No bridal party entrance - outdoor ceremony

Mariah, on June 21, 2021 at 8:01 AM Posted in Wedding Ceremony 0 4

Setting the scene: very long driveway with house at the end. I will be getting ready in the house, the ceremony will be held closer to the beginning of the driveway in a field.

We decided to not have a bridal party for several reasons however now that it is getting closer to our big day, I am wondering how my entrance will look. Both My mom and dad will walk me down the aisle. It’s an outside wedding in a field and the walk from the house where I will be getting ready to the ceremony location takes about 3 minutes…I was thinking I would just have one song play and it would take me the 3 minutes to walk there. Is that weird?? For everyone to be watching me walk from far away for approximately 3 minutes? Or would you suggest maybe driving a little closer to not have so long of a walk?
Also wondering what other people did for their entrance with no bridal party? Any suggestions?

    I would personally suggest driving a little closer to not have a so long of a walk. But only because that's what I would do lol. I would have someone drive up and open the car door for me and start that as the entrance. Maybe to make the walk only 1-1 1/2 minutes.

    I would see if you could drive a bit closer then walk. That seems like a very long walk.

    I think it’s fine to wall that far, but I’d have background music until I got to where the aisle begins, and then change to your aisle walking song. The song change is often the cue for everyone to stand, and you don’t want all your guests to have to stand and wait for that whole walk.

    I also had a long walk. Technically I was behind or to the side of the guests but they could see us arriving if they looked over. Still, we didn’t start the aisle-walking formalities until we were right up behind the guests

    That's such a great suggestion Mcskipper!! It will only feel like a long walk if everyone is standing, watching, and waiting with the processional music!

    Either drive a little closer to start walking or just wait until you're "in place" for your processional music to start! 🎵
