1 song or 2 - Walking down the aisle...

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out if bridesmaids and myself should walk down the aisle to the same song or not. 5 bridesmaids and myself.

I was thinking 2 songs... but what happens when the bridesmaid have all walked down, and the song is still going... do they just stop it? And then it will only take me like... a minute to walk down... then the song gets cut off again?

i have been listenening to songs, timing myself walking down the hallway. ARGH I am sooo confused!

The songs will most likely have words (i have not chosen the song/s yet) so maybe 1 song is better to avoid cutting off 2 songs? What is everyone else doing...

1 song or 2?

HELP!

if you are choosing a song with words, i say probably one song. for me, i am going to have 2 songs, because i will be playing classical pieces, one for the bridesmaids and then another for myself to distinguish between them and me.

If you are having words you should make sure you tell your WC that. Find out how long the song(s) are that you are playing and then try to time it to the music. It might be easier to go with some classical pieces (that's what I did) And they faded it in and out so it wasn't an ubrupt(sp?) stop.

We did one song, it was over 5 minutes long. It had words and the words are so very special to me that I wanted them all to play. As fate would have it the last note played as I arrived at the alter....love when things unexpectedly work out like that!

i think 2 were played. one classical sounding piece for the bms, gms, and dh w/ his parents, and something bridal for me. to be honest, no one even noticed, including me..

I think i want two songs.. I want the girls to walk down to Somewhere over the rainbow (the beachy one from 50 first dates) and for me I was going to walk down to oh crap I forgot waht i was going to walk down too... maybe just the traditional Cannan D.. or maybe I will switch that.. girls down on Cannon D and me.. somewhere over the rainbow.. hmm.. great!

I plan on doing 2. I think the DC aisle is pretty long so to get the ring bearer, two flower girls, and MOH down to one song then my dad and I to another. Plus they are both very important songs to us.

2 for us as well. I'm going to work with the timing with the dj, so that the bridal party entrance song is allowed to play out completely by the time the last girl comes down. Then my song which will likely be shortened a bit...but you can fade out a song after any chorus so that it sounds natural...just a matter of timing. I like the idea of having my own song, and since I couldn't make up my mind and settle on just one, this is better.

Just one song - my brother is a terrific trumpet player, so he's playing Trumpet Voluntary as I walk down the aisle. Lucky for me he's musically inclined, so he's putting together a special version just for me. Our MOH and BM will already be at the altar along with FI, so I just needed a song for me and my dad.

I think we are going to go with two as well. Probably a Mexican guitar type of instrumental song.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
