Can you go to your venue, walk down the aisle and get an idea?

There is no standard way that this happens, so whatever you want is fine.

A few notes: I don’t think the guests care too much about how long the BMS/kids are walking. They are most excited to see you! I don’t know how many people are in your wedding party, but just keep in mind that folks may be bored if this is too long (like more then 2 minutes). 

Usually, I do see that the aisle is clear before the bride starts to walk, so you should time for that too.

Are you walking to the same song as them? It would be easier if the DJ could just switch the song for your walk, and it’s easier for guests because they know that it’s your turn. Usually when guests see the kids walk and the aisle clear, they just know!

Who is in charge of the music?  I’m with neontl, if you have a DJ get them to change the song.  Because our aisle was so long and people walked so slowly, we actually ended up playing their processional music TWICE!  You don’t want people running down the aisle, and you also don’t want them waiting forever to get to your song.  It’s best if you can get someone to just fade out their music and start yours.

Don’t sweat it…that’s what rehearsals are for.  Just make sure you have a “things I want to accomplish at the rehearsal” list so that you don’t forget to check it out in the excitement.

My 2 Maid/Matron of Honor, 1 brother of honor, 3 flower girls, and myself are all walking down to the same song.  I’m not going to time it out…I’m just going to ask the DJ to fade it out when I get to the alter.
