    We're only having one song for the processional, "Canon in D". I want to walk down the aisle at the 2 minute mark and we have a small wedding party, so it should work out perfectly!

    We had two songs - Wildflowers by Tom Petty for the parents and bridal party and then Marry Me acoustic by Train for us.

    We'll have two. The groomsmen will already be standing up with FH. The girls will walk in to the acoustic version of "Can't Help Falling in Love" and I'll walk in to "Canon in D." Our DJ's told us about this band called Brooklyn Duo and they are amazing, so both of those songs will be their version.

    We are debating this right now! The song we chose should be JUST long enough for the entire bridal party to walk to. But we鈥檙e debating whether we should chance cutting it so close, or if we should choose an additional song for the bride to walk to.

    That will be beautiful. We have a soloist singing this song for Our presentation of gifts to Mary. Our soloist has an amazing voice as she used to sing Opera and is a professor of music at a college.

    Two. We didn't have a bridal party but had our own songs.

    His was Beautiful Day by U2 (the piano/cello version)

    Mine was the instrumental verion of Paradise by Coldplay

    I'm not really sure....we have a very small wedding party, so maybe just one. Or maybe we'll play a song before that that segues well into our chosen song: Can't Help Falling in Love

    I鈥檓 leaning towards one song I really love it and want it for the wedding party and my entrance but it鈥檚 a big party so I think we鈥檒l do turning page by sleeping at last for the processional and turning page the instrumental for my entrance.

    Might only be just one song for me since we're doing an "elopement" package with our ceremony venue. We won't have a wedding party and all the attendees are family.

    3! "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban for the Grandparents & Parents, "When God Made You" by Newsong feat. Natalie Grant for the Bridal Party, and "I Get to Love You" by Ruelle for me! We have musicians singing and playing the cello, guitar, and piano to these.

    I don't have a clue on this one. We've planned all of the vendor aspects of the wedding out but haven't really thought much about the logistics of the day. I would guess two though?

    As I walk down the aisle "A Love Unreal" by Black Label Society will play, because that is the song my FH sent me when he yes to my proposal. Smiley heart

    We'll probably just have one. We don't have a big wedding party or a particularly long aisle so I'm worried switching songs mid-processional would sound clunky.
