The Grand March
What is a Grand March,
The Grand March is a chance to show off your wedding
finery to all the guests at your reception. Men
put their jackets back on, and women pick up their
flowers. The Bridal party enters in pairs, in
the same order that they walked down the aisle,
circles the dance floor twice, and makes a "bridge."
The Bride and Groom follow the couples in and
around, but they go through the bridge. Traditionally,
each couple lowers their arms and 'traps' the
couple (remember the game "london bridge
is falling down?") and holds them there until
they kiss. After the newlyweds have emerged from
the bridge, everyone dances.
The Grand March is also
the part of the wedding reception where
you show off your individuality. Some couples
choose a slow, romantic song, while others choose
something more upbeat. Pick a song that reflects
your personality, or, if applicable, the theme
of your wedding.
If you're still lost, here are some
of the "fun" songs that have been commonly
used by other couples.
1. Sirus (the Chicago Bulls Theme)
This song is especially fun if you choose
to announce each member of the bridal party as
