- Wedding: September 2014
I always thought when I got married, I would have live music for my wedding…especially since my parents are both musicians ( classical), but a couple things that are having me thinking another direction. One is the cost, I want a string quartet and this could run up to $1000, my FI are really trying to cut the cost on our wedding. Another reason is that I am very picky about the sound of the music, the last thing I want is to have subpar musician on my day. My FI is an expert at sound systems and already has a PA system we are having a sound guy that is doing all the sound for free. I have not nailed down my complete ceremony playlist but one of my choices for the processional is an instumental version of Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, I have found a version of it played by my favorite violinist, Joshua Bell ( who would probably cost thousands to hire) and plays better then any local musician, but then again, if I went this route I would be missing out on the whole live music experience? What do you think? Should I go with live music or recorded?
