I’m no expert, but for us, since we’re having a DJ, so he’s timing the music to the people walking and to when the DOC tells him the next batch of people are walking.

My Grandpa and his wife, FI’s Grandpa and his Girlfriend, FI’s Grandma, my Mom, FI’s Dad and Girlfriend are all walking down to one song.

Three Groomsmen are walking down to one song.

Fiance is walking down to one song.

Four BMs are walking down to one song.

Two ringerbearers and two flower children are walking down to one song.

Me and my Dad are walking to one song.

So, we have six songs in total.

We’re having background music playin while everyone arrives etc, then when it’s my turn, the song will play as my bridesmaids walk down with me after. All one song. I also think it depends how many bridesmaids, and how lthe the aisle is. If one song won’t fit then ull have to have 2. The above comment is good too, everyone gets their own song

I want to do the processional to Canon in D, but I’m just nervous that the part I want to walk out for (the really dramatic part) is too far into it… I only have 4 BMs and even if we have all of the groomsmen and groom, BMs and ring bearer and officiant walk out during that song, will it be too long before I come out?? PLEASE HELP! I want to come out at the part that is 5:15-5:24 of the version done by English Chamber Orchestra… is that too long?  How long do processionals normally take?  

We have:

4 BMs, 4 Groomsmen, 1 groom (obvi), officiant, ring bearer (no flower girl), mother of bride and that’s pretty much it…


please please please send me some advice 🙂
