You are exactly right,
I played 5 songs prior to the ceremony starting but my husband says that the last song, which was waiting on a woman played 3 times so you could easily do 6 songs prior to the ceremony. Then I played one song for my mothers and bridesmaid, then one for me and my dad. Then had our recessional song. Some brides have one if they are doing a sand ceremony its up to you. The video company will then use that cd of music for your video its perfect! Also make sure you make separate cd's for ceremony, reception etc. My sister did all the music and it was perfect the sound tech that works the sound system did it all perfect not a complaint.

- have ~5 songs played while guests are being seated (so that will cover ~15 minutes before the ceremony gets started)
- have 1 song for the entrance of mothers, bridemaids, flower girl (etc.) - I only have 1 bridemaid so 1 song will be enough for me
- have 1 song for the bride's entrance (this song will likely not play through entirely)
- have 1 song for the recessional
Past brides: does that sound about right?
ammorris17 - There are a few different threads on what brides have selected for their songs.
