As I understand it, one song is used for the bridesmaids/parents/whoever and then a seperate song is supposed to be used for the bride. Is this necessary? Can we just use one song for all, provided it’s long enough?
After a lot of effort, we have only found one song that we’d like to use. We’re very much struggling with adding a second one. I’d like to just mark this task (of choosing music) as complete and move on to other things.
If it matters, here is our processional:
Maid/Matron of Honor
Bridesmaid or Best Man

If the song is long enough and you like the whole thing I don’t see why not. We considered that too but ended up finding two songs we liked.

@vess5: I only used one song for my entire processional, including me. I loved it because there was a big crescendo/ climax when the back doors opened and I came down the aisle. IMO, having more than one song just draws it out more.

@Kit_Kath: Great, thanks for responding!
@MrsSparkle10: Thank you! The song we like has some great changes & peaks in it. It could work out very nicely depending on timing, I guess we’ll find out at rehearsal! Even if the changes don’t match up perfectly I think the song will still work great.

@vess5: I plan on having one song for the bridal party/family and then switch to another song for me…so I don’t think it would be any different if you did it all with one song!

I’d never heard of using more than one song before I joined WB. But then in the UK, the traditional order is : bride (and her father if he is accompanying her), then bridesmaids. That’s it. The other parents, groom and best man wait at the front (there are no groomsmen). So take my opinion with a pinch of salt if it’s very different to what you’re used to. 🙂

We had just one song. I feel like it’s kind of strange to stop and start music during the processional.
