I'm looking for opinions on what I should do about my Grand Entrance. My wedding is this Saturday (crazy!) and i'm just now realizing that I may have a slight issue with my Grand Entrance.
The Grand Entrance will be to an old school Dean Martin song. Per the DJ's advice the wedding party will all be walking out to an instrumental version of the song and my fiance and I will be walking out to the same song but with the lyrics included. The problem is the song is about 2 minutes long and my DJ said that he doesn't like to announce over the lyrics. This means that the guests will be listening to the song for about 2 minutes until we're announced. To make things more complicated, my FH and I paid for dance lessons where we worked on a little dance number that takes about 15 seconds to complete which goes at the end of the song.
So is it okay for the wedding party to all be announced and then take a 2 minute break while the guests just listen to the song and wait for our grand entrance? Will that seem weird?
With the wedding so close and no time to rehearse in the facility with the DJ i'm at a loss other than to skip the little number we practiced from the ballroom teacher and I really rather not do that or just have the guests listen for two minutes until we're announced.
