I’m sure this is considered a stupid question, but I can’t find anything telling me the best way to do this or wht the norm is. Does the same song play when the mothers enter and then the BMs walk to that or do you have different songs for the seating of the mothers and the Bridesmaid or Best Man processional?

I’m just using one song for everyone else and one song for me. I feel like it would be awkward to have so many song changes, since for me, seating the mothers will take about thirty seconds and then the rest of the processional is mayyyyybe two minutes, if that. If you have a lot of parents and grandparents and a large bridal party, you may want different music. So there’s no hard and fast rule; it just depends how many song changes you want and whether you think the transitions are going to be smooth fades or rough like shoes in the dryer (because let’s be honest, if cousin Jim is changing songs on the iPod for the ceremony music, the odds are greatly in favor of shoes in the dryer!).
I also figure the fewer the song changes, the less likely something will go wrong and the Maid/Matron of Honor will be walking down the aisle to the bridal march or something!

I’m doing the same song for them, Canon in D. Then Trumpet Voluntary (Prince of Denmark March) for me. I’m having a Catholic mass ceremony.

Thanks for the tips. We have 4 mothers to seat and a bridal party of 8 (which I feel like is huge but that’s for another thread…) so I don’t know which way that will work better. I feel like even that could all be done to one song. I guess I feel like it’s a more precise start to the ceremony when the BMs have their own song. But I don’t want it to be all choppy and there be too many songs.
