@Sandrawchs:  I think it would be enough for a wedding that size.

We are also doing a solo violin during the ceremony and cocktail hour, and it never occured to me that it wouldn’t be enough.  It will be a backyard wedding, with 100 people.  Now you’ve got me worried….

I went to a wedding ceremony with just a violin and it was very very nice!

One is plenty, I have been to a wedding outside and they had one violinist

I am also wondering this. My brother is an expert violinist and will be playing our processional music as his contribution to our wedding. We are having a Catholic Church ceremony with around 150 guests so now I’m second guessing if we need “backup” music at the same time.

A solo violinist would be amazing, IMO. I’ve been to 2 weddings that had that, one was 170 people and the other was 80 people. In both settings it was great!

I am having the ver same concern right now… I haven’t booked my violinst yet, but he is charging us $500 for just the ceremony (and says we can negotiate cocktail hour)…

I haven’t met with him yet, but I am going to ask if he plays recorded music/cd’s in the background to sort of FILL in what I think should be in the background….

My niece plays. I’ll be having her. If you have a concern, give the violinst a microphone and amplifier or something so music can carry.

You could have a solo violinist with some background music if you’re worried.
