We hired student string musicians through SF Conservatory; you can look into something similar to keep the costs down and while maintaining the “atmosphere.”

I wouldn’t have had anything but live music – I think recorded music is totally cheesy.  Strings sound beautiful!  We had pipe organ music at ours.

My mom was so insistent on getting a string quartet for our ceremony but that wasn’t what we wanted.

Instead we hired a duo of accoustic guitar and violin and they were amazing.  Hearing the music play as I was getting ready to walk down the aisle gave me chills.  It was so special.  They provided music during the ceremony and cocktail hour and our guests really enjoyed them.

We are looking into strings.  Also hopefully using a local (prestigious) music school like PP– just started looking into this, I’m excited!

We had a piano player that did all of our music. When meeting with the music coordinator at the church, he said that many couples are now opting to do recorded music.

@chrissyb464: We had a string quartet. It was my Mum’s idea, I went with it really, but on the day I loved it.
