I am planning on the parents, bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girl, and myself (not in that order) walking down to one song that lasts 5 minutes…I was just reading another thread about song entrances, and most girl are using one for their bridesmaids and then another for themselves. Is having only 1 song weird? I envision how I want it to go, even the very second I want to walk out, and I believe that a 5 minute song should be long enough. I’m having a beach wedding, so it’s technically not as formal of a wedding as usual. Is 5 minutes enough time?

Plenty of time, and no I dont think it’s weird per se. People normally change it for bride/groom to stand out more.

I don’t think it’s weird, but I don’t think there is as much dramatic effect if you all use the same song. The changing of the song is also a cue for everyone to stand and better announces your arrival.

i had one song that was about 5 mins! it worked well! two songs can seem disjointed! It depends on the music! x

mdcmod: I had one song and it worked just fine. It was about 4-5 minutes and it still had to be faded out before the end of the song.
No one commented that it was strange or unusal.

mdcmod: I don’t think its “weird” but I do think your moment may be missed if you just start walking in without pause after everyone else. People are expecting a break in music then your grand entrance.

I had one song for the bridal party and myself. My pastor was able to get everyone’s attention to ride when I was about to walk down the aisle so nobody missed the moment.

My cousin will be playing piano and I want to go down with two so I canhave the traditional wedding march. If you love it, there’s your answer. Go for it 🙂

I’ve never been to a wedding that had more than one song, but maybe it’s different in the UK. If you know what you want and it’s that song then have that song. I’m sure people will realise pretty quickly what’s going on when you appear

We only used one song and didn’t feel like anyone “missed the cue” or didn’t realize I was coming down the aisle… I was the one in white!

missjz: Yes, you’re right! I did, however, forget to mention that there actually is a break in the music, not a huge one, but enough to wear the music pauses long enough for everyone to stand and then starts again in a slower tone.

mdcmod: I thought I was going to do that for a long time, but while planning the wedding heard a second song that I really wanted to incorporate so I ended up having two songs. I don’t think one would be weird at all, espeically if the song shifts and you have a specific part you want to walk to 🙂
