1. Hire a Limo
Let’s face it:
Your wedding day is a cause for celebration.
It’s one of the only days in your life where anything goes! With no reason to hold back, why not hire a wedding limo to drive you to the party?
Limos scream grandeur and luxury. Rocking up to any party in one is a fantastic way to make a statement. You take on celebrity status, and let everybody know you’re ready for a good time!
Whether you arrive in the limo with your new spouse or the entire bridal party, you’ll never forget this particular entrance.
2. Arrive By Helicopter
Okay, so limos are awesome.
But why not go one step further and arrive by helicopter!?
This particular entrance is another one you wouldn’t forget in a hurry. It’s a noisy, outlandish, and downright remarkable way to turn up.
Sure, it’s an expensive source of transport! But, in all honesty, you deserve it! This is your wedding day after all. If all goes to plan you’ll never have another one.
Mark the occasion by spoiling yourself with a chopper.
3. Dance Your Way In
Your wedding day is all about you!
For once, you’re the center of attention- and you don’t need to feel guilty about it.
In fact, you should make the most of the occasion by putting on a show for everyone! With all eyes turned on you and your new spouse, think about dancing your way to the table!
Everybody loves an opportunity to get on their feet and clap their hands.
Your guests will delight in seeing you both wiggle, jiggle and jimmy your way in with a soundtrack playing behind you.
4. Sort Out a Flash Mob
Don’t want to be the only ones dancing?
Well, a flash mob could be more up your street. It would also be an incredible way to start the party!
There’s nothing quite like seeing a giant crowd get involved in a pre-planned dance routine. As you enter the hall or room, the music could change and trigger the routine to commence.
It’ll take some prior preparation. Do it right, though, and this particular entrance will go down in the history books. People will be talking about it for years to come.
5. Play With Shadows
Silhouettes provide a simpler, but no less special, way to enter your reception.
In fact, this particular idea is one of the most romantic on this list.
Set yourself up with what’s called a scrim (a thin sheet, or piece of cloth) at the entrance to the room. Stand behind it and shine a light at it from behind you. All of a sudden, your silhouettes will appear to the people in the room.
From there, the world is your oyster. Use your silhouettes in any manner you wish. You could slow dance, kiss, or act something out.
Whatever you decide to do, the people watching on the other side are sure to love it.
6. Play With the Lights
Go to a concert or theatre production and what do you see?
Amazing lighting displays, right?
Lights of different colors and intensities shine in brilliant displays; shapes and forms are shone onto walls and around the room. Why?
Because lighting is an amazing way to alter the mood in any venue. You can use it to manipulate the mood of any audience.
The same goes for your wedding reception. You could hire a professional lighting company to create an unforgettable display of lights for your special entrance.
7. Drop Things on Your Audience!
And no, we don’t mean heavy things.
…This isn’t an excuse to rid yourself of your in-laws, after all!
Instead, we mean things like confetti, flower petals, balloons, or a combination of the above. Having anything fall from the sky is an amazing way to celebrate an event.
You could set up these ‘drops’ to occur as you enter the room.
It could be a standalone element of your entrance, or the grand finale to something else (like a dance, or flash mob). Whatever the case, it’s a nice, straight-forward and visually attractive way to start the event.
8. Sing Your Way to Glory
Got an enviable voice and love to sing?
Well, you could start your wedding party with a song!
You and your spouse could sing a duet to each other. Alternatively, you could get your bridal party in on the action. Hand a microphone to your bridesmaids and groomsmen and let the comedy roll.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a great voice for this one. In fact, it could be far funnier if you and your new spouse use your happily-average singing voices to proclaim your love for one another!
