Ceremony Progression For A Small Wedding! Any Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

We are having a small DW comrpised of approximately 20 of our closest family and friends.

 

7 of the 20 are in our bridal party.

 

I dont know if we should have them standing beside us or sitting down. Or even walking down the aisle for that matter....

 

I feel like if 7 out of 20 people are standing up/ walking down the aisle -  it is going to make for a very small, sad audience.   :huh:

 

I am also letting them where whatever they want so no one is going to be matching.

 

Any suggestions or prior experience is greatly appreciated!!

Hello and congratulations! Small weddings are so nice, it feels romantic and intimate and special, it's an amazing feeling that's for sure.

 

If you wanted to have your bridal party sit down and be a part of the audience, I think that's a nice idea, and this way the focus will really be on you and your hubby standing at the front! Personally, and this is just my opinion, I would still have the bridal party walk down the aisle. This a way to feature your party, and in a way, introduce that the wedding is starting and you will make your grand entrance soon. Especially if your bridal party is wearing whatever they want, if they aren't matching, you want them to stand out, right? Isn't that the point of a bridal party in the first place? If they are wearing whatever they want, and sit with your guests, you may as well not have a bridal party at all. Personally I think it's nice to feature those you chose to be close to you and stand with you on your day.  :)

@@JennaMarie901 I completely agree with @@jackshayne0123. I would have them walk down and then perhaps reserve the first row for the bridal party to sit in. I was in my friends catholic wedding and since it was a mass ceremony that's exactly what we did, because no one would want to stand for an hour. This is also what we did for my sisters wedding. We walked in and sat down in the "audience" and then walked out after her and her husband walked down the aisle.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
