I don’t mean how do you find a song that just fits. I’ve found plenty of those. But how do you know how long it will take each person to walk down the aisle? Do I need a separate song for the guys or will they be done so fast that we cut their song off at a random place? I plan on walking to the same song as my bridesmaids because I know I can’t walk for a whole song, but I want to come out at a certain part in each song. But how do I know how much time to allow for each girl? I don’t want the song to end before I get down the aisle, but I don’t want another minute of it playing while we stand there awkwardly. Any advice?

My friend had her song selected, and the world’s longest aisle, so it all worked out perfectly with only a few moments pause at the end before the song finished. Mind you we didn’t shuffle step down the aisle- we walked.
I’m having a string quartet play, so they’ll watch and wrap things up for my arrival.
Can you schedule a rehearsal at your venue? This might help you run through the song/s you have selected to find out which one is going to work best for the amount of girls and length of aisle you have.

taraelisabeth: I want to know this too!!!!
Luce587: Good idea, guess we need to bring rehearsal music with us (DJ won’t be there for the rehearsal of course, I guess that’s where having a live musician comes in handy, they can just keep it going or wrap it up)

I just chose the song I loved. They’ll just have to make it work! We’ll practice, I don’t think it’ll be too bad.
And I’m walking down to a different song than the rest. So that’s not a concern.

Luce587: Yes, we’ll have a rehearsal the day before. I just didn’t know if that would be enough time to work out timing issues.
nawella: Glad I’m not the only one!
sostobe: I’m really thinking I’ll also walk down to a different song than my girls also. I think it would just be too complicated to try to time me coming in at the exact moment in a song that I want.
