girls, i have a problem! i really want to walk down the aisle to canon in D but i’m not sure if i can do this because my wedding party is so small. we have 1 Maid/Matron of Honor and 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man and maybe a ringer bearer… would it be really lame if the whole procession walked down the aisle to canon in D or is the music supposed to change when the bride makes her entrance?

It’s up to you. I told the organist to play whatever music while the people filed in and start Canon in D while my bridesmaids walked in. Then she started over when I walked in because I always wanted to enter to the beginning of it.

I’m in the same position as you, only 2 in the wedding party. Your musician should be able to simply end the processional music at a point that makes sense. It is easier if the music is instrumental. I am processing to Canon D and my wedding party will walk to something else.
At least this is the plan. 🙂

i think we’re going to have someone play acoustic guitar while people are being seated + hanging out waiting for the ceremony to start. he will probably play some acoustic versions of songs like, here comes the sun, can’t help falling in love, etc… the aisle is super long so i guess i could have 1 song for the processional and then he could start canon in d when i walk out… (or as @Lindsay05: said, i could just have him start over when i walk out!) the logistics of planning this hurts my brain!

Sure, you can walk to the same thing as your wedding party. Maybe just ask them to crank up the volume, or if it’s musicians to add some more detail and fullness when you come in.
I’m not going to have a change of music when I come. The music I have natural rises and gets louder as it plays so I’m just going to stick with that.
