Ok, I feel like this is a stupid question, but bear with me. I will be walking down the isle with my father. I will be the only one in this “procession” since I have no bridal party (so nerve wracking). How slow does one walk?
I have a feeling I will be nervous, so I will want to walk as quickly as possible. However, I am playing a special song that I want to at least hear the first verse of before I get to the altar, so how do I walk without it being too slow or too fast? Help!

@BackyardLoveBird: Usually you’re told to walk down the aisle in a slow procession. If you want to slow it down so that your song plays you could walk likes so: step-together…pause, step-together…pause and so on. Does that make sense?

I thought so, but I was just wondering what other people do. You always do that step when you are a little kid, but I also wore a white towel on my head as a veil back then. LOL

In weddings that I’ve seen and been in, the bride (and FOB) just walk normally but slowly. You can use your rehearsal, if you have one, to time it exactly how you want it to go with the song.

Start the song before the doors open (if you’re in a church). And then after a few moments start walking down the aisle. Tell you father beforehand to help you walk slowly. Don’t go so slow that it looks awkward, but slow enough to see faces in the crowd. He can help slow you down I’m sure. 🙂
