    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.
