…and not share one with the rest of the bridal party, seating of the mothers etc?
I’m pretty sure that’s the case but wouldn’t that be a really short version of the song? I can’t imagine my walk down that tiny botanical garden to be longer than 30 seconds!

Well, I believe that’s when they start to play the “Here comes the bride” song. But the song I’m using wil just be one song for all of us, only because I love it so much. I’m going to just have to really time it well to where the “dramatic” part of the song will be when I walk down.

Usually that’s how it goes! I think we’re just having one song because we have a really small bridal party and I don’t want to have to worry about the music messing up, but traditionally there is separate music for the bride so that everyone knows she’s coming and can stand up.

Yes, the bride gets her own song, unless she deems it otherwise.
Here is a link that goes through the order:
If you do a search for bridal procession order, there are other lists.
I am having my own song 🙂

I agree with @Brianalaura
It should be just one song.

@Wendy, that’s exactly what I’m doing! I have a dramatic musical cue haha…wonder if we have the same song!

Usually the bride gets her own song. The rehearsal will let you do a practice run to see how long it actually takes. Most people who say it only takes 30 seconds (meanwhile they pick a 5 min song that they want to play in its entirely just for them) have not practiced walking slowly to the music. You won’t know anything until that point.

Thanks everyone. @Ember78, that’s a good point. I will practice walking slowly because I do want to walk to Air on the G by Bach and I really would like to hear as much of the piece as possible, at least about 1-2 minutes of it.

Also, there are a few bars of any song that are played before the bride makes her entrance to allow guests the cue to stand up.

were having one song… and the three BMs know when to go down the aisle and I know my cue. well hopefully I can remember.. I have also timed it that it gives me enough time to make it all in. Maid/Matron of Honor to arranged the train, if I am having one (extra 30 seconds or so) and ill just get the sound guy to fade it out.
