    I'm not really sure what a grand march is.  But I'm assuming it would have something to do with the wedding, so wouldn't you wear your wedding dress?

    I had just thought that some people wore goofy stuff? like cowboys hats, sunglasses, etc.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    We had a grand march at high school prom, but I've never heard that term for a wedding..  Do you perhaps mean your entrance to the reception when you're announced?  If so, I'd imagine you'd just wear either your wedding gown or your reception dress(if you're changing). Other than that, I can't see myself doing any sort of "march" at my wedding, just the processional, recessional, and intro at the reception..

    I've never heard of a grand march at a wedding.  We did one for out senior prom and it was silly even then.  Skip the grand march.

    If it's the "reception entrance" you're referring to, my WP and I wore what we wore to the ceremony. And we did it at the beginning of the reception (You know, when we entered it).

    We picked a fun song, that was it. We all were announced and walked in. The song by itself was enough to make a statement apparently, because the guests still keep talking about it 6 months later.

    I think people wearing sunglasses and clowns wigs and doing funny dances during the entrance doesn't look nearly as cute and silly as the wedding industry and YouTube tries to make it sound.

    I can't remember for the life of me what song we had the wedding party enter the reception to, but we entered the reception to the War Chant, which is often played to build spirit at our college's football games.  We did the Seminole Chop and had a good time with it.  All the guests got involved too.  Definitely fit our personality because we're big FSU fans.

    DH got to pick the entrance music in exchange for me getting to pick the first dance. He picked the Theme From The Legend of Zelda for the WP (His favorite video game, and a favorite of our WP that actually games-which was about half), and then for us it was "You're The Best" from the Karate Kid.

    Again, guests are still asking me about it 6 months later, so I guess nobody's really used those before, lol.

    We had a certain song picked out for our entrance, but I have no idea if it was playing or not.  Our music cues were kind of screwy all night, and since the laptop running the music was on the opposite side of the room from the door and the cake, I honestly couldn't tell you if the correct song was playing for either.  Ultimately didn't really matter.

    OP:  Please come back and tell us what a grand march is.
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146

    I totally still would have done it even if we were married in Gainesville.  The Gators can shove it.  <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-laughing.gif" border="0" alt="Laughing" title="Laughing" />
