So my ceremony location has a baby grand piano that we are allowed to use and my little bro just happens to be a fab-tab-ulous piano player. BUT he is also a groomsman.
I would love, love, love to have him playing the piano when I walk down the aisle. Would it be awkward to have him not standing with all the other dudes during the processional and then kinda jump in line when he’s done playing?
I mean, I can always have him play a song during the ceremony if it doesn’t work, but there is something so special to me about having him play while I walk the aisle.
Has anyone ever done something like this before? How did it work out for you?

i don’t think this would be awkward. can the piano be set up on the groom’s side of the aisle so he doesn’t have to walk all the way around?
any potential awkwardness would be way offset by how absolutely sweet it is to have your brother playing the processional!

I was in a wedding where a bridesmaid played the harp while the bride walked down. tHE Bridesmaid or Best Man walked down the aisle and stood in the front for a while, but when the last couple was walking up she slipped away and then when the bride was at the front she waited until the priest said his prayer and then came back to the pew, no one seemed to notice, I think I only knew because of the rehearsal! No one really stays focused on the front anyway because they are all waiting for the BRIDE!

I think it would be great and no one would look strangely upon it at all!

i think this is a great idea. i agree with @kitzy: i think it will work out beautifully with the piano set up on the groomsmen’s side so that your brother will be able to get to it easily.

Thanks ladies! I did some venue stalking last night and I found a photo where the piano is set up on groom’s side. Score!!
@MrsPinkPeony: That is exactly how I’d like it to happen! Perfect!
Thanks again, I’m so happy that my little bro will be playing the piano for me, I just know that I’m going to be a weepy mess. 🙂
