I’m just floundering around right now bees lol! I’m trying to figure out how many songs we’re going to need for the processional and how the processional even goes! Apparently I’ve never really paid attention to everything before the bride/bridal party.
So if you all could point me in the right direction I would great appreciate it!
Our wedding party is very small also, just two on either side if that matters at all.

My venue has asked for a few songs. Here is the list
1) seating of the parents and grandparents, and entrance of the groomsmen
2) Entrance of bridesmaids, flower girl, and ring bearer
3) entrance of the bride (bride’s processional)
4) exit of the bride and groom
I think you could combine a couple of these, and this certainly isn’t set in stone, but I hope this helps!

Order of Procession: (Traditional)
This is a very simple version–If you’re like me who has a more than one dad/mom ect it gets a little more packed. The idea is to always have the groom’s grandparent/parents before bride’s grandparents/parents. The order of procession begins with the person furthest in relation to the bride (groom’s gparents) and ending with the person closest in relation to the bride (your mother) if gparents/parents are married you can choose to have them walk together, OR you can have the female escorted by an usher (or whomever you choose) and the spouse follows closely behind.
Really though, it’s up to you and what works for your family. But that is the most basic/traditional format.
As for music, it depends on if you’re using a DJ or having an ipod. For instance, I strongly recommend having only 3 songs (1 for gparents/parents, 1 for bridal party and 1 for the bride) If you have a DJ, he should be able to loop the music so if gma is a little slow getting down the aisle or if Bridesmaid A takes to long touching up her lipstick, you don’t have to worry about the music ending too early. If you do not have a DJ or someone that can loop, you may want to choose lengthy songs.
Hope this helps and that it gets you going in the right direction. Keep in mind that many people have different ways they prefer the processional order to go. Choose the one that works best for you! =)
