Wedding party walking to the same song as bride

Is it weird to have the wedding party walk to the same song as me during the ceremony? I want as much of the song to play as possible and we have a fairly short wedding party. It’ll only be our parents, my one bridesmaid, my maid of honor and me

    I kinda think that it is a bit odd to have others walk down to the aisle with the same song that you are supposed to.
    I think maybe you should have an instrumental song played for them to walk down to. Then when it comes time for you, the song should start playing, guests rise, in which you then become visible to everyone, take a moment to stand there briefly, then proceed to walk down the aisle, in which you still achieve your goal of having as much of the song played as possible.

    I think you should do what works for you! If you have enough of the song to get everyone down, then go for it!

    I'm doing this as well and also have an almost non-existent wedding party. Is there like a bridge or a break in the song that could maybe signal your arrival?

    Our song is the Ice Dance song from Edward Scissorhands and there's a part towards the end that sounds a little different than the rest of the song. Then you can time your walk during that specific part

    I plan to do the same. I will have a small bridal party, and there’s a part at the end of the second verse where the music crescendos and the lyrics say “I love you!”. I want the doors to open for me as that plays and I think it will be so beautiful. There would be no way for that to happen or make sense to the audience without playing the whole song.

    I’m walking to turning page by Sleeping At Last. I don’t know if there’s a break per se for me to come in. My fiancé and I are doing something different than traditional ceremony in the sense that my dad is going to be walking my sister down the aisle who is my maid of honor and I’m going to walk by myself. I’m going to get halfway and then my fiancé is going to meet me and walk the rest of the way together as a united team I guess you can say. I think if I walk and as I’m walking he comes and he meets me and we take a moment to ourselves and then turn and face all of our guess and take them in for a moment and allow our photographer to get some photos and our videographer to get some footage before we finish the walk we might be able to fill around three minutes of this song which will be fine with me. I would like the entire four minute song but if I can get at least three minutes of the song I’ll be happy. I’m just not sure what to do.


    Also can I say it makes me feel better that someone else has a small wedding party because I’m so self-conscious about it when I see people that have a million bridesmaids and groomsmen

    That sounds so nice! I don’t know if there’s a spot forever me to come in. My fiancé and I are doing something different and my dad is going to be walking my sister down the aisle who is my maid of honor and I’m going to walk by myself. I’m going to get halfway and then my fiancé is going to meet me and walk the rest of the way together as a united team. A joined unit, you know what I mean? I think if I walk and as I’m walking he comes and he meets me and we take a moment to ourselves and then turn and face all of our guess and take them in for a moment it allows our photographer to get some photos and our videographer to get some footage before we finish the walk we might be able to fill around three minutes of this song. I would like the entire four minute song but if I can get at least three minutes of the song I’ll be happy. I’m just not sure yet.

    Also I think I’m going to let the first 30 seconds of the song play before I enter as it’s instrumental to kill some time

    That sound really beautiful and I think will be fine with just the one song.

    To me personally, wedding parties are just drama and a head ache. Someone will get butt hurt and feel left out, people will complain about what they have to wear and what they have to pay for. I don't want to deal with trying to coordinate a bunch of people and trusting that they'll commit to their role. Don't be ashamed of your itty bitty wedding party Smiley laugh
