If the song is long enough and you like the whole thing I don’t see why not.  We considered that too but ended up finding two songs we liked.

@vess5:  I only used one song for my entire processional, including me. I loved it because there was a big crescendo/ climax when the back doors opened and I came down the aisle. IMO, having more than one song just draws it out more.

@vess5:  I plan on having one song for the bridal party/family and then switch to another song for me…so I don’t think it would be any different if you did it all with one song!

I’d never heard of using more than one song before I joined WB. But then in the UK, the traditional order is : bride (and her father if he is accompanying her), then bridesmaids. That’s it. The other parents, groom and best man wait at the front (there are no groomsmen). So take my opinion with a pinch of salt if it’s very different to what you’re used to.  🙂

We had just one song. I feel like it’s kind of strange to stop and start music during the processional.
