“One wedding I attended was memorable because the groom sang while the bride was walking down the aisle.”
If you are looking for wedding ceremony ideas, especially when it comes to walking down the aisle, here are a few suggestions that you may want to consider. However, you should first make sure that it’s allowed, depending on the type of wedding you are planning.
- Dance Down the Aisle – Yes, the name says it all. Instead of formally walking down the aisle, some couples dance their way to the altar – together with the wedding party just like the JK wedding entrance. However, this may not be acceptable in some churches for some priests or the officiating officer, so make sure you are given the green-light before attempting to have this type of processional.
- Serenade Me. One wedding I attended was memorable because the groom sang while the bride was walking down the aisle. If your groom has great talent for singing or even playing the saxophone, then you can actually make your wedding procession a sort of ‘serenade’.
Order of Wedding Processional – If the unique wedding ceremony suggestions above are not feasible for you and your wedding entourage, then you can also choose your wedding processional order to walk down the aisle. For some, the gentlemen walk down the aisle first, wait for the ladies and meet each one of them halfway and walk with them onwards. In some cases, the gentlemen use one aisle and the ladies the other, meeting at the altar. For some, especially for weddings held outdoors, the gentlemen in the wedding party walk in together first then they wait for the bridal processional to walk in one by one, or the bride and groom walk in together.
