are any of you doing this or have you done this?
i would have it for the bridal party and my entrace…or should i change it then?
the song i really want has a long intro and i feel like if i just used it for myself, it wouldn’t get to the best part by the time i’m finished walking.
what are your thoughts?

I’m having one song. Mainly because I have a really small bridal party and I also just didnt want to have someone bother with changing music. If you have one song that you really like I’m sure it would be fine. You may try a little test trial at home. If you know how long you’re aisle is going to be you can walk that area and time how long its going to take the entire party to make it to the altar and gauge it from there.

I’m thinking of only using one song. Our aisle is really short and I only have 3 bridesmaids. I feel like splitting it into two different songs might be weird.
Is there a part of the song you like that’s more distinct? I think it would definitely work really well if you started your walk to a part of the song that sounds a bit different. Does that make any sense or am I talking crazy? 🙂

I just used one for everyone…parents, bridal party, flower girls/ring bearers and me.
It’s a beautiful piece that’s over 7 mins long.

@Gerbera: Just out of curiousity… do you mind sharing what the 7 minute song is? I am looking for a long song to use for the entire processional.

cool! my song is 4 min and 20 seconds, so i definitely think that it’s long enough.
@OttawaBride2011: i know what you mean…the song builds and builds so i really wanted to walk down at it’s height, and i think that would work!
so for the mothers, the 5 sets of bridesmaids/groomsmen, and the flower girl and myself, 4.20 seems long enough. yes?

This was our processional:
Love Story Meets Viva La Vida by Jon Schmidt
We loved it. It was perfect especially in our setting. 🙂
