As noted in a much earlier blog, we offer wedding processionals in many different lengths – something I didn’t find elsewhere, and it seemed as though that would be helpful to couples planning the music for their wedding day. As a piano player at a number of weddings, I always liked the processional to end when the bride reaches the front of the church. So I have arranged many of the most popular ones in timings from very short to much longer. My hope is that visitors to the site find the processional they like with the timing that fits the length of the aisle and the speed that the bride will be coming down the aisle, with perhaps a few seconds extra just in case.
There are some processionals here with 4-6 different lengths; in some cases there are even more versions, because we did each of those versions at 2 different tempos, in case the bride preferred the music slightly faster or slower. I realize that may sound confusing, but when you land on a processional you like, you can simply purchase the album that includes all versions of that song, and then decided later which one fits your wedding best. That could happen at the rehearsal, or it could happen sometime before the rehearsal at a “dry run” to see how long it takes to make it from the back of the wedding venue to the altar, or the front of the auditorium.
