Different songs for each persons?

Recommended Posts

So my wedding is in 3 weeks....i am trying to figure out if i should have a different song being played for each person walking down the aisle...( ex: One song for groomsmen, groom, bridemaids, bride) or should i just have one song as it will only take about 30 secs to a minute to get down the aisle....

Not sure if it will sound stupid just stopping in the middle of a song and going to a next one.

I spose you could fade it, but maybe it will take longer to get down or something....hmmm what to do./..

what did u do??

TIA!

I was in a wedding last year where they did that. Well it wasnt for when we were walking down the aisle but it was when we were introduced at the reception. There were 8 pairs (bmaid/groomsman), the parents of the bride, the parents of the groom, and the bride/groom. We all got to pick our own song and then do our own little entrance to it.. It was so awesome, everyone loved it and really showed everyones personalities off! So if thats any indication, that was 11 dif songs, I am sure you would be fine for four different ones for the ceremony!

usually, there is one song for the entrance of the groom, groomsmen and bridesmaids, and then another song for the entrance of the bride - fading short songs during the ceremony entrance would probably sound too choppy or forced - it's different for upbeat songs during the grand entrance - hope that helps!

Just personal opinion here..I think it's a tad too much.

 

One song for the groomsmen/groom, a song for the bridesmaids including maid/matron of honor, then a song for the bride's entrance. Thats three songs in the span of probably about five minutes total. lol..more than enough.

I agree, this is what we did too.

i think it would be too much as well. kinda like an nba game where they play the signature song of each starter when they are introduced on the starting lineup wink.gif

 

actually that might be a fun idea now that i put it that way! but i think maybe more suited for the reception, not ceremony. esp seeing as how you've got someone working the cd player or whatever who probably might not be an english speaking individual. it might get kind of complicated to explain all that, kwim?

I agree.. that is what we are going to do as well. Or we may even just do one song for the bridal party total and then one song for my entrance.

Unless you are doing a SUPER casual ceremony.... then I say, go for it. Have people pick songs and do their own entrances. It could be fun! smile29.gif

i've only seen this for the reception entrance. i think it's too much for a ceremony, considering that each person is probably only walking for less than a minute.

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
