{Volpes Tie The Knot} Reception Entrance

Reception Entrance

YAY for another Wedding Wednesday! I am getting so excited of how many new wedding photos I can gush over every week from those that are just joining us. Keep them coming!

After the cocktail hour and couple photos, it was time to really get the party started! The reception entrance was something I debated, because I originally planned on just taking part in the end of cocktail hour and yard games. If we would have done it this way, our “announcement” as Mr & Mrs would have been right before our first dance. Dave wanted everyone to be introduced though, so that is what we did!

Having our dance floor outside of the tent was one of my #1 things. I wanted this so bad, and even as the weather threatened to ruin those dreams, I still went along with it. I knew our family and friends, and I had a feeling that they wouldn’t mind dancing in a little rain….more on the “little rain” that turned into a tornado later. So, we have our entrances announced across the outdoor dance floor.

Our friends, let me tell you. They can bust a move, so I knew I wanted a song to bring them out. I also wanted to have a fun song when we were announced, and it wasn’t a hard decision once I started thinking about it. The bridal party danced across the floor to Bring Em Out and then we came out to Party in the USA (which is where I got our traveling hashtag from #VolpesInTheUSA) I have been a Miley Cyrus fan for.ev.er., girl has gone crazy now, but I am really hoping Liam can bring her back in. Also, bring back the long brown Hannah Montana hair #hairgoals

Now for the photos!

    These pictures are so adorable. I look looking at them each week!
    We didn’t actually do a reception entrance, which I’m oddly okay with. My hubby and super introverted, especially around people he doesn’t know very well, so a fun and goofy entrance would have made him uncomfortable, I’m sure.

      Thank you!!
      That totally makes sense for the two of you! You still have some ADORABLE photos otherwise!

        Thank you so much, Macy! I really appreciate that!

    Funny, my bridal party walked out to bring em out too! Cameron and I came out to Marry You by Bruno Mars.

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      LOVE it!! It was a good song to get them dancing. I love Marry You as well! One of my best friends got married a few weeks before us and had Marry You as her song, so we couldn’t steal it 😉

    OMG OMG I loooove these–GREAT songs. I can’t wait to share what us and our party came out to–I have that planned as a post, just like you. Chuck picked the bridal party song and it perfectly explains why he’s my husband haha. These pictures made me laugh and are so awesome-you can feel the excitement! I also love that you weren’t afraid of getting wet dancing–your wedding day is meant to be what you want, so glad you followed your heart! I love Wedding Wednesday!

      Thank you!! I can’t wait to read about yours! Dave picked the bridal party song too! I wish we could go back to this so much, it was great having our friends so into everything. I’ll talk about the rain and stuff more later, but I really am still so happy we made the decision to stick with the outdoor dance floor. It makes my heart happy to see these photos of it :)

    These are too funny! I wish we had done an entrance – if only to have these pictures of everyone walking in! Looks like you made a great choice :)

      I was so proud of our bridal parties dance moves. I don’t remember paying attention during the wedding, so I’m happy to have these great photos 😉

    The entrance photos are great!! So funny! We almost had our wedding party come out to Bring Em Out too but opted for Get the Party Started by Pink!

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      LOVE Get The Party Started!! That is such a good song to have the bridal party come out to!

    I love that your dance floor was outside! We were going to do that too when our date was originally in spring. I don’t even remember our entrance song.. wow that’s bad.

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      Thank you! I am really glad we opted to keep it outside. Hahah it shows that I am probably too obsessed with wedding things

    SO STINKING CUTE! I CANT.

      Thank you!! I wish so much I could go back to it.

    Our entrance song will be “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit I don’t think our bridal party entrance will be as fun as yours since the bridesmaids and groomsmen don’t know each other well, but I like the idea that there’s “no place our guests would rather be”.

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      Aww I love that idea!! What a perfect song :)

    It really isn’t a party without Party In The USA! We played that at our wedding and everyone was on the dance floor shaking their booties! I love that your bridal party danced into the reception too! And I’m hoping that Liam can bring Miley back or at least make her shave her arm pits!

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      We had them play it again at the reception, it’s such a feel good, dancing song! Oh me too! I loved her so much, but I just can’t handle the crazy.

    These pictures are great! Everyone looks like they are having a lot fun doing their entrance dances, haha. You picked some good songs too!

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      Thank you! I love looking back at these photos.

    The Allison and Chris pictures are HILARIOUS!!!! So perfect.

    • http://totravelandbeyond.com/ Macy Volpe

      Right! They are too much!

  • Megan

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…WHY DIDN’T I KNOW YOU BEFORE YOU GOT MARRIED! Girl your bridal party looks like a blast and I love how pumped they all were to get out there. Oh well, we will have to cut up a rug together at your bday blate 😉

    Ahhh Bring ‘Em Out is obviously an awesome intro song, and Party in the USA is seriously one of my favorites of all time! I made sure they played it at our reception and I freaked when it came on! Haha!
