@Stace126:  2 feet per second for slow walking so expect it to take 23 seconds minimum for each bridesmaid to make it down the aisle.  I would allow for 30 seconds to be safe.  I would assume you will be layering them (one starts at 10 seconds into the song, the next goes 15 seconds later, and so on) so I would think you want a song that lasts at least 2 minutes if you give a bit of extra time for them to line up and get settled before their song ends and you walk down.  So 3-4 minutes tops should be good.  You can always work things out slower or faster at the rehearsal (or you can pactice at home by marking the distance on the sidewalk.)
