Great recommendation, Latte!    Fiance & I both work at a university.  Every Thursday afternoon, a different band gives a live concert outside of the Student Center.  Last week it was the University’s R&B Ensemble.  They played a wide variety of stuff from 60’s greats to Norah Jones hits… and were really AWESOME! Fiance commented on how great it would be to hire them for our reception music.  Immediately, I had visions of the closing scene from "Dan in Real Life".  :o)

Until now, we’d been planning on doing the iPod thing because all of the other alternatives just seemed way too expensive.  There may be hope yet!

I think this is a great idea! 🙂  We were able to find a string ensemble to play for our ceremony through our university and they’re great AND much more affordable than the professional options.  I was able to get the contact information for the student ensembles through the particular studio at the University.  (I called the strings department, because we were looking for a string ensemble), but posting advertising on school bulletin boards/websites is a great idea.
