It depends how long your aisle is, and you could draw it out a bit by not coming out right away, maybe like 15 seconds in or something. Then think about hugging your dad, him shaking your grooms’s hand, etc while the music still plays.

I think it’ll be okay! Practice walking with the music, so you know about where you should be at one part of the song.

That seems a little long to me, but I agree with pengoala! Practice walking so you can see.

I totally delayed coming in for a few seconds just cuz I got distracted listening to the violinist, and poor Darling Husband almost had a heart attack. When I watch our video now, I don’t like that it took me so long to come in.

The way Darling Husband explained it, “It was only a few seconds, but in wedding time, it felt like forever.” You may want to ask your hubby to be what he thinks or at least clue him in to your extended walk down the aisle. 🙂

These are the details that you can work out at your Rehearsal.  Do 2 or more run-thrus… the first without the music, so everyone knows what they are supposed to do, where to go, when to walk, where to stand etc.  Whoever is the Officiant usually talks everyone thru the first run-thru so there is no confusion and everyone gets a grasp for how it works.  And then do a second run-thru with the music with everyone doing what they should when they should.  Whoever is running the recording, will then have a general idea of how far in the piece will play on your Wedding Day (give or take a wee bit).

Good question – the piece of music I want is 40sec & I’m scared it’s too short!

I loved that song and seriously considered it for our first dance. I think you should be finewith that time. If you have bridesmaids you could space them out a bit?

I love that song.  Try to go to the venue and practice walking down, and count.  Go at pace you want to go when walking down the aisle.  I did that and mine ends at almost 2:14 w/a 20 sec. intro and me walking down then them turning it off after dad kisses me and starts to walk away. (I hope this will happen)
