Your bridal entrance sets the tone for one of the most memorable moments of your wedding day. Planning this grand entrance involves more than just picking a song. Here are five tips to ensure your walk down the aisle is nothing short of epic.

Decide on Your Bridal Entrance Lineup

Consider who will accompany you down the aisle. Will it be just bridesmaids and flower girls/page boys, or are groomsmen part of the procession too? The tradition of groomsmen walking down the aisle is more common in America, whereas in the UK it’s traditionally the bridesmaids, but it’s up to you to decide what feels right for your wedding.

Think About the Formation

Determine the order of the bridal entrance. Will you go first or last and do you want someone to accompany you down the aisle? Should the younger members of the bridal party go first, and will they walk down on their own or with an older member? Do you want your bridesmaids to walk in pairs or individually? Whether you choose to walk down with a family member, friend, or on your own, your bridal entrance is an opportunity to break free from traditional norms if you wish! 

Include a Live Musician

Consider having a live musician for your bridal entrance. Live music adds a personal touch and can be tailored to the length of your entrance. Avoid the uncertainties of pre-recorded tracks, and enjoy the flexibility a live musician offers. This also gives you the opportunity to choose a song you love, even if it’s rock or alternative, and have it played in a romantic style.

Choose Two Pieces of Music for your bridal entrance

Opt for two distinct pieces of music—one for your bridal party and one for yourself. This adds a unique touch to your entrance, making the moment extra special. And if you decide to have one piece of music, plan your entrance to coincide with a key change or a powerful moment in the music.
