I think it might be a bit…awkward. It was super windy on our wedding day and you could still hear the quartet fine.

Our procession wasn’t completely silent, but it had a similar concept. We used a meditation bell (one of my favorite sounds ever) and had it chime once for the enterance of the guys, once for the enterance of the requisite cute kid/sign bearer, once for the enterance of teen LK, once for the enterance of Maid/Matron of Honor, once for the enterance of my Dad and I, and once more to signal the completion of the processional. The sound of the meditation bell resonates for long after the chime, so it filled the silence without being overbearing. And since the bell chime has deep meaning for me, I found it very soothing.

I love the thought of bells. I also think wind chimes might be sweet and play into your setting.

My inititial thought was, well, that it would be awkward. 

But after reading @lovekiss:  response, I can pictuer hers. So I think if you had something to annoucne the procession it would be better. Otherwise how will people know you are starting?

We’re getting married on the beach and while this crossed our minds, it would just be awkward without music. FI’s aunt was married on a very windy cliff at Cape Perpetua here on the Oregon Coast and you could hear their quartet just fine.
