Reception entrance ideas - help!!

We are trying to think of something cute/funny for our entrance to the reception. Most of our wedding party is not really comfortable dancing in front of alot of people so no dancing in. My fiance and I both have the same goofy sense of humor so we wanted to do someting fun. Props would be ok to use. The only idea we've had so far is too have the guys come in 007 style by wearing sunglasses, using their hands for "guns" and doing "spy moves" ex: sneaking table to table, rolling on floor, etc... Any other suggestions would be appreciated!! Our entrance song is Stevie Wonder - For Once In My Life. Thanks!!

    I have a half-serious half-joking obsession with Britney Spears, so when each one of my bridesmaid/usher couples walk in, we are playing a different Britney song. Maybe you could do a theme like that as well, have a different Stevie song for each entrance.

    If you want a funny entrance, great, but please don't make the wedding party do it. Limit it to just you and FI. They'll probably say yes because they're your friends, but in actuality they might be humiliated. It happened to a friend of mine (he felt bad saying no to the bride and groom, and he complained before and after the wedding to our group of friends about how embarrassing it was ... and he's not even a shy guy). You could burst through a big paper sign or something.

    This wouldn't be my style (actually, I lie, I think this would be amusing but BF would rather crawl in a hole and die) but perhaps you and your Fi could come in with blow up trumpets or toy harmonicas/ tamborines and pretend to play along to the song I agree not to ask your WP to get involved unless they are completely 100% up for doing it and enthusiastic about doing it.

    Ok - first of all we're NOT doing the 007 thing that was just an example so you would know kind of what we're looking for. It was my wedding parties idea to do something fun. We were all together and someone came up with the idea and everyone else agreed. If someone wasn't comfortable I wouldn't make then do anything. I'm not forcing anyone to do this... I appreciate the people that have given me good ideas. As for all the negative responses - why? Maybe you didn't want sillyness at your wedding but this is our wedding and that's the kind of people we are. If you don't agree with my ideas that's fine but why post that? I didn't ask if you thought I should do something fun or not. So like an adorable little skunk once said - "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all" :)

    You did ask and everyone can post their responses. You can't tell people not to if they don't agree with you. Personally I wouldn't do anything in that context but everyone is different and if its you and FI nature to be funny and your WP wants to be involved I say go ahead. I think it also depends on the guests that you have, you know that. I like humor to and it can play into a wedding or reception. I like the idea of the 007 thing minus the rolling on the floor. You can all come into the Reception with that music playing. Its your wedding have fun!

    I absolutely love your idea of coming into the reception in a fun way!!  I just went to a wedding 3 weeks ago where instead of being introduced at the grand march, the bridal party was introduced as the entered into the reception hall. This was great as it eased the formality of not knowing everyone right away. Each couple in the brial party cam in doing their own idea....one couple piggy backed in...one was lassoing the other..the groom came in with the bride over his shoulder. ...this was a complete hit at the wedding.A complete wedding is one that has the personal touch of the bride and groom. If this is your style go for it. All of us responding don't know your style...so I say go for the goofy entrance and make your day memorable!!
