you shouldn't have to stress about cutting or fading the songs in or out - they'll have someone working the sound system who will do that for you.
if you want the entire song to play, then slow the walks. if you're ok with it fading out, then they can handle that too!
are you bringing your own iPod for the ceremony music?
Sounds like we have our bases covered- you are going in May, I'm in June and I read somewhere else of another bride going in July! So between us we should be able to get questions answered- even if we forget to ask when we are there!!
The music is really important to me, and im not good enough at blending music to fade out songs between one and another- so Im hoping I can find a way to make the processional as LOONNNNNNNG as possible (HAHA Maybe I will start walking from the lobby!) We are planning on using songs that mean something to us (with lyrics) so cutting it off halfway through will seem odd I think! Hoping I can make it work- or come up with an unconventional route to the altar if necessary! (give all those hanging out at the pool something to look at HAHA)
I have 4 bridesmaids, but I want my sons (7 year identical twins) to go out with the men, but then walk back up the aisle to come get me and bring me to the altar... they will walk me down as it's my second wedding and my Dad got the honor last time.
