hello bees! im new to this but everyone seems very helpful! im sitting here trying to plan out the ceremony and cremony music. im just having a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man to keep it simple and elegant. im wondering exactly how many songs i need to find for the ceremony? Do i need to find seperate songs for when guests are arriving, when Maid/Matron of Honor walk down the aisle, when m father and I walk down and then we my new husband and i walk down? so four songs? does that sound about right?
thank you, thank you, thank you!

For my ceremony we had 4 songs total.
1. Recessional (seating of the mothers, grandparents) “Love Me Tender” Norah Jones
After everyone was seated the groom and groomsmen took their spots at the alter. When they were all posistioned we went into the processional.
2. Bridesmaid/MOH processional “Question” Old 97s
When they were all in place my song began.
3. Brides processional “Something” Vitamin String Quartet (It’s an instrumental version of Something by the Beatles)
Then there was the ceremony. We didnt do any special sand pouring, lighting candles, singing, etc. so there was no music.
4. Recessional “Another One Bites the Dust” Vitamin String Quartet We played this after we kissed and the bridal party exited. 🙂
I know my songs are very non traditional but you get the idea. I think it worked out perfectly! It is your wedding too so you do what you are most comfortable with.
*The DJ did play music while our guests were entering and being seated. I have no idea what those songs were. 🙂
