10 Game-Changing Wedding Entry Ideas
Let’s start with the beautiful brides.
1. Pretty on a palanquin
It’s common for a groom to make a kingly wedding entry on a chariot, but it’s time to make your queen-bee entry on a palanquin. Usually, the brothers of the bride hold the canopy of flowers as she walks in, but you could make your brothers work a little harder by carrying you on a palanquin decorated with flowers. It’s traditional, elegant and such a royal wedding entry.
2. Doli Saja Ke Rakhna
Let’s go back to traditions and make a trendy wedding entry? In olden times, the bride was always carried on a Doli, usually across villages, to veil her from the public eye. The modern day bride can twist this tradition and make an elegant entry on a Doli, with all eyes on her. It looks beautiful and breathtaking!
3. Darling Daughter
For your wedding entry, ditch the whole bride squad and walk in with those who matter the most - your parents. It’s common for a Christian bride to walk in with her father, but no matter what community or religion you are from, entering your wedding with your parents by your side has got to be a special moment that you’ll always look back on and cherish.
4. Special announcements
2018 was all about chalkboard and printed signs, be it the décor or the wedding entry. Leading the wedding entry, with kids or the bride squad carrying signs like 'here comes the bride', or 'just wait till you see her' are great ways to announce the bride’s entry.
5. The Solo Stunner
Now that’s a wedding entry that speaks of confidence and panache. Make a solo entry, and be the centre of attention. You could have a line of your bridesmaids marking the path you walk, showering flowers or holding firecracker sticks. This is a really unique wedding entry style that definitely made heads turn in 2018.
6. Not Without My Pooch!
With so many couples choosing pet-friendly weddings to include their furballs in the celebrations, it’s not surprising that the wedding entry saw the pets posing too. Walk in with your pet, dressed for the occasion and you are soon to catch everyone’s attention. After all, isn’t the wedding entry all about entering with those who mean the world to you?
7. Vintage Feels
