When I got to the MP, they gave me a little sheet to fill out - here was what they needed...
1 - Bridal Party Entrance - you'll want to make sure this is long enough to cover your peeps getting into the gazebo. If not, they will start it over again from the beginning.
2 - Bridal March - Same deal as the first. They don't start this song until you get out of the carriage and are standing at the head of the walkway - at least that's how mine was.
3 - Signatures - This will want to be your longest song. This definitely takes 4 to 5 minutes. We used the Over the Rainbow song from the 50 First Dates soundtrack. There are multiple copies of the certificate and you, your husband, and each of your witnesses (4) have to sign all of them, then you have to thumbprint all of them.
4 - Kiss - This can be a shorter song. It's for your first kiss and the champagne toast. Mostly this is a pictures time.
5 - Recessional - I think this can also be shorter. I don't even know if we played our whole song - we all walked out, did the petal toss, then peaced out.
I also had a prelude song I asked them to play and they did. I didn't know I was supposed to have the kiss song, so they just played the prelude song again.
I hope this helps a little bit!!!
