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.
