I Dream of Genies: Bruno Mars and the Entrance

So, when it came to the “grand entrance” of the bridal party, I didn’t give anyone much direction. My main objective was to get people seated and eating. So I chose possibly one of the cheesiest, but shortest songs ever, Bruno Mars’ “Marry You,” and let the kids roll with it. It was quick and fun.

First came our parents:



After that, we had our best girls and guys come in.


BM KK and GM D


BM Pow and GM A


BM Sis and GM Bro A

But the standard walk in and smile really wasn’t enough for MOH Wino and BM B. They had some fun with their entrance, and jazzed up their attire with props from the photo booth.


Keepin’ it classy.

What a tough act to follow! We were a little boring in our entrance, although, I did awkwardly wave my arms a couple of times and Mr. G kept a firm grip on my arm and just kept smiling, because he wasn’t going to dance. To be honest, I just wanted to sit down and stop having attention focused on me for a little while. That’s probably why I just wanted to dance it all away.



After taking a circuitous route to our seats, and awkwardly facing the crowd from the dance floor, we had my uncle give the blessing for the food.


Now we could eat! Or so I thought.

Did you have, or are you planning to have, a choreographed dance entrance? Or at least dance your way in? Or did you just move quickly into dinner as we did?

    Yeah, I never thought about it. But now I’m worried I’ll be walking in all boring after our crazy party has fun running in.

    We were pretty boring with our entrance too, they always makes me uncomfortable since everyone is just staring expecting to be entertained.

    Um you guys were way more exciting than us. We just walked down the stairs and half the reception on the other side of the venue couldn’t see us entering… and none of the bridal party danced at all. 😛

    Hey, I love that song, I think it’s a good choice 🙂
    I had no role in planning our Grand Entrance – it was all Mr. W’s scheming. He chose the Jay-Z/Kanye song “N**** In Paris” and the whole bridal party did an organized dance. I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants.
