Mothers processional song?
Do the mothers (of the bride, groom & step moms) walk down the aisle to the same song as the bridal party? Or do you continue to prelude music while the moms are walking down? I have my stepmother walking first, then the groom's mom (lighting a taper for the unity candle), then my mom (lighting the other taper for the unity candle)...any help would be great!

You can choose to have the mothers walk during the prelude music, with a special song, or with the bridal party. Because the mothers are lighting candles, you may want a song just for them. If you have a wedding coordinator, they will help with timing. If you don't, make sure that there is a good cue to change the music when the mothers are ready. Also, have the bridal party lined up before the mothers begin so that there is no time between songs. Finally, if you are getting married in a church, make sure to check with them about how your processional will work. They may have certain 'rules' about how a processional works in that particular church.

Good luck with your planning!

a seperate song is played for the moms before the wedding party walks the aisle. It can be the prelude or a song of your choosing.
If moms are lighting the tapers, I'd have them both walk together and do this, it looks very pretty to have both families at the same time starting the candles ceremony.
