I’m using a song called “make us one” and its by Cindy Morgan (who I’m not a fan of, but a good friend of mine is singing it!) but I too am struggling to decide how long it will take and when I should try to space out the bridesmaids entrances, etc. It’s tricky, I’m going to go to the church when I’m home next (planning an iowa wedding from denver!) and try to figure out how long it will take. It probably depends on the aisle length as well? If anyone has any rules of thumb, i’d love to know them too!

We’re doing an instrumental version of “Lo, How a Rose Er’e Blooming”. Look it up on youtube! It’s very sweet.

I’ve been wondering the same thing about song length (because we are also going nontraditional on this). My plan is to find out the length of the aisle at our church- measure that out somewhere (probably my parent’s yard, since itll be quite a distance) and walk it at the pace I want the bridal party to, then multiply by the number of pairs in the wedding party. Plus add a few extra seconds – you can always pause while the music finishes, but you dont want to seem like you’re playing musical chairs and need to rush to the front of the church when the music stops!

Sounds a little in depth (and slightly nutty) but otherwise, how could I figure it out?
