Listen to him play first but it can be nice.

@jenjen96:  I personally love it. I am having my brother in law sing Marry Me by Train with his acoustic guitar while I walk down the aisle 🙂 Go for it!

My college roommate had a solo guitar at her ceremony and it was really lovely!

We’re having a guitarist play at our ceremony. Haven’t picked the music yet, guess I should get on that soon!

I’m having a guitar soloist as well.  I’ve been to weddings that have included a guitar soloist and I liked them.  We knew guy who would do it, and in my opinion live music is better than an ipod and speakers!  I would talk to him about your music selections to pick stuff that is going to sound good on a guitar.  Also one way I looked for music was by going on you tube and listening to what my selections will sound like as a guitar solo.  This has helped me a lot in my music selection process.

We had a guitar duo….it was beautiful, they did a fantastic job and we got many complements on having them play at our ceremony and cocktail hour.

I looove accoustic guitar so that is what we did (my cousin too!). We had him do four songs: 

For the bridal party- God Only Knows (Beach Boys)

For my walk- Here, There, and Everywhere (Beatles, instrumental only)

Ceremony song- Chasing Cars (Death Cab)

Recessional- How Sweet it is (James Taylor)

Yep, my brother had classical guitar for his ceremony and it was lovely (although they played different songs from what was on the program so make sure you make that clear beforehand…) and we’re having a good friend play acoustic guitar at our ceremony as well!
