    We are having a professional harpist and flutist play just before the ceremony, during the ceremony, and just after the ceremony.

    I am not sure what you mean by how we are organizing our musice. We just gave them a list of our songs and when we want them played for the ceremony itself and for the prelude and after music, we are leaving that up to them.

    Ipod all the way!  It’s cheap and we’ve got the sound equipment for free from my dad.

    The church where we are getting married is very strict with the music selection, so we just decided to use their organist for the ceremony music.  I would have loved to walk down the aisle to a Beatles instrumental, but we were told that wouldnt be “appropriate.”

    lame. 🙁

    We’re also having a harpist.  She will be solo before the ceremony, but may have her brother accompany her on the recessional.  I’m going to meet her on the 29th (I’ve heard her samples online) and will decide if her brother will also play, or not.  We’ll iron out more details of the music she’ll be playing when I meet her, as well.  I’m really excited about having her play!

    We are having a little of everything…church musicians (piano, drum, bass), vocalists (paid), organist, and CD song for recessional. Although I’m sure the musicians will chime in with the CD. They are just that good. 🙂

    I’m thinking of hiring a string trio or quartet. I know it’s expensive but I really really want to walk down the aisle to some really cool instrumentals and so I’m saving up for it. I would love a harpist though as my second option!

    We’re having a solo musician, but we’ll still torn between a Spanish Guitar and a Violin.

    I voted twice.  We will have a DJ playing prelude music and the recessional.  FI’s brother will play the processional and bridal entrance on his guitar.  I’m really excited about having such a personal touch!  But we’re also going to have him record the songs and give a copy to the DJ, just in case.  I’d hate for him to hurt his hand or something and then have to walk down the aisle in silence!

    We are actually going to use a bagpipe!!! I’m so excited! And no, neither one of us (or our parents that I know of) are from Scotland. We just love the sound of them. Plus, my fiance begged and begged for us to have a pipe organ when we got married. We found a church that we wanted to use for that reason–and then we found our outside venue!!! So we scrapped the church and got the next best thing, bagpipes!
