@Brittanyg20:  I imagine you should be fine, but could you doublecheck with the planner, just to be safe?

you probably won’t finish the song.  do you like a portion of it?  can your dj or whoever is in charge of playing the music fade the song out when you reach the alter?

Just have the DJ fade out the song if it goes too long

@Brittanyg20:  I agree with you. I don’t think it is long enough. I had 3 BMs/groomsmen, a ring bearer, and myself that walked in to the violin book version of Canon in D and we just made it. Granted it wasn’t the full version, but I would say it was as long as your was.

What if you chose a different song for the bridesmaids, and then used Ho, Hey for your walk and just chopped the verse about Chinatown out? It’s not super wedding appropriate anyway, so I don’t think you’d lose anything. You could also lose some of the chorus repetitions if you needed to.

On a completely unrelated note, your picture is giving me SERIOUS venue envy.
