Is it strange for the Bridesmaid or Best Man and bride to walk down to the same song? I am only having 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man and want to walk down to the instrumental of “Two Is Better Than One”…I think it’s kinda pointless to have 2 different songs for only 3 of us? Is that strange? Also, do the Groomsmen and groom come down the aisle at the beginning with their own song (the last wedding I went to was like 7 years ago)

Not strange at all. When I was my friend’s Maid/Matron of Honor two years ago, we both walked to Canon in D.

My Maid/Matron of Honor, Bridesmaid or Best Man, flower girls, ring bearer and I walked down the aisle to one song, Canon in D from Wedding Rock Anthems. I was concerned that the children (all 3 years old) would either walk fast or slow. I didn’t want to take the chance that I’d miss my que if we had a seperate song for me.
Usually the groom, best man and or groomsman enter from the side after the officient. I’ve also seen them walk down the aisle or even the groom escorting his mother to her seat. It’s your wedding and you can have anything you want.

I used that song for my first dance! Love it!
I think that it totally works, but if there’s a peak moment in the song that is when the bride should come out. My entire processional was to an instrumental version of Love Story and I walked out when it gets to the “Marry me Juliet” part of the song. Hmm…going through your song now searching for the ‘moment’. Maybe around 3:10, when the last chorus kicks in? To me that seems like the moment for the bride to walk out.

We’re using Jon Schmidt’s cover of “Love Story”. We have a very small party and a short aisle, so it makes no sense to do two songs for us.

In my sisters wedding, everyone (bride, groom, minister, etc.) walked down to the same song. It was lovely and kept it uniform and nice. I don’t know why people want multiple songs?? I’m planning only one song for everyone to walk down the aisle to in my wedding.

yes, pretty normal.that’s what I plan to do.
But traditionally the groom and best men are already at the front, they don’t do the processional.

We are only going to do one song. I don’t think it is odd.
And if the men aren’t walking with the women, they usually come in off the side with the pastor.

My three bridesmaids walked down to the same song as me. It was a song that started out very calm and slow, and when I walked in it peaked and went into full instrumental. It was really beautiful and everyone really liked it.

I think I’ll just have one, I want my cousins to sing a duet of “God Bless the Broken Road.”

We all (three bridesmaids & then me) walked down to one instrumental song. 🙂

I’m doing just one, but we’re having a 50 person wedding so our aisle will be small…

@PrincessNali: And the Winner Is by Devotchka. It is the theme song from one of my favorite movies, Little Miss Sunshine.
