We’re having a string quartet at our wedding, priced at $600. I’m in Cincinnati, so while it’s still metro, I’d expect prices in NY/Long Island to be even higher. I think that’s a reasonable price, if you want quality.

Let me rephrase: whether “reasonable” or not, it seems like that’s an average price. Make sure you don’t lose out on quality if you find a lower-priced group.

Hope this helped!

My friend used a string quartet here in NYC that she paid $500 for. It was for both the ceremony and cocktail hour. I can’t remember the website she got them from but pm me and I can check for you. They were really good. You know, you can also get some NYU music majors to do it for you on the cheap. According to what I heard, they are really good too.

Check on craigslist.  That is how I found our musician for cheap.

I think that price is reasonable, especially for your area. You could ask around about student groups from Music schools or colleges who often do it for less money. I had a string quartet for $800

If you can’t find anyone cheap enough you could also go with a string trio (My first instinct was string quartet but when I found prices in my area were too high I found a great guitarist/violinist duo that fits my more casual wedding perfectly :).)

@Gemstone:  I am in Cincinnati as well and I’m in search of a string quartet, who did you use?
