Hey everyone, i’m confused as to how many different songs should be played when the bridal party is walking in–i’ve heard of there being a different song for: groom coming in, bridesmaids & groomsmen coming in, and bride & father coming in. How is there enough time to play even pieces of 2 or 3 different songs, especially since it only takes 10 seconds to walk down the aisle? Has anyone had experience with this, and isnt it awkward to switch up songs? Is one 3 minute song long enough for everybody?

I am having 2 songs. 1 for groom with his parents, grandparents & bridal party (3 groups of Bridesmaid or Best Man & Groomsmen,then best man, each Maid/Matron of Honor is walking separately-2 of them) … and another 1 for flower girl, ring bearer, my dad, mom and I. We are planning an outdoor ceremony. So the walk from the building to ceremony is part of the walk don the aisle. Also we have 3 sets of grandparents walking… 2 pairs which walk fairly slow. I’m hoping they all fit down the aisle + bridal party on the first song.
Im going to have to time it at the rehearsal just to make sure, but yes 2 songs are needed for us.
In total we will have 10 groups (18 people) to the first song and then a separate song for my entrance… only because I think we will need a 2nd song.

MrsBtoBe14: It probably mostly depends on the size of your party and the length of your aisle. I’ll be using A Thousand Years for the parents, groom and bridal party because like you said it’s long enough for everyone. The song will only change for when I walk down the aisle.
