Rude! Do you have a backup plan in case your Aunt pulls the plug on the whole thing?

I completly understand. They should understand your concerns and certainly take them into consideration since it is YOUR WEDDING!!

Grab aunty by the arm, shake her and yell “you’re not going to ruin my wedding!”. And  plan something little one can do, like the no reed clarinet idea.

wow, they sound awesome, I was tearing up listening, do what you want, just say this is your day, daughter may ruin your moment, appeal to the Uncle, tell him it would be very special if they played and you would be heart brken if they didn’t play ..but only without the daughter..who does that?

 

My niece sang at my wedding we were all tearing up it was such a  special moment within the ceremony, she sang Ave Maria in soprano, my cousin-in-law was shocked when he looked up

 

Don’t let your Aunt ruin your moment, be strong!! It’s wonderful and a  real joy to have musicians in the family

Oy. I had a somewhat similar issue. I asked my concert-level musician brother and sister to sing at my wedding. My Future Sister-In-Law proceeded to complain to my Fiance that she had not been asked to sing…despite not being a singer and not playing any instruments in her life???? And she’s 30 and said this was “unfair” even though she was asked to do a reading (the only one). Some people care more about appearing important than logic.

I was going to say, if she’s never played trumpet before, it’s actually really hard to even get a sound (other than rushing air) out of it without at least a few weeks of work … and you could always pop a mute in there.

Sounds like the problem is solved, though.
