It depends on how long your aisle is. I would say you should be able to fit all of those people in a 4:30 minute song. But maybe pick a different song for you to enter. 

We fit: my husband and the pastor, 1 set of grandparents, my parents, my husband’s parents, our maid of honor & best man and our bridesmaid and groomsmen in in a 3:11 song. And then I entered to a seperate song.

I also think it would be a good idea to play one song for family and another song for you and your bridesmaids.

I am having this issue too. I like the idea of playing one song for family and another for bridesmaid and myself, but just don’t want an extremly long ceremony. Do you think it would be okay to just use one song?

Can you go to your ceremony site and time yourself walking down? Then multiple by how many people or “sets” of people need to fit? 

That’s what I did when trying to figure out music choices – just walked from the starting point to where the end of the aisle is/would be, while timing it on my phone’s stopwatch. Then listen to the song to see.

You could always look into someone doing a mash up of two songs and have your song start further into the actual song, most DJs should be able to combine two songs so that they flow together nicely and will allow you to walk down to your favorite part of the song

I am only using one song for bridal party and bride entrance. I think having another song adds more time to the actual ceremony. I’m just thinking about my wedding quest and don’t want them to sit through an extremely long ceremony. That’s just me though. Everyone is different
