How long did it take you to get down the aisle?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering for you married ladies, how long did it take you to get down the wedding aisle (if you can remember,lol)? I mean, I know you dont know the exact timing, but can you give me an estimate. Like, how long was your wedding song? I am trying to pick a song to walk down the aisle to, but I dont want it to be too long or too short. If the song was a long song, and you made it down the aisle before the song was over, did you just stand there until the song played out or did someone just stop the song?

 

I remember going to a wedding and the bride walked very fast down the aisle and stood at the altar doing nothing for what seemed like 5 minutes before the song ended. All the guests were a little confused. I know I'm going to be tremendously nervous! So, I'm trying to avoid looking like an idiot as much as possible,lol! Please let me know if I'm not making much sense. huh.gif TIA :~)

hmm good question, my song was not too long, so maybe 2-3 minutes max, but that includes my parents kissing me and handing me over.

I have no idea, it is a blur for me, I had a trio play live music, it was beautiful. The trio walked behind me, so when I stopped walking they stopped playingrockon.gif

LOL!

 

I totally didn't think of that! I need to check with the coordinator to see how long the aisle is and if we should use the same song for the bridal party & me.

 

Thanks for the heads up. I'd also prefer to not look like an idiot!

I think it depends on the song. If it is instrumental I sure you could just fade it out without anyone knowing the difference. As for songs with lyrics it might sound funny fading out in the middle of it. 2-3 sounds like a good plan I guess it also depends on your walk. Some resorts I know have a really long way to walk.

Wow, good question. I have no idea how long it took me either! However, like Kelly, I had a trio playing. I have no idea what they played, how long it was or anything. Complete oblivion on that one (seems to be a common theme here).

Oh my goodness- like 5 secs. I have no idea and I think I just flew up there. I had "Bittersweet Symphony" as my song and I had planned on the beginning instrumental section being long enough. Sure enough, I believe it was. Once I get the video back, I will let you know how long it took me.

Not very long once I got started, maybe a minute, two tops. It was a little rocky starting though, I kept listening for my music to start. I eventually realized that the cd player either wasn't working, or the ocean was drowning out the song, and kept on going.

I'm concerned about this too. We are all (me flower girl/ring bearer and 2 BM's) walking down to one song. It is a 5 or 6 minute song though so I'm hoping 1.we will have enough time, I think we will and 2. The DJ can just fade it out once I'm at the alter.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
