What do you mean by noticed?

A violin on its own will sound kind of thin, because unlike a piano it can only carry one musical line at a time. Usually for a wedding a violin would have to be accompanied by a piano.

I think violins give beautiful music but I dont know if the sound of the violin itself will carry through the whole church if its just one violinist. We are having a piano/violin duo. It carries better.

Depending on the space I think it would be fine. I think its a nice touch. I was really set on not having anything like that because it is more formal than I would like, but my mom talked me into it. I am having a violin and cello in an outside location. Can you ask your violing player if they have any demos and whether they will require amplification?

We had a solo violin in a park….and yes it was not very loud but it was still beautiful:) Our ceremony was small about 60 people

I had a violin and cello in an outside location–no amplification needed.  They played about a half hour before, then the ceremony, then a couple minutes afterward.  My guests raved about it!

I’m not having a sound system on for my beach wedding and I am having a violinst and I think the sound will carry very well outdoors..and I think it would totally be fine for a small chapel as well! I think the violin is a very beautiful instrument and it is PERFECT for weddings.. I had my violinist play all the songs I wanted and it sounded awesome so I say GO FOR IT! 🙂

I think it would be beautiful! Even better if you can get a cello too as others suggested.
