1. Test his knowledge about the bride at the gate
A beautiful way to add spunk at the groom’s entry is to test his knowledge about the bride at the gate.

And yeah, don’t miss to take the entry tax from the groom. After all that’s the right of each bridesmaid to ask for the tax.
3. Let the groom perform some dares
Yeah, a nice to check out how daring the groom is in all. Often men consider their weddings a biggest dare, let the groom feel it, at the entry door itself that at each step he has to perform some dare to get his honey. Yeah, Keep a bowl full of chits ready that has dares in them, present it to the groom at the entry and let him enter only when he performs at least 3 – 5 dares. Make sure your dares are not very daring, of course you have to see the place also. However, you can have dare options such as, ‘sing a romantic song for the bride’, ‘sing bride’s favorite song’, ‘say a daring dialogue to the bride’s father’, ‘say’ I love you to the bride on a video call’, etc.
4. Welcome the groom with some welcome drinks
Another fun way to welcome the groom at the wedding is to give him some welcome drinks. However, the best would be to have twist to it, like adding groom’s favorite drink in a baby bottle, or nursing bottle or feeding bottle. It will be absolute fun for all of you believe me. Everybody at the door is going to enjoy the twist seeing groom having his drink in a feeding bottle. Well, you can have variations in it.
5. Welcome the groom with a well-choreographed dance performance

This is going to be very, really very entertaining for all of you.
