Oops, I started a similar board not seeing this one first! I am in the exact same boat, especially with it being an outdoor wedding there’s no where to walk into. I have no help but hopefully you get it figured out!

i had seven bridesmaids (yes i know alot haha) who went down in pairs before me with the MOH on her own

i also had my mum and brother walk down first 

i let the music play half a bar then they walked- then the girls- then i waited for a bit to come in on the last piece of the music and let it finish as i got to the altar and my husband to be!i think i ended up leaving quite a large gap between the maid of honour getting there and my arrival oops as i was determined to come in on a particular piece of music haha but guests said it added drama haha 😉

go with your gut! my walking out song was this! So dramatic but love it! The whole wedding party led by me and my new husband walked out to this with confetti!

Here is a pic of my dear Grandmother who is 90 as i walked down the aisle

she said after she was so overwhelmed by the day and the music and was just overcome with emotion! bless her! 

Good luck with your choices bees! xxx

You need to discuss all of this with the cellist.  Think about the time it will take you to walk from where you appear, up the aisle to your minister/officiant.  Think about the pace at which you will walk. An onsite rehearsal will help you determne these things. Practise your entrance in your wedding shoes.  Generally speaking too long is better than too short as you may feel silly if the music ends and you are half way up the aisle.  A good musician will tailor the piece to suit your entrance requirments.
