Hey bees!! I need some help, and I am hoping that someone here can give me some advice.
My fiancee is Serbian and we are having a Serbian Orthodox Ceremony. I have so many questions, but one that keeps coming to mind is: What does the bride walk down the isle to???
I am not sure what I am supposed to do when it comes to this.
If there are any Serbian brides out there, please give me any information you have on Serbian wedding ceremonies. We are metting with the church next week, so hopefully I can get some answers there as well!!!
As always, hope all is well!!!

Congrats on your engagement! When you walk down the asile it is normally to the choir and the first song to start the service. I hope this helps!

It’s been a while since I’ve been to a wedding in the church but I’m pretty sure you walk down the aisle together first and then your guests follow. It’s best to ask your priest though.

My Fiance is Macedonian Orthodox and we are getting married in his church. I am just walking down to the same song most brides walk down the isle to with my father giving me away once I reach my Fiance. I know that there are some more traditional things in the church, but seeing as how I’m American and grew up Catholic, I wanted it this way.
I would talk to the priest if anything. He should be able to clear it all for ya!

In the Russian Orthodox tradition, the bride walks in as the choir sings “Come Forth from Lebanon My Bride” which is a really beautiful song:
“Come forth from Lebanon, my Bride,
Come forth from Lebanon my Spouse,
Draw near my fair one, draw near my dove
For your voice is sweet
And your face is beautiful.”
