A friend of mine was going to play our ceremony music for us (for free). She got an amazing opportunity out of the country starting a few weeks before the wedding, so she can no longer play for us. EEEK! Fiance and I don’t really know anyone else who could do it. The church organist may or may/not be able to come through at such late notice.
What to do . . . (and we are extremely budget conscious)?

Check out craigslist! Or you can call a high school and talk to an orchestra teacher–they may have suggestions!

We used a CD for our ceremony. The synagogue was able to hook it up to their speakers so it filled the room. Might that be an option for you?

If the church has a choir director, ask for references of organists at area churches.
You can also find someone at a local music college who’d do it for less, but you run the risk of having someone who doesn’t have experience playing for weddings.

@2dBride:That sounds like a good back-up plan. Did you have someone assigned to que the music, etc. I’m not sure if they have a sound system. But we’ll have to work that out if the time comes.
