    We had two songs. First song- 3 women were escorted, then the GMs came back, walked up the aisle with minister and Darling Husband. Then my two MOHs walked in, and we had plenty of time left over. Dad & I walked to song #2.

    I went to my venue to check how long it took me to walk down the aisle- might be worth doing that. You also could have the bridesmaids walk in two at a time. Could someone besides your brother escort the moms?

    We had three songs… one for the minister and moms/parents “Mamas Song” by Carrie Underwood; the bridemaids and groomsmen waited until the next song started, “Marry Me” by Train, the flower girls and ring bearer also walked to this song. The last song was Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years”… for my dad and I. they did cut it early.

    Ah, family! 

    I also walked to A Thousand Years, but it was the instrumental version by Vitamin String Quartet-DJ just played a minute, which we’d figured out beforehand.

    I guess it really depends how long your aisle is/how long you need per person. If you do a instrumental song, your DJ might be able to loop it, or if you have musicians, they can figure out where to repeat/adjust as needed.
