Most brides opt for something different for themselves as opposed to the rest of the processional to break things up and add drama to the moment of their entrance.  However there is no actual rule and you could simply use the same song with the rest of your party.  If you’re stuck you might try posting some of your other music selections and perhaps someone could recommend something complimentary for your entrance.

Not at all. We had a small wedding, wedding party and aisle. I was originally going to do different songs the traditional way. After viewing a couple different processionals and talking to my planner I realized this was unnecessary. It’s not like if the song doesn’t change they won’t know you’re about to walk down. How we did it was that the bridal party started walking to the song, when it was time for me to walk there was a pause for a few seconds so they knew it was about that time and then I appeared. This helped us because more of the song I really liked was what was played.

I used the same song for everybody.  I used Pachabel’s canon and my walk started just as the music started to swell.  Outdoor ceremony though, so everybody saw me coming a mile away.
