I have 4 bridesmaids, 1 junior bridesmaid and a flowergirl/ring bearer. The distance from the doors to the alter is 35 feet. The starting point in the song for the Maid/Matron of Honor to go is :26. There is a break in the song at 1:30 where the tempo changes and I would like to start my walk. The question is, do you think that 1 minute and 4 seconds is enough time for 6 people (the Flower Girl and Ring Bearer would walk together) to get down a 35 foot aisle? I know people usually walk faster than they’re supposed to, and since it’s not a long drawn out section of music, I would rather have them finish sooner than later. Do you ladies think it can be done or am I just asking for an epic fail?

msfreemis: This may be something to ask your dj?? We are doing 2 different songs but our dj is just fading them out/ in

msfreemis: Sorry- also this sounds pretty fast. Is there any way you can try it?

The bridemaids won’t have any problems with that amount of time, but flower girls can be unpredictable. What if she gets shy and refuses to walk? Or takes her job scattering flowers very seriously and takes her time to do it right? I’ve seen both. Of course it depends on her age, and you know her, while I do not. Really, the only thing to do is test it, and then be flexible if it doesn’t go according to plan.

This is just one of the reasons why live music is really preferable to electronic music.
When you consider what you’re paying for other aspects of your wedding, the cost of real, living music is really not a major saving, especially since it will always be associated with the earliest moments of your ceremony.
Get thee to the closest college that has a music department, and you will find a live guitarist or violinistor keyboard player or harpist who will provide music unique to your setting for a reasonable price.
Trying to deal with electronic music is really a very second choice. While you will get compliments on live music, you will never hear anyone say “Wow, your iPad really sounded great for the Processional”.
Yes, I AM a wedding musician! 🙂 hope your ceremony is perfect!
