Romanza Strings is a group of string players [violins, viola and cello] who have been performing for weddings in the Sarasota, Venice and Bradenton area for almost 20 years.

You may choose to have a Duet, Trio or full string Quartet. We also have available, flute, harp, keyboard and trumpet.

The fees are broken down by number of players and number of hours.

We take care of everything from A-Z. We can help you plan the program or we can do it all ourselves. We will work with your coordinator or officiant for the timing cues. We arrive in plenty of time to set up and be ready to play the Prelude Music for your guests 30 minutes before the attendants begin their procession.

You may go to our website for ideas:

www.RomanzaStrings.com

We will also play for your Cocktail Hour directly following the Ceremony, as well as your reception.

ROMANZA STRINGS will consult with you personally about your selections and we take care of every detail so that you can enjoy the beauty of your wedding just as you have planned it.

Please feel free to contact Lucia. Read less

Lucia with Romanza Strings was fabulous to work with! She was kind and patient and answered all of my questions. It was a pleasure to work with her! For our Tampa wedding, Romanza strings was more reasonably priced than local string musicians. I received compliments on the music for our ceremony. Use Romanza strings, there's no need to consider any other options!

Romanza Strings was recommended by our officiant when we discussed that we wanted live music at our wedding ceremony and we are so thankful we found them and that they were available on our date. We used a two person group, violin and cello, and it was absolutely beautiful. You could tell by the quality, that they are professionals and very good at what they do. We had an outdoor beach ceremony and they were set up under a tent. They provided music prior to the ceremony, during, and briefly after as well. We communicated through email as we were out of state and Lucia covered all of the questions we had. She allowed us to pick the music for each part of the wedding party entering and exiting, but also gave some common suggestions to choose from, which was very helpful. The quality we got for the price we paid was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Romanza Strings provided us with a string trio for our wedding on Lido Key Beach. Working with Lucia was very easy. She offered song suggestions and planned the majority of our music program for us. We even decided the day before the wedding that we were going to move the ceremony time up an hour due to the weather. They were there on time and everything was perfect. I was too wrapped up in the moment to hear the music myself, but all of my guests said they enjoyed it. Thanks ladies!

Romanza Strings did an amazing job performing at my wedding ceremony! They did a fantastic job and made the ceremony beautiful! Everyone commented on how amazing they were, and the touch of elegance that they added to the wedding ceremony!
I can not say enough good things about Romanza Strings! They were very professional and did a beautiful job! I would recommend them to everyone and anyone!
From day one they were great, very quick to respond to emails and easy to contact by phone. They put everything together for me and made sure to keep me informed, and you can not beat the cost for what you will receive in return! I loved having Romanza Strings apart of my wedding ceremony! =)

I used the string quartet for my ceremony music, which I think added a touch of elegance that recorded music would have lost. One thing I thought was interesting is that even though they know all the traditional classics, they have also converted more modern songs into string quartet form (At Last, Coldplay, Beatles, Sweet Dreams..). I used the traditional music in the ceremony and the fun modern music during the prelude and the postlude. They were very easy to work with and offer different combinations, such as trio, duet, ect if money is an issue.

My experience with Romanza Strings was great! They were very professional and everything went as planned. I had a very small, garden ceremony, so I just had a string duet but it was perfect and they were able to perform every song I requested. It was the right background music before the ceremony and people commented that it was perfect. For the price, quality, and professionalism, I would definitely recommend Romanza Strings for any bride who wants a classy and intimate music experience.

We hired Romanza Strings for a string duet (violin & viola) to play at our outdoor wedding of about 40 people. Lucia made it very really easy to select songs for the entire ceremony. She made fantastic suggestions for song selection and their order. Both players were dressed professionally and created a lovely atmosphere for the guests as they were seated and after the ceremony was wrapping up. Lucia was very responsive and detailed in the planning process. The prices are reasonable as well. We recommend Romanza Strings for your event!

Romanza was a dream to work with. They were really responsive, both in speed and quality, and worked with me and my desire to have a unique, quirky, and personalized musical selection. They already had a good array of music to choose from, and were flexible working with me to learn a song I was really excited about incorporating. [Tip: check out Vitamin String Quartet for fun pop songs that can be "claissicized" to be used in the wedding.] I recommend them wholeheartedly.

RomanzaStrings was fantastic; a bit hit at my mom mother's birthday party. She responded quickly and was able to quickly put together a great set based on my specific and general requests. It was ultimately was very special for my mom. It was going so well that I asked them to stay an additional 1.5 hours! I'm not sure they'd want me to advertise this but they were able to add to their first set pieces that fit my original requests. If you are looking for a string duet, trio or quartet in Sarasota Florida for a wedding, birthday or any type of event really -- you can't go wrong with these professional musicians.

They found music for a song that we requested and they also sent us clips of many of their songs so we could get a feel for what they would be performing on our day. They also responded to every e-mail and call in a timely fashion, which is so important when you are planning a wedding. I highly recommend them to any other brides-- they are fabulous!

Lucia was great to work with and very responsive. She let my family come to a rehearsal to see if we liked the strings before choosing them for our ceremony music and they brought tears to our eyes. We had them playing on the beach next to the ceremony and it was so romantic. I wish we had them all night long!

Leading up to our wedding, Lucia (the contact person for this group) was very easy to deal with. We had chosen very traditional ceremony music and that was not a problem. My maid of honor is a professional singer and we wanted her to sing the song "God Only Knows" during the ceremony. Lucia was completely willing to learn a new song and didn't charge us extra for this, which was great. On the day of the wedding, during our song, the violinist messed up the song and started playing a completely different song in the middle! Luckily she got somewhat back on track, but really the music was laughably bad. In fact I'm not even upset over it b/c it provided a lot of laughs afterwards. However, after the wedding Lucia emailed my maid of honor to say how sorry she was for the music during the wedding and to say that the violinist was a sub for a normal member of their group. I really wish they had apologized to my parents or I though, since we're the ones that paid for it!
