I’m curious to see responses too, as we’re not planning to have music either! We’re going to City Hall in San Francisco and renting a space for the ceremony, and my only invited musician is my brother, who is already conducting our ceremony. I’m not having flower girls or bridesmaids, so I guess I’ll just stick my head out and tell people to sit down…? Ha! 

No, but I guess they’ll see my groom walking out and assume it’s about that time!

If you feel like you would like music for ambience what about making a tiny ipod playlist and finding a way to have that played as you walk down? That way you wouldn’t have any awkward silence (I only say that because I would find it awkward). If you are fine with the idea of walking down with just the sounds of nature I think that’s just fine too! As long as you are comfortable that’s all that matters. I’m not sure if people really notice the music when they walk down with all of the thoughts of excitment going on in their heads either.

@sienna76:  I’m sure the second witness would be more than happy to oblige. We’re getting married in a tiny one room schoolhouse with no room for musicians so we’ll be using an ipod. With the right portable speaker it will sound just as lovely!

When I do initmate weddings I often am asked to handle the music. I am sure that your officiant could do the same for you. If the second witness does not want to do it for you.
