The Grand Entrance
This is a great way for the special people in your life to get to show how they appreciate you. Be sure the disc jockey has your name as you want it announced and has checked pronunciation. You may want the wedding party or even family members to have their moment in the spotlight as well. Traditionally wedding party members will enter in reverse order from the ceremony with the best man and maid/matron of honor being the last to enter before the bride and groom. If you would like parents announced, they should go first--they are typically older than the wedding party members and should take priority. Make sure your wedding DJ has the all the names prior to the day of the event, in order, with names that are at all tricky or difficult spelled phonetically. The disc jockey should check pronunciation again as everyone is lining up to prevent mistakes. The most experienced wedding DJ will tell you this is one of the most challenging parts of the reception. When done properly the introduction can infuse the room with energy early on and get people excited for the fun that is to come!
