We are getting married in a Church with two musicians playing for our ceremony. They do not have a rate, but we would like to give them each a donation. <br /><br />What did you, or what are you planning on paying, for musicians to play at your ceremony?

We’re having a local pianist/singer play for our ceremony and then cocktail hour. She has set packages, so for two hours we’re paying $500. I’m not sure if rates vary depending where you are or not, but the quotes we received for ceremony music for string duets were about $300. That was for two musicians, for basically one hour (20 minutes of prelude music as guests arrive, processional, registry signing, & recessional.) Solo musicians (ie solo guitar) quoted $150 an hour. I hope that helps!
