    I sprinted lol. I think it took like 20 seconds. It was just the two of us and we didn't have any music. We just wanted to hear the ocean and birds when we saw each other for the first time. It was perfect. Anyhoo..I would just have the wedding coordinator or someone fade the music when you reach the alter so you don't have to worry about timing your walk on top of everything else.

      By the time I got to the beach (yes I was late - the spa took forever), it didn't take long at all. I think I was down the isle is less than a minute.
      I heard the music (Bob Marley) start and just went. I thought I was going to make it down the aisle without crying, but I looked at my now husband's friends and he was a blubbering idiot. So I of course lost it.

        I haven't done it yet, but I can't imagine it will take too long cause when I visited the sit, the aisle didn't seem too long to walk up! HA!
        We have a guitar trio that will play.

        What song are you going to pick, Twinkle?

          5 minutes & 35 seconds :)

          That was for my SIL, flower girl, ring bearer, 4 BMs, 3 GMs, MOH, and my father and I.

            *lol* usually you see the women cry not the men. Isn't that sweet?

              Less than a minute. It goes quicker than you think.

                I would guess it took me 30 seconds to a minute. The girls went first to the same song (canon in D). I couldn't see them because I was hidden behind the restaurant. I kept asking my Dad "what's taking so long" and he was peeking to see and he was like "nothing, it's just a long aisle!" It probably only took them 30 seconds or so each but the coordinator waited until my sister was all teh way there before starting my SIL (I thought my SIL was going to start when my sister was like halfway there or soemthing, but really, it didn't matter). So that makes a difference too, whether the people are walking the whole way alone, or whether you have the next people start right behind or a little ways behind the previous ones.

                So for my two bridesmaids and me at let's say 30 seconds - 1 minute each I guess than it took like 2-3 minutes total.

                I agree that fading the song is the easiest. Waiting at the front more than like 20 seconds for the song to end would be awkward I think.

                  Great question! I was wondering the same thing. There will only be my MOH and myself walking down the aisle and I chose "How Beautiful" by Twilia Paris. It's about 4 minutes and I figure that's enought time for both of us to walk down. I will have to remember to ask the WC to "fade" the song out
