My parents had a guitarist for their ceremony! I say go for it. I hate the organ, so the organist at our church will be playing the piano for our ceremony.

As for choosing songs, is your ceremony in a church? If so, there may be guidelines.

I had my friend play guitar for our ceremony…it was awesome.  A lot of people looked at me like I had lobsters crawling out of my ears when I mentioned that we were having a guitarist for the ceremony (including our officient!).  But it turned out great.  He played 5 songs instrumentally before the ceremony (while people were walking in and being seated) – I had him play 5 songs off of “Ziggy Stardust” by David Bowie, but it just sounded like pretty instrumental music to anyone who didn’t know better – and then between readings, he and another friend of mine did “Two of Us” by the Beatles.  Almost everyone there said it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to, and they all commented on what a good choice the guitarist was.  Our processional was “Mrs. Robinson” because my new last name rhymes with “Robinson”…we wouldn’t have been able to do that with a harp or an organist!  It was very cute!
