I wrote all the songs I chose out on paper with titles/ artists names and when to play them. I gave two copies to Ana. (one for her and the other for her to hand to the technician. I had asked my brother (best man) to put all the songs (all the FULL songs) on a cd for us to give to the tech but OOPS!!! my brother forgot the cd at home!!! I was just a little upset for about a minute and then he said that he had them all on his ipod so it was no biggie. I asked my brother to go down early before the ceremony just to make sure the sound technician knew what was what and it turns out that he was already prepared without even using the ipod. I would suggest to definitely bring a cd or ipod with your full songs on it preferably in order just as a backup, but for me, he was great!! He was perfectly on cue....I could hear the music being played as I watched the girls walk down the aisle and then he faded into the beginning of my song as my dad and I walked down. He always faded in and out of the songs so they weren't choppy at all. So to answer your question....he played the songs from the beginning and just went from there. There was never an awkward moment.
My tip....I would give him a CD with the full songs. If you make it too complicated, there's room for errors.
I'll share my songs if you're interested....
