So me, my 2 bridesmaids and page boy will be walking in to amazed by lonestar. I really like the whole song but with only 4 people to walk down I don’t want it to look weir. (Unexperienced wedding guest here) would it be ok to have the song playing for around 50 seconds to a minute before anyone walked or should we walk at the start and then just stop playing the song?

@Mrs2b2014: I think that’s fine, but you might want to look at some software/plugins that will let you actually choose exactly which 50 seconds you want. That way you could pick your favorite verse or the chorus and choose an appropriate stopping place so it doesn’t come off choppy.

Maybe use an instrumental verson that way it won’t seem as cut off?

So it would be better to use only a portion of the song than habe the music going for 50 seconds before we start walking? We have someone playing it for us so can chop and change it as much as we like.

@Mrs2b2014: I used the exact same song and had 2 bridesmaids and myself with my dad. We were outdoors so essentially i had an incredibly long aisle… So in the end it probably did start playing for around 30s before people could really see me but we just had our music person fade the song out once we were finished walking…

@Mrs2b2014: I would have it start at a good point (maybe a favorite verse) and then have it fade out into the next song you are using.
