    Oky, so stupid here voted before reading the WHOLE thing. I didn’t realize you meant for the ceremony. We had a harpist at our ceremony & she came w/ her own amp. Maybe you’ll be able to find a violinist w/ the same sort of set up ๐Ÿ™‚

    Okay, I voted before you changed the name.

    We are having MUSICIANS for our ceremony, not a DJ like I voted. We’re having a string quartet. ๐Ÿ™‚

    That said, I’ve heard music simply played through the speakers before, and that worked fine, as long as there was someone manning it.

    We used our DJ for ceremony music, and it worked out great.  We used instrumental versions of songs we loved (either guitar or violin) and the music was beautiful.  A plus was that she was able to handle a last minute music change very easily. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My ceremony is in a church, so we have a vocalist and an organist.  The reception music will be done by a DJ.

    We had a DJ (sound man) play our music.  I wanted all “non-traditional” music, and was nervous about someone playing.  I also didn’t want someone to play for the reason that I think it can be a bit distracting (sometimes beautiful, sometimes distracting).  I thought our music was perfect! : )
