Modern Wedding Ceremony 101

Welcome to the Wedding Reception Planning series. This video series we’ll discuss the various parts of a typical American wedding reception. Furthermore, I strive to provide you the information you need to help plan the wedding reception of your dreams.

Traditions

There are a lot of great traditions in American weddings that you can choose to celebrate. What I love to share with couples is that they can honor those traditions. Or modify an existing tradition. But best of all they can start their own family tradition.

Wedding Introductions

In this article we will be talking about the traditional wedding introduction. You can be introduced into the reception several different ways. Often depending on the type of reception you have chosen. Let us look at some common ways you can be introduced at your wedding reception.

Short Wedding Intro

You may want to introduce just the two of you! “Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen, on behalf of our bride and groom we thank you for joining us for this joyous occasion. I ask you all to please rise. (pause) It gives me great pleasure to introduce Mr. and Mrs. Newly Wed!
 

Wedding Introduction of Bride and Groom
Triumphant Bride & Groom!
 

There are a few reasons why you would choose to introduce only the bride and groom. A small, intimate wedding reception. You may have a very small bridal party. Also, an odd number of wedding party participants. Consequently, short wedding intros are also often done at casual, destination and second weddings.

Bridal Party Intro

Your next option is to introduce the Bridal Party! In this scenario you, the bride and groom are introduced after the members of the formal bridal party. The bridal party intro often begins with introducing the flower girl and the ring bearer if you have them. Also includes the brides’ attendants, often called bridesmaids, and ushers also called groomsmen.

Family Intro

Wedding introductions done at formal wedding receptions include the Parents. The parents of the bride, traditionally the hosts of the wedding reception are introduced into the room first.
Today many receptions get paid for by many people. 
Parents, couples themselves and even crowd funding websites, like GoFundMe. In this case, your Emcee or wedding DJ will introduce the hosts of the reception into the room first.

Notable Guest Intro

Quite often you will have notable guests to include in your wedding introductions. Notable guests include your grandparents and anyone that participated in the wedding ceremony. Notable guests may be introduced into the room before your parents, or they may also be recognized at their table.
There you have some of the most common introductions at a typical American wedding reception.

Who are you going to introduce?

Find out in the next article in our series specifically who to introduce and when!
Thank for your time! If you have any questions or comments please let us know.
I look forward to our next meeting!

Rock songs for the wedding ceremony interlude or unity ceremony from the Wedding Ceremony Music Series on Jacky B’s Wedding DJ Blog covers rock songs through the years. You will find great rock songs from the sixties, eighties and today. There are many ways to perform a unity ceremony. From lighting a candle to mixing your favorite cocktail! Express yourself in your own way. Here are some great rock songs for the wedding ceremony interlude or unity ceremony.

And I am, over-whelmed, by you

Am, overcome with joy

You’ve taken me higher, and shown me what love can do

Where would I go. or be, without you

Overwhelmed Tim McMorris

Written specifically for the wedding unity ceremony, the lyrics work perfectly for the sand mixing ceremony.

Let the sand pour through our hands

Let us never be apart

The joining of two separate lands.

The joining of two hearts.

Sand Ceremony Song Spencer Durham

Often used as a first dance song at receptions

You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne

Oh, because
You are the best thing
(you’re the best thing)
You are the best thing
(you’re the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing
(you’re the best thing, oh)
Ever happened to me

You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you!

Use Somebody Kings of Leon

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper I love you
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

Dream a Little Dream The Mamas & the Papas

I believe there is nothing stronger than our love
I believe there is nothing stronger than our love
When I’m with you Baby
All my worries disappear

(I Believe) There’s Nothing Stronger Than Our Love Paul Anka

So close, no matter how far

Couldn’t be much more from the heart

Forever trusting who we are

And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way

Life is ours. We live it our way

All these words I don’t jus say

And nothing else matters

Nothing Else Matters    Metallica

It’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, we’ll look at the stars when we’re together
Well, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together

Better Together   Jack Johnson

Adult Contemporary Songs for the Brides Entrance

Adult Contemporary Songs for the Brides Entrance

Adult Contemporary Songs for the Brides Entrance Songs

Adult contemporary songs for the brides entrance is the music list of the week on Jacky B’s Wedding DJ blog. Finding just the right song for your entrance can be a challenge. Here are some suggestions that may have one time been considered something else, but I consider the following list to be great as adult contemporary songs for the brides entrance.

This song opens with simple notes reminiscent of a wedding march…

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt, suddenly goes away somehow

A Thousand Years      Christina Perri

Look into my eyes,
You will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart,
Search your soul
And when you find me there, you’ll search no more

Everything I Do, I do it For You          Bryan Adams

You’re there by my side
Everywhere
I know that you will not forsake me
I give you my life
Would not think twice
Your love is all I need, believe me

This I Swear    Nick Lachey

I really like the opening notes to this next song. At approximately 20 seconds in length before the vocals you may have time to make your entrance. If not, and you would rather not have any of the vocals, then either use the instrumental version or have your Pro wedding DJ customize a copy for you .

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

Make You Feel My Love        Adele

She may be the face I can’t forget
The trace of pleasure or regret
May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
She may be the song that summer sings
Maybe the chill that autumn brings
Maybe a hundred different things
Within the measure of a day

She      Elvis Costello

A few of the songs on the Adult contemporary songs for the brides entrance list are really great as instrumentals, while other songs the lyrics are the reason to use the song

Jazz Wedding Songs for the Groom's Entrance

Jazz Wedding Songs for the Groom’s Entrance at Your Wedding Ceremony

Jazz Wedding Songs for the Grooms Entrance

Jazz wedding songs for the groom’s entrance at your wedding ceremony is this week’s Wedding Ceremony Music Series list. There are only a few times the spotlight is on the groom. Even at the wedding ceremony it is rare for the groom to have his own song.

I say let’s change it up some. The groom is obviously as important to the occasion as the bride. Use the Jazz wedding songs for the groom’s entrance at your wedding ceremony list to get your creative juices flowing to put the light on the groom and add a little flair to your wedding ceremony.

Jazz Songs for the Grooms Entrance List

The best is yet to come, and babe won’t it be fine
You think you’ve seen the sun, but you ain’t seen it shine

 The Best is Yet to Come               Michael Buble

It had to be you
It had to be you
I wandered around and finally found
The somebody who could make me be true
Could make me be blue or even be glad
Just to be sad just thinking of you

It Had to Be You            Harry Connick Jr

I say, love, I never knew that a touch
Could mean, could mean so much
What a difference
And when we walk hand in hand
I feel, I feel so real

Love Ballard               George Benson

Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

Fly Me to the Moon                  Frank Sinatra

Give me a kiss to build a dream on
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on

A Kiss to Build a Dream On                   Louis Armstrong
