So this is totally what I said I wanted to do months ago*. But I'm afraid I've been a little overwhelmed by the logistics. How does one let the guests know that they need to parade down to the ceremony and how does one start said parade? Is there a parade leader? Please I need a parade planner! Also, 120 puppets. K, thanks!

*sans puppets. Just a nice, relaxing stroll accompanied by music.

I know! I want a parade after my ceremony to the reception, New Orleans style! I have no idea how to get this started. Perhaps choose a few wedding party members to get it started!

Wow, big project. Honestly you know your guests the best. Is this something you could convince yours to do? I think mine would look at my like I had an arm growing out of my head, but that's just my crowd.

And yes, I think you would need a parade leader, or two.

Aw, I don't think this will be hard at all. Make clear there's a gathering spot for the ceremony. Designate two ushers from your friends for this unconventional ushering gig. Have them meet the gathering with a box full of puppets or ribbons on sticks (I'm going with ribbon, as I think it might be more DIY friendly? Or you could have a paper-animal cutout crafting party for the "puppets") One usher starts the parade and one heads up the rear.

You might also go with an instrument or two in the group. Just for the audible joy.

I worry that I'd feel foolish.
