We’re having a friend play the guitar for the pre-/post-ceremony music. For the reception, we’re doing the iPod thing. I like having the guitar for the ceremony–more romanitcal!

This is true. My vote is live, no matter who does it!

It’ll depend on what kind of music you want. I’m planning on doing the ipod route, because I want some specific songs and I love the sound of the "real" versions of the songs. A guy playing a guitar couldn’t come close to what I want. If what you want would work with the instruments you have available, live music is definitely always a nice touch.

Also, it could make a difference whether you care about the person playing the music. My little brother and sister are playing something during the wedding on the cello and violin. Will I particularly like what they play, probably not. But will it be hugely meaningful and a great way to have the kids be a part of my wedding, yes. You just have to decide what your priorities are with the music.

And I’m sure it’ll be beautiful no matter what!

I may not even be having music at the reception, but the cocktail hour and ceremony music will be live- a steel drum band since it will be on the beach.
