I’m kind of weird but I have one for the moms, one for the boys, one for the girls, one for me, we are having a soloist in the middle of the ceremony, and then our exit. So that makes 6 songs total. I just wanted each group to feel like they were special. So I picked songs that show this day isn’t just about me (cause i don’t want it to be)

There are no hard-and-fast rules about how many processional songs you should have, but it’s kind of weird that your mom wants her own.

The most common ways of doing it are one song/piece for the bridal party and one just for the bride, or else a single song/piece that everyone walks in to, including the bride (after a pause). If parents are part of the processional, they generally walk to the same piece of music that the bridal party does. If they aren’t in the processional, usually they are seated during the last prelude just before the processional begins (i.e. a song for “seating of the mothers/grandmothers”). Could that be what your mom means?

We’re having a few different songs playing behind a slide show of pictures of me and my fiance and our friends (Jason Mraz I’m Yours, Elton John Your Song, Ben E. King, Stand By Me, etc.).

My BMs will walk down the aisle to At Last by Etta James

I will walk down the aisle to Mozart’s Romance movement from Eine Kleine Nacht Musik

Still working on a recessional song

I think moms/parents usually walk down the aisle to the same song as the BMs, but both of my parents are walking me down the aisle so it’s Mozart for them too.

I’m only having two or three depending on how long it takes to sign the register/do a recessional.

BMs and bride entrance: acoustic version of Today by Smashing Pumpkins

Signing register/recessional: Float On by Modest Mouse

Additional recessional song if it takes ages: Starlight by Muse

Parents and WP walked down the aisle to the same song. They had a short walk and it was a 4 minute song

Then I walked down the aisle to a different song.

Then there was a song during our sand ceremony.

Then the recessional song.

So 4 total

@Soon2BD-CBee:  Thank you! I figure the string version is a good way of incorporating the song and still making it wedding-y.

@futuremrsmendez:  definitely edited down. Fh and the boys are walking out to an instrumental of I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons. The whole song would be way too long for them, as would the girls song (small bridal party). I meet with our sound tech on rehearsal night, so he and i will go over everything to make sure we are on the same page. I just wanted everyone to feel as happy as i will be walking down the aisle 🙂
