Different types of entrance to the church rituals

Formal entrance

Usually used in royal ceremonies.
Guests will already be in the church at their places. The entrance to the church should be performed in this order:

  • pageboys
  • the bride on her father’s left arm
  • bridesmaids (if there is some)
  • the groom with his mother (yes, after the bride, you have well understood)
  • the bride’s mother and the groom’s father
  • the witnesses of the spouses
  • the siblings of the spouses
  • the closest relatives and friends.

Before the entrance to the church, the groom will wait for the bride at the churchyard, he will help her getting off the car and he will give her the bouquet.

Traditional entrance

It is the most common solution for entrance to the church.

Guests will already be in the church at their places.

The groom will enter to the church as first, carrying his mother arm in arm. He will be followed by witnesses, the bride’s mother and the groom’s father.

The bride will arrive with some minutes delay carrying her bouquet, together with her father who will entrust her to the groom once at the altar, kissing her on her forehead and shaking her husband-to-be hand.

Entrance together

This is a solution which is not very used, in reality.

The groom will wait for the bride at the churchyard and he will help her getting off the car, giving her the bouquet.

Together, holding hands or arm in arm, they will walk along the church nave until the altar.

Guests will already be in the church at their places.

You choose this kind of entrance if the spouses are not so young or in case parents cannot accompany their guys to the altar.

Solemn entrance

The groom will wait for the bride at the churchyard, together with guests.

Once the bride has arrived, the groom will give her the bouquet and then you have to take your positions to get to the altar.

Pageboys will be the first, followed by the bride on her father’s arm, bridemaids, the groom together with his mother, the groom’s father with the bride’s mother and parents and friends at last.

And you which one of this ritual have you chosen?
