So I come from a very creative and talented family, one of my bridesmaids and my MOH who are both family and best friends of mine are in an amazing band and have stunning voices.
Now, I dont want their band singing at my wedding as I’d like them both to relax and enjoy the party, and its not logistical since we are getting married in Sri Lanka.
Question is, I would like my girls to sing a duet and sing me up the isle. Now because they are bridesmaids/MOH, obviously they would need to walk down the ilse first and be positioned….the song I want them to sing is about 5 mins long, but can be cut back.
How do I do this :SSSSSSS???? Should I have a seprate song playing for the parents, bridesmaids, etc and then just before I walk down, they start siging? Or WILL THIS BE TOO PROLONGED?
I have no idea what to do, but I really want my girls with the angel voices to sing me or every one down the isle….
Any advice appreciated xxx

It’s awesome that you have this opportunity for your dear friends to “sing your way down the aisle” for your wedding! It sounds like a wonderful idea.
A suggestion could be that while they are walking down the aisle to take their places before you, a song could be playing (on a sound system or whatever), different from the live performance song.
Then, that song would stop when they are in their places.
At the moment you are beginning to walk down the aisle towards them, they could begin their song, serenading you along the way, until you take your place as well.
I don’t see why the song couldn’t be completed even after you are standing in your place. I know if I were in the audience I would be delighted with a live performance by the angelic voices you have described. I think most people would really love that, it’s unique, personal and very special.
Best of luck and I hope all goes well for you!
