Complete Guide On How To Make A Wedding Intro
The traditional intros for the bride and groom that you can give typically follow this format:
- The parents of the bride will walk together first; if they are separated or widowed, they can be escorted by another person
- The parents of the groom follow the bride’s parents; when introducing the parents of the couple, use their complete names and role (e.g., Mr. Adam Smith, father of the groom)
- The wedding party follows the parents of the couple; you’ll call each person’s full name and role, whether they’re the maid of honor, bridesmaid, groomsmen, or best man
- Everyone else will take their seats, and then the bride and groom can enter
- The wedding MC will gather the attention of the guests and introduce the couple with their names
- Finally, the newlyweds will enter, so make sure that the MC will set the energy for their arrival
- The MC will encourage the guests to clap and cheer for the newlyweds
Modifications to personalize wedding intros
- After the parents of the newlyweds take their place, the wedding party can have a more fun way to get introduced
- The MC will still introduce the names and roles of each wedding party member, but they can do a short dance before going to their seats
- You can also commemorate your culture by including other traditions in the wedding intro
- Bigger weddings can also include other people in the introduction, especially if the guests want to honor some of the guests; this can mean having their grandparents and children get introduced as well
- If the couple chooses not to have a wedding party or they have a very intimate wedding, it’s okay to skip the wedding intro altogether and simply have the MC welcome the newlyweds
What To Say To Welcome Guests At A Wedding?
Making a wedding entrance is not only about introducing the wedding party and the newlyweds. The wedding MC will also welcome the guests and thank them for coming to set the tone for the reception.
Here are some examples you can have as a guide for writing your entrance script:
- Hello everyone! I’m [role to the wedding or relationship to the couple], and I’m so happy to welcome you all here on this beautiful day where we celebrate the union of [couple’s names.]
- Good evening dearest friends and family! Are you ready to celebrate the marriage of [couple’s names]? The [wedding hosts] would like to welcome and thank you for being part of this fantastic occasion.
- The marriage ceremony is a way to celebrate the love and unity of people, regardless of culture or religion. Today, we will celebrate [names of the couple]’s commitment and love to each other. Let’s get started!
- Dear friends and family, we are gathered here today to celebrate our newlyweds [names of the couple]. Our hosts would also like to extend their appreciation to everyone here. So without further ado, let’s now get the party started!
- Good evening everyone! [Names of the couple] are here celebrating their love with us, and they’re asking, are you all ready to get drunk and dance the night away?
You can see many tones and formality when welcoming the guests at the reception. But of course, if you’re writing a wedding intro for the ceremony, it should be more formal.
The wedding officiant will welcome the guests at the wedding ceremony. If you know an officiant, they might also help you make traditional intros for the bride and groom.

How Do You Introduce Wedding Speakers?
