Do you want to arrive by a horse drawn carriage, a motorcycle, an elephant, a convertible or just walk into your favorite song? What is your style?
Your entrance really makes an impression at the start of your wedding celebration. We have seen brides and grooms enter by motorcycle and then became a place for photographs later. The motorcycle was even custom painted and detailed with the bridal party colors
Another amazing entrance more recently was at the Ravenswood event center where two grooms entered by their convertible that was pristine after a 9 hour detailing. The guests were in awe and as the convertible cruised in slowly all you could hear was a soft gasp in amazement of what just happened. Then gentlemen got out and walked down the aisle to the officiant. Then the party started after the wedding ceremony. After the ceremony the convertible was used as a photo booth with props and all for everyone to feel like they were taking a Sunday driver in the convertible.
Sometimes over the top entrances are a part of a culture’s tradition such as the Baraat, which is a bridegroom’s wedding procession in North India and Pakistan. In North Indian communities, it is customary for the bridegroom to travel to the wedding venue on a mare.
According to Wikipedia, they can ever be a party before the party with its own band, dancers, and budget. The groom and his horse. The groom usually carries a sword. This part of the party is more for the groom’s family than the bride’s family. ( Wikipedia)
Some entrances are traditional, some are cultural and some are just personalized and unique. The most important thing is to make it your own and have fun with it!
