    This was my concern too since I only had my Maid of Honor, no other attendants.  I used Angel by Akon and downloaded free music editing software and shortened the song to 1 1/2 minutes.  Using the software allows you to fade the music out, join pieces of music together if you want, take out lyrics, etc.  It worked perfectly for me and by having the song fade out no one was able to tell that it abruptly stopped.

      Food for thought - are you going to have music playing while your guests are arriving?  If so, a bit of one song before you start wont seem out of place, if not, think of it as building suspense.  If you have a small number of people walking down before you, break up the song between them.  Depending how long your walk is take a double count step (step, 1, 2, step, 1, 2) to help slow things down.  You could also have your parents start the song for you with your wedding party after if the breaks are too long between each person.  I am using Look At Me by Carrie Underwood and we had to change where the groom and I stand because the song was longer than the people walking, so know we are taking a slight detour around our guests (this wont work in a straight isle fashion) and the song will be finishing as I get to the stage.  Have a trial run with everyone there while the music is playing, someone may come up with the answer you need on the spot.  Congrats ladies and I wish you all many happy years!
