The wedding processional refers to the group of people that walk down the aisle to mark the beginning of a wedding ceremony. There is usually a traditional order that people follow, but do not feel like you must be pigeonholed into that. If you are looking for creative processional ideas to put a unique spin on your wedding, you are not alone! Keep reading for tips on how to choose a wedding processional that works for you.
Give Him His Own Time to Shine
In most ceremonies, the groom and groomsmen will enter the area quietly from a side door without much fanfare and then wait for the bride to come down the aisle. The groom rarely gets their own music or much attention. If you want a unique idea for the processional, let the groom get his chance to shine! The groomsmen can still enter quietly from a side door, but let the groom choose a song and walk down the aisle to it so he can have a special entrance as well.
Mix Up The Escort
While the bride is typically escorted down the aisle by her father, you do not have to do it that way. The bride can be escorted by anyone she chooses! Whether that is her father, both parents, a grandparent, brother, or favorite aunt, you as the couple can make that call.
Walk In As A Couple
Another trend that we are seeing more of is the couple walking into the ceremony together. You walk in as a couple, and out as a married couple! That way, you both get to share the spotlight together.
Rock Out To Music
If you want to inject some fun and levity into your wedding ceremony, consider choosing a unique song and dancing down the aisle to it. There are so many great options for songs out there and this lets you have a bit of fun. Not only will it have your guests clapping and laughing, but it will break up some of the tension and nerves that you might be feeling if you were to walk down the aisle to the traditional bridal march song.
