1. It’s okay to have the same song playing for the entire processional.  We did and people weren’t confused.

2. I have only ever seen the bridal party standing during the ceremony.

3. It’s fine not to have people throw things, usually when they do it, it is later at the exit, not during the actual recessional.

I’m getting married in Haiti, and here the bridal party sits. Even the bride and groom! They will walk in and stand one at the end of each row on either side of the aisle. Then when we sit down (after my dad gives me away), they will sit too.

1. I think it’s fine to play the same song for both. Probably better than trying to make your walk down the aisle reaaaaallllyyyy slow! 

2. In outdoor weddings, I have only ever seen the bridal party standing during the whole ceremony. In church ceremonies, however, they sit for some of it. However that’s not to say that you can’t have them sit if you are concerned for their comfort. Depends on how long your ceremony will be and the atmosphere you will have. 

3. It is absolutely fine for them to just clap!

PS I love that you are having your dogs take some of the roles.

1) I see couple do this all the time.

2) Yes, they usually stand with you. They are “your” bridal party, so they stand with you.

3) Most of the couples I work with only having the traditional clapping at the recessional.

4) Love pet friendly weddings!
