You and I are on the same wavelength- garden wedding, acoustic guitar player. I think we are going to have “I’ll Be There”, but I’m not sure what else yet.

I am having my guy friend (who refused to be a bridesman) do the music on his guitar. He is playing Beatles– blackbird, across the universe, and in my life

Us too! Garden/lake wedding and I had my cousin play his guitar for us. To walk in he sang Lou Reed’s “This Magic Moment”. While we were signing he did instrumentals of “Here Comes the Sun” and “God only knows” (I think – is it bad I can’t quite remember?!). And when we were walking back up the aisle he did an instrumental of “This Magic Moment”. I loved that I had someone special to me doing the music and like you I thought the simplicity of guitar + voice was perfect 🙂

My FI’s brother is a classical guitarist.  He’ll be playing classical before and after the ceremony. The last song he’ll do before the seating of family is Van Morrison’s Crazy Love.  Seating of family is Patti Griffin’s Heavenly Day.  I will walk to I’m Yours by Jason Mraz, and we’ll walk out to First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes. All on guitar only.  Yay 🙂

We wanted to but the only person i could find in stl was a flamenco guitarist =]. We opted for CDs of fingerstyle guitar of Beatles music and other classics. LOVED it.

we are! We spent an hour with him tossing ideas back and forth – my mom’s a musician so she picked the music – I don’t remember what it is. For an outdoor wedding make sure he has a speaker.

our friend (professional musician) is playing guitar for our ceremony. he’s playing “just like heaven” by the cure while the groomsmen/bridesmaids walk, “you are my sunshine” while i walk down the aisle, and “love and marriage” by sinatra as our recessional. i’m super excited! it just depends on what the feel of your wedding is. ours is super low key and all about friends and family, so it just made sense.
