Wedding Recap: Our Entrances

Phew...We are FINALLY up to our reception! Need to catch up on what happened so far? Be sure to check out my Wedding Recaps Page to catch up on everything leading up to the reception!

Now here's where the fun really starts!! Once everyone found their tables and were seated, it was time for our parents, our Bridal Party, and finally US to be introduced! First our parents were introduced to the party!!
Mom and Dad
The In-Laws
Our Bridal party got very creative with their entrances!

Mal and Mike with a sign saying "Congrats Laura! RIP Chris" Har HAR!

James and Smith getting creative with PROPS
Our siblings did a tango, followed by a dip, and then a switch off of the bouquet. I didn't see it at the time, but watching it on the video, it was pretty impressive!

While everyone entered through a side door leading onto the dance floor, our entrance was a bit of a special surprise. Our sweetheart table was actually on a turnstile table. This was something that our venue just added last year and was not a feature when we booked the space 2 years ago. Like with our martini bar, I was worried about this entrance, but was told by many friends to just "own" it and either do it and do it well, or not do it at all. Well, we decided to just own it and live-it-up because when else will we get to have an entrance like this??

Waiting "backstage" in our Bridal Suite for our introduction:

When they announced our names, it slowly started to turn...
 and turn....
 and turn....
and turn...
almost there!!
We're there!!
A quick kiss...

We then walked out onto the dance floor...
High-fived our Bridal party..
We walked up and down the entire dance floor, and then it was time for our first dance!!

What a fun entrance! Sounds like you had a lot of stuff that was very memorable for guests, even if it seemed cheesy at first! Owning it is totally the way to go!

First...I absolutely love your friends...they are hilarious and super fun! I loved the entrance when I was a bridesmaid...BUT

Second..I actually hate the entrances (as a bride)...there is something about fist pumpin' and acting all crazy and partying that makes me feel embarrassed....I plan not to do one...is that normal? hahah Sorry I just vented
