We had a solo guitarist play our wedding ceremony and then he offered to play the cocktail hour for free. He was insturmental for the ceremony but sang acoustic songs during the cocktail hour and we had lots of positive comments from the guests. It depends on the style of your wedding but it worked well for us and after a hot afternoon ceremony, getting inside with AC, grabbing a cool drink and listening to some acoustic music (jack johnson, jimmy buffet etc..) it was the perfect transition.

@blushpink:  We had a piano for 99 people in a room and it was lovely. If the 150 are in one room, is should be enough

I had a classical guitarist play an event once as background and it was lovely.  Even if people talk over the guitarist, those that are around them can turn and listen if they choose to do so.  You could also go harpist or some sort of wind…

I’m having two acoustic guitarists in a 100 seat restaurant for my wedding. I’d go for it!

@blushpink:  I’m way late to the party, but “solo guitarist” and “Michigan” caught my eye.  Whoever you hire, be sure to check them out thoroughly.  You might have read the thread(s) recently about (and posted by) the unhinged classical guitarist making crazy threats because of an unfavorable vendor review.  I was the bride who posted the review, and I’m in Michigan also.  It took a week to track him down, but he was served with a PPO this morning.
