As a Jazz Band in the greater Los Angeles and in the greater Tampa Bay area, we have performed at several hundred weddings so far. We had the honor to be part of one of the most important events of a couple’s life and add our magic, to make this day unique and memorable.
With the next blogs we like to shed some light for the brides and grooms to be on the customary parts of a traditional Western wedding and include definition too. Of course this should only serve as inspiration, as each wedding is unique and there are no set in stone rules on the parts and sequence.
All parts of the formal exchange of vows in a special location.
The ceremonious entry of the wedding party at the beginning of the wedding ceremony.
In Christian religion in church, the bride walking down the aisle accompanied by her father towards the altar, where the groom awaits her.
In a traditional Jewish processional, the groom’s parents escort him down the aisle, followed by the bride being escorted down the aisle by her parents.
A female friend who attends on a bride at her wedding.
A man who attends the bridegroom in a wedding ceremony.
Often the processional begins with bridesmaids and groomsmen walking down the aisle, typically paired up.
MAID OF HONOR:
The most important bridesmaid at a wedding ceremony
A man serving as the main groomsman and right hand of the groom leading up and during a wedding.
The maid of honor and the best man walk down after all other bridesmaids and groomsmen have made their way down the aisle.
Typically a young person who carries the rings during a wedding ceremony.
Usually a younger girl who spreads flower petals on the floor before the bride or to carry a bouquet of flowers.
The ring bearer will then carry the rings to the altar, flowed by the flower girl.
