The wedding wow factor: Top ways to make an entrance at your wedding


Every bride needs to make a grand entrance at her wedding, after all it’s only one of the biggest days of a bride’s life. From arriving at the venue in a horse and carriage, to driving to your wedding on a scooter. If you’re tying the knot sometime soon, take a look at the following top ways to make an unforgettable entrance at your wedding.

Organise some eye-catching transportation

There’s nothing quite like travelling to your wedding venue in memorable transportation to turn heads and ensure you make a glamorous entrance on your big day. There’s plenty of ways to create the wow factor at your wedding by arriving at the venue in some striking form of transport.

Asides pulling up like an A-list celebrity in a limousine, why not opt for a super sleek Rolls-Royce, or, for brides yearning to be treated like royalty on a fairy tale wedding, make your grand entrance in a horse and carriage?

Or for a real thrill, why not make your grand entrance in a sports car, such as a Lamborghini or a Porsche? If it’s a nice day, have the hood down on the sports car and give passer-by’s a wave as you go by.

Antique vehicles, like a VW Beetle, would also make an effective way for the bride and her entourage to show up at the venue. As would driving up in a real hippie vehicle, such as a VW campervan, to make an eye-catching statement at a wedding centred of bohemia individualism.

Remember, wedding transportation doesn’t need to be confined to four wheels. For adrenalin-loving couples and those with a passion for motorcycles and bikes, showing up to your big day on a Vespa, a tandem bike or, if the wedding is taking place near water, turning up on a boat, would make an unforgettable entrance.

One super funky and increasingly trendy way to pull up at the venue on your big day is by pedicab. A rickshaw type of vehicle, pedicabs are ideal for couples yearning for a metropolitan carriage that has the classic appeal of a horse and carriage but with a more modern feel.

Of course, it’s not just your choice of transport that can give your wedding entrance that extra wow factor.

A rose petal entrance

How would you feel to be greeted by hundreds, if not thousands, of rose petals when you arrive at the wedding ceremony venue? Having your guests adorn you in petals as you arrive at your wedding, would definitely ensure you make a creative and memorable entrance. The bride and groom draped in beautiful rose petals would also provide a fabulous scene for some stunning wedding photographs.

Let there be fireworks

Ensure you wedding goes off with a bang by having fireworks go off when the bride and groom make their arrival. Or if fireworks are a little too dramatic, you could always opt for some speciality lighting, accompanied with some theatrical music that means something to yourself and the groom.

Think about the venue

Of course, to make the grand entrance to your wedding you’ve always dreamt of, you need to have the right backdrop to optimise the splendour of the entrance.

For example, for couples getting married in Leeds, Weetwood Hall Estate’s extensive and stunning gardens would make the perfect backdrop for couples making a grand entrance on horse and carriage, a vintage Vespa, or to a shrine of rose petals, or whatever lavishly memorable entrance takes their fancy.
