Our ceremony will be outside right on a lake and I’m not sure how the ceremony music is going to work..? I want to typical wedding chant walking down the aisle but I know its not possible to have a piano out by the lake with us..Should I get someone to play a harp and also use them to give our band a break during the reception?

A Harp is a lovely idea – but you could also consider bringing a keyboard outside, they are able to sound just like pianos after all!

@ADKBride: A harp or guitar or something would work. I’m also getting married by a lake, but there are power outlets, so our DJ will be setting up and playing music. Does ADK stand for Adirondack, by any chance?

We had a very talented friend play acoustic guitar. We pretty much just told him to do his thing…and he did. He played while everyone was mingling and finding seats and then we had music takeover once the meal started.

I’m in the same predicament. I’m getting married in the woods and would love to haul a piano to the ceremony site, but I don’t think it will be practical. : ) Right now, I’m trying to find a hammered dulcimer player; it’s such a beautiful instrument, part piano, part harp, and transportable. : )

We had electricity & speakers so we just hooked up our ipod and played our ceremony songs through that.
If you don’t have electricity, I would do the harp or a guitar, both very lovely.

I’m getting married on a lake too. We’re going to have an acoustic guitar player (FI’s request!). I’ve listened to a few guitar solos of wedding songs and have been very impressed with how great they sound!
