My two songs are pretty different but I think they work for the feel I want for each part. “I WILL”- the Beatles for party processional and Eastmountainsouth “So Are You to Me” for me….

My only issue is my song is longer than I need and has kinda left me in a pickle….

Back to your issue though….. you certainly don’t HAVE to pick 2 songs. I think the point is more just so you stand out. =)

My brother is playing his guitar for our ceremony, and I really like one song that I picked out so I was thinking about just having him pause for a moment between the wedding party and myself, to let everyone know that the bride is coming, and then continuing with the same song.

my two songs are different, but both within a similar sort of religious genre. i just love them both and had it in my mind that they would both play. i think it is really up to you. one song would work great as well. it is nice to have a pause before the bride comes out though. a little dramatic build!

I think it only HAS to be what you and your Fiance like best. 🙂 My 3 bridesmaids and I are walking to the same song (Yellow by Vitamin String Quartet).

I think it’s fine to walk to the same song, but there is an element of drama when the song changes, everyone stands, and it’s the bride’s turn to walk down the aisle.

It doesn’t have to be awkward to change songs, they don’t have to go together.  One way to smooth the transition is if both songs are in the same medium (like on piano or strings).

Congrats!
