I’m just a little confused about how the order of things works…
Will you be playing one song for the procession where everyone else walks down and then another for when you walk down? I don’t know what to do at all! There’s a song that I’ve always wanted to walk down the aisle to, but I think it might actually be better for seating our moms and such.
If I use it then though, I have no idea what I would actually walk to.
Can you tell I actually haven’t been to a lot of weddings? I guess I have some time to think about this lol but I want to figure it out.
This is the song that I’ve always wanted. It’s about 3:15 minutes. Georges Delerue was a beautiful composer, and it’s sort of a tribute to my dad as well because he would always share with me the soundtrack music that he loved.

i think that it is traditional to have a different song played for the bride when she walks down… it helps signal to the guest that you are coming! Though if you picked the right song and timed it right i suppose you coudl use just one song. I will have a song playing when my family come in, another for the groomsmad and groom, 3rd song for the bridesmaids and finally one for myself… A good DJ or band is key lol! But in the end the decision is your! There really isn’t a completely right or wrong answer

I used one song — we didn’t have bridesmaids and groomsmen, so it just made sense to have one song.

We had one song for FMIL (the song my parent’s named me after), a song for the BM’s ( Theme song to Boondock Saints) then the one my Da and I walked down too (theme from Last of Mohicans) and then a different one for the recessional (Drop Kick Murphy’s song).
I remember that movie and the song is great to walk up to.
