I suspect no one will realize the bridesmaids are walking down until they are halfway down the asle.  If you are ok with that, then go for it.  But I do think it will be confusing.  At least put it clearly in the program so people may see it!

I don’t see how it would be confusing. I’ve never been to a weddiwhew here anyone was announced before they walked down the aisle and I’ve been to a lot of weddings! It’sbeery common.

I personally am usingalone song for parents and wedding party and haven’t been told boo by anyone about it.

We did it, but our song was way longer. I’m not sure if people found it confusing, but really, if they were paying attention they should have been fine.

@SteidaBega:  My answer remains the same. 🙂 Just leave it. It actually makes MORE sense since you are outside because guests will see the wedding party more during the seating, so why not just go ahead? It’s really not a big deal.

If you really WANT to pause it, go ahead. It’s possible that that’s one of the things our vendor will forget to do. (Like in ours, our recessional music didn’t start until we were halfway back down the aisle. Lol. Oh well.)

@SteidaBega:  I would personally be like, “why is there and awkward pause?” Just have them walk, no one will be confused.

never occurred to me to use more than one song!  we were just planning on using one song for family entrances and bridal party processional.

@SteidaBega:  I just started up Pachabel’s canon as soon as the parents came down and used it straight up to when I arrived at the altar.  I certainly don’t think anybody was confused!  If anything, have your first bridesmaid hold until a natural change or swell in the music and go from there.
