I’ve been to a couple of weddings that had an acoustic guitar for the ceremony, and I really liked it. For one of them, though, there was still some sound amplification for the guitar. At the one where there was no amplification, it was very hard to hear any music at times. Would your venue be ok with some amplification for something like that? As long as it’s not blaring music? I take it you need a mic and speakers for the actual ceremony, right?

I think something like a string trio or quartet would be amazing for a ceremony and/or reception. Depending on the size of the reception space and number of guests, a group with three or four instruments may be heard well enough without amplification. Many string groups can do arrangements of contemporary music, including rock and pop, and oldies and jazz standards, as well as classical music, so I wouldn’t consider that boring at all!

happycamper32 :  I think this is more of a question for you and the type of wedding you want to have. Are you planning a pretty chill wedding with minimal dancing? Or do you want a big party where people are raging into the early morning? 

 

If I were having or attending a wedding with no amplification I would expect it to probably be earlier in the day, or more of a cocktail party vibe than a big party.
