I honestly forgot what I used, but I talked it over with my organist, and he made sure to only play for the period of time that they would be walking. My song choice for them was about 3 minutes.    He ended it at a good point after everyone had finished walking and then *ta-dahhh!!!* it was time for my song and me walking.   

So if you are having a pianist, organist or a different musician, I would bring it up with them and see what they would suggest doing. Often they’ve been in the business long enough that they have a plan in mind once you bring it up to them.

We had 2 bridesmaids, the flower girl/ringbearer and me and my dad all walk in to one song. It was 3 minutes long and we had to fade it out. The guys were already up front so they didn’t walk in to anything.

allyfally:  We played Canon in D. It didn’t have lyrics so it worked out just fine… and it was the same music for the parents too.

allyfally:  are you using recorded or live music? We did recorded and had a techy friend chop down two songs for us, one for the bridal party and one for my dad and myself. It’s the same way radio talks shows do buffer songs coming in and out of hard breaks. It worked well for us.

Pinkmoon:  we did the exact same thing (flower girl +2BM as well). Just asked DH’s friend who was manning the iPod to fade it out at the appropriate moment – I assume he did it fine but I honestly have no recollection at that point! Lol.

Pinkmoon:  Planning on doing the same thing.  Its not a long aisle and doesn’t take long for everyone.  Undecided on song though. It will be classical and will not be Canon in D.

goingtotherooftopoflove:  Haha are you me? We had a friend running the iPhone during the ceremony and told him to fade the volume out as well.
