    Our DJ is just going to fade the song out when I get to the end of the aisle. Is it possible to have yours fade out?

    We are doing an instrumental, and our DJ is going to fade it out.  This alone makes the DJ money worth it (I was stressing about it too). 

    How big is your bridal party?  My 3 flower girls and 2 BM and I are all walking to the same song, so that will help.

    can you enlist a close friend to do the fade-out for you?

    Okay. Maybe you could edit the song to be just a little shorter (cut out some of your non favorite parts), and then wait a little while before staring down the aisle.  I would find it VERY awkward to stand at the front for more than 15 seconds or so.  However, if that wouldn’t be awkward for you, then don’t stress it.  It will give you and Mr. Grape a chance to gaze lovingingly at each other (my FI and I would just start cracking up if he had to quietly look at each other for that long)

    If you’re not shy, you can also make a moment of it, a la “The Office” or this uber-cool twinkle-toes couple (even if you’d never in your life have the chutzpah to do something like this, it’s so fun to watch):

    you can download an editing software online like Audacity….then you can edit the song to fade when you want it to….save it as a new mp3 file then just play it….

    if you don’t want to tackle it, i can do it for you….just private message me…

    You could come in and wait for a bit before you start walking. I did that, and it helped. I had a musician though, who cut out the music at the appropriate time.

    Maybe you could have a friend nearby who will stop it at a good time in the music approximately when you think you’ll get to the front?

    I was going to give the same advice as MamaHusky. Fade it out yourself and save the file to your iPod.

    Also, you can account for a few more seconds to get situated at the end of the aisle, but probably not so long as to let the rest of the song play out. You don’t want the beginning of the ceremony to be awkward for you or your guests!
