I would do that last option, to have her walk down to the same song, after your parents have seated.  Changing the song just for a short time probably wouldn’t work out, the lyrics would be cut off pretty quickly.

I would probably have her come down in the same song as your parents…that’s just too many songs in too short of a time!

Oh!  That changes things a lil bit!  🙂  I still like the fluidity of having just a couple songs play out in that short amount of time.  Especially with a live musician, it’ll sound really pretty.

We had only one attendant each also.  We played a song for the mother’s walking down, then another song for the officiant/groom/BM walking down, then another song for my Maid/Matron of Honor walking, then my song!  So there was always a different song playing for each person’s walk down the isle.

I agree – have your Maid/Matron of Honor enter to the same song as the families.  It gets very choppy to have several brief snippets of songs.  It also makes it easier for the musician to time the music correctly!

Another alternative to think about would be to have everyone in the processional other than you come down to the same song, then have it switch to another one for you.  We also had only two attendants total.  The processional was a) the rabbi, b) the dude of honor, c) the maid of honor, and d) the two of us, walking together.  Thus, the processional was relatively long, even with only two attendants.
