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.


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!

I look forward to our next meeting!
