Email the site and ask them how long the aisle is. then.. measure out this distance in your backyard sidewalk, somewhere and walk it.. see how many steps it is…. play your song and see how long it takes you to walk that many steps to the song “beat’ or however you want to do that

Generally It doesn’t take as long as you think to walk the aisle so you may very well be able to use the same song.

You can use a CD player or Ipod but you want to make sure that you have  a set up loud enough (ask how big the place is) AND someone to “man” it.

YOu can recreate your ceremony ANYwhere as long as you have the dimensions and song counts!

You most certainly don’t HAVE to have someone seat the guests but we’ve decided to for our approx 200 person wedding… moreso b/c the ushers/usherette we’ve asked we really wanted apart of the wedding.. OH… and you’ll probably need atleast 2 to open the doors of the church.. if it’s anthing like mine.

I hope this eases you some…. =)

Oh and you can use WHATEVER kind of music you want! Make you’re wedding YOU!

Your son could definitely do the doors… and the aisle runner isn’t a neccessity.. our church has a carpeted aisle.. but we’re still considering one.

I think for that few of guests an ipod w/ speakers would suffice. We’re considering a set up where we can hook up our laptop to a stereo that would be louder.

Can the harpist play the Ramones song?  I’m a harpist and I’ve played Nirvana, Blue Oyster Cult, Beatles, Smashing Pumpkins and Johnny Cash at weddings, to name a few. I don’t know that Ramones song so I can’t offer any specific advice.  You could create possibly a medley of the two….I’ve combined Canon in D with other songs before. 


It doesn’t take too long to walk up the aisle and back.  I once had a bride who wanted to walk in to “Ave Maria” and I ended up having to edit out the whole middle section since she had a very short walk.
