Any recommendations for processional music for a ceremony with no wedding party?
The processional will be
My grandma, escorted by my stepdad
His brother and wife (holding their two daughters)
Then for the bridal processional, my mom escorting me
I’m just doing the traditional wedding march for when I walk down the aisle, but I never paid any attention to what music the wedding party walks to. Should I do something a little different since its not a traditional processional? I’m assuming it should just be one song for the processional, right?
Also, and this seems silly. Any opinions on how the groom should get to the front? I haven’t been to a huge number of weddings, but how do I not remember how the groom usually gets up there? haha Should he just walk out before the processional (to the same music, different music, awkwardly-in silence)
ahhh. I’m freaking out.

What are you doing for your music (organ,piano, ipod, etc?)

The music should be something that matches the tone or theme of the wedding. Keep an ear out and make a list of songs you like and see what your fiance would agree on. It should be edited for length, taking in to account the number of people walking and the distance they have to travel. Maybe you can even edit two cuts and try each at the rehearsal to see what works best, and I’d tack on your wedding march at the end so the dj doesn’t have to switch tracks. If you don’t know how to edit music, ask some friends if they can. I would be happy to help as well.
For getting him up there, oftentimes I’ve just seen him walk up without music before the processional, but only if he’s been mingling with the guests as they arrive and get seated. If not, maybe he and the officiant can lead off the processional with the processional song, entering from a different area from the rest if you don’t want him to see you.

I like the idea of him and the minister leading off the processional! Thanks!
