    I love the idea of the cellist. That sounds wonderful. And I am assuming you will be listening to the music on speakers for the rest of the night si this will be a great mix.

    I voted dinner music. I don’t think the cello is worth the extra expense. Hopefully people will be talking and enjoying themselves and not even notice what type of music is playing. I can’t say I have any memories about the dinner music from any of the weddings I’ve attended.

    I love live music, but I think music through the speakers would be sufficient. I’ve been to many weddings and honestly, I never pay attention to the music during dinner. I’m usually too busy talking to the people around me to listen to the music 🙂 You could probably spend the money elsewhere.

    I personally love live music and I love string instruments. However, for a dinner in which people will be eating/talking/preoccupied, I’m not sure a solo cellist would be the best fit. It would be lovely, so I don’t think it would be “bad” if you chose that, but like Jacqi, I am not sure if guests pay enough attention to the music during dinner.

    I love the sound of a string instrument in a romantic/intimate setting such as wedding!!

    I love the cellist idea, but more for a time with mingling – like a cocktail hour. WHen people are seated and chowing down, they wouldn’t notice as much as if they were mingling around the musician / bar / chatting.

    I’m definitely a fan of the live music option!

    As someone who’s played cello for 21 years, I gotta go with the cellist!  I would love if I attended a wedding with a cellist.
