We are having a smallish outdoor ceremony, no musicians, no deejay, just speakers hooked up to the netbook. I am going to walk down to VSQ’s cover of Yellow. When should the music stop? Should it stop as soon as I reach the altar? Or should we pace it so that the song ends at a good spot when we reach the altar? For those of you who used a non traditional song on an ipod or with a deejay, how/when did your song stop? Thanks

Even with more traditional music, you want to let the music reach the end of a phrase (or verse) before cutting it off. You can just stand there and smile for a moment while you wait for it to reach a good spot. It will probably help to pace yourself down the aisle too, but I don’t think you’ll want to be worrying about that at the time when you’re basking in the beginning of your ceremony!

We used an mp3 player, speakers, and had a non-traditional song. We tried to pace our wedding party to it so the crescendo was when I walked in. Then the song just got softer and off after I reached the alter and hugged/kissed parents and stuff. No one will notice. I fussed about it and totally didn’t pay attention day of.

@hotwings: so did you walk down to the same song as the others? The only ones walking down the aisle will be the groom escorting his mom, the ringbearer, two flower girls and then myself with my parents.
