What’s an easy way to set the tone and mood of your wedding?
Make an entrance, of course! Your wedding processional, where the wedding party and the happy couple enter at the beginning of the ceremony, is the official start of your wedding, and is full of drama and anticipation.
Unless you’re having an extremely casual wedding, having everyone just sort of walk in is anti-climactic. (And who wants to start off that day like that?)
Walking to the pace of a slower tempoed song, such as Wagner’s Bridal Chorus (aka Here Comes the Bride), or Canon in D is more solemn and traditional.
Other couples are taking it up still another notch. They’ve got to come in somehow, right? So to get the energy going, and expressing a light-hearted and whimsical tone, they’re dancing up the aisle.
Hundreds of years ago, the wedding ceremony was preceded by dancing to the ceremony locale. This represented the celebration of the joy of life. Through the years the dancing evolved into the modern processional.
Go back to the wedding ceremony roots and dance in.

“Well I know this little chapel on the boulevard we can go”
Love the song (yeah, I’m a Bruno fan). But really LOVE the energy of this processional. You can already feel the joy through the computer screen. Can you imagine how the guests were feeling experiencing this in person?
What do you think of the dancing wedding processional? Would you consider this type of entrance for your wedding ceremony?
Hearts, Joy, Love!
