How do you figure out the timing of processional songs?

We hear horror stories all the time about musicians not stopping when the bride arrives, creating an uncomfortable and awkward moment right at the beginning of the ceremony.

Please know that we will *never* do that.

This is the brilliant thing about experienced live musicians!  After ten years and hundreds of weddings we’ve developed a collective mind, and we can make any song sound like it was supposed to end *right there* – just as the bride arrives, for example.  We won’t leave you standing there waiting for the song to end.

We will, of course, ask you for a detailed outline of how many people are walking down the aisle to each piece of music and where they’ll be starting from, and we also benefit from a cue to begin the first processional.
