    Depends what they are playing, I think. Since it’s a rural country wedding, as opposed to say a black tie affair, I think it could be quite charming.

    Well, I’m from Hawaii, so… I vote awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Do ukuleles or Hawaii have a special meaning to you? Or are either of you particularly interested or involved in different types of music? Otherwise, I could maybe see some people raising a brow over the instrument choice, but still, most people don’t even notice a lot of these little details that us brides obsess over ya know?

    ETA: OMG. Love the name!! lol!

    Well, I play the ukulele, so I think it’s awesome : ) I might have one of my uke-player friends play some stuff at our reception/ceremony (which will be in a barn in the country).

    When I think of ukelele’s I think of the song from 50 first dates… Somewhere over the rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.  I love this song!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O-LDea7SHY

    I think you should do it!

    I’m an admitted music lover, so while it may strike me as somewhat random, I would still think it was fantastically awesome. But then again this is coming from the girl who was as giddy as a kid on christmas when her buddies got to gether to play harmonica, mandolin and a stand up bass together haha.

    If you love it I think you should do it, because really, you could ride a giant panda down the aisle and no one would be able to say anything about it ๐Ÿ˜›

    Go Team Ukelele!

    We are having a friend play the ukelele for our ceremony.  Not Hawaiian, not getting married on the beach.  Just have a friend who plays the ukelele and we both agreed it would be the most awesome, slightly quirky ceremony music imaginable. 

    (also, Magnetic Fields has a ukelele sometimes and they’re one of the most romantic bands around)
