you want to enter. Some people choose to have the bridal party go first leading up the couple, others go first as newlyweds and have the bridal party follow them. You may choose not to have the bridal party at all, and savour it as a special moment just for the two of you.
  • Have your DJ/master of ceremonies/bridal party gather the guests by the entrance, creating a gangway for you to walk down.
  • Get the DJ to play your entrance song and introduce you as “the new Mr and Mrs…” or “the happy couple” to get the crowd clapping wildly.
  • If you’re catching this on video, having guests with streamer or party poppers to pop as you come in can look fantastic. You’ve already down your confetti shot so skip this step if you don’t want too many similar looking photos.
  • Walk in hand and hand and raise your hands as the crowd go wild!
