Hawily Ever After: Grand Entrances

With our DOC/DJ, Liz, we not only picked music, but also wrote fun scripts for the grand entrances. I think it really added something extra and fun.

Momma and Daddy Hawk were introduced as “Disco Inferno” began to play…

…followed by the Hawk-in-laws’ entrance to “Get Ready.”

Once the parents were introduced, the fun with the bridal party began. Sissy Hawk was up first.

“At 12 years old, Sissy Hawk has devoted herself to swimming and she loves listening to music, just not Justin Bieber!”

“Please welcome Mrs. Hawk’s little sister, Sissy Hawk!”

“GM J and Mr. Hawk have been friends since college. They were fraternity brothers in Delta Chi, and bonded over their love of sports. And even though he keeps his own hair very short, he makes his living selling hair products.”

“A recent newlywed himself, give it up for GM J!”

“Mrs. Hawk and BM R have been friends since college, where they bonded over going dancing and going shopping! Rachael is obsessed with her dog, Chloe—AKA “stinky face.” The years may have gone by, but R is still the only person who can outlast Mrs. Hawk at the mall! Guess it’s a good thing she’s an accountant!”

“Mr. Hawk and GM R met in college and were fraternity brothers in Delta Chi! They bonded over college parties, flag football and watching sports! Rich is currently in law school and has high political aspirations! Try as he might, he just can’t get Aaron to debate politics with him! Please welcome GM R!”

GM R and Mr. Hawk met in high school and have been buddies ever since. BM K and Mrs. Hawk bonded over their love of reading and Dave Matthews! R is a huge Hokie football fan. K will sit and watch the games with him. R is also big Phillies fan! K will sit and watch those games with him too! They are a great couple and have been together forever. They just had a little girl seven months ago, and little M is the light of their sleep deprived lives. K and R!

“Mrs. Hawk and BM T have been friends since middle school. They were so close, they practically lived at each others’ houses. They were on the same dance team in high school and somehow survived being chased by all the boys. They were also obsessed with Austin Powers! While each in their own bedrooms they would start the movie together and recite the lines to each other over the phone! T!”

“The Best Man, J, is Mr. Hawk’s younger brother who loves to party. In fact, he is a very accomplished bar hopper! However, he is under the mistaken belief that he is the better looking brother. He’s loyal, he’s brutally honest, and he is someone you can always count in a pinch! Show your love for mister “I’m the life of the Party,” Best Man, J!”

“A is Mrs. Hawk’s best friend and Maid of Honor. They were sorority sisters in Alpha Chi Omega, they had the same major, Economics, and they were roommates until Mrs. Hawk ditched her to go live with Mr. Hawk! A loves dogs and spends countless hours making sure that shelter dogs find loving homes. And finally, she loves football and watching the football players! Maid of Honor: A!”

Liz called out the wedding party to dance out the rest of the song, but Mr. Hawk was being a bit reluctant.

With a little encouragement yanking from me…

…plus a hand from GM J, we got him out there for a moment or two.

    I love fun entrances! Ours was pretty bland, but we didn’t want to deal with the logistics.
