Ceremony music??

I have a question, I would like to have live musicians peform at my ceremony, such as a quartet, but there are some songs I would like played that I'm not sure they would be able to play (such as Hawaiian version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow.)  Could I use both or would that be tacky?  Any thoughts?

Those are entirely different instruments for what you want out for wedding march and the Iz cover.  You probably need to hire two different sets of musicians. Tacky is subjective and as long as it makes you happy, why care?

Yea, I will go with it as long as it's permitted in the venue. In my case, it has to be approved by the priest in the church we'll get married in.

Every time I've asked someone "what do you think about that?" or "do you think it's okay if I do that?" they all say the same thing - it's your wedding, do exactly what you want. And that's the truth. I hired a duo of musicians to play at my wedding, and I've found that most vendors will do exactly what you want them to do because they want your money. Just make sure to ask about specific songs before you sign any paperwork. I found my musicians through the local orchestra company. Maybe there's one in your area, too. If you have a University or college close by, they might have their own orchestra filled with musicians who are willing to make some money.

I hired a band AND a DJ. The band is going to play for the ceremony, the cocktail hour, dinner, and the beginning of dancing. Then, we'll have a DJ take over for the last 2 or 3 hours for dancing.


I talked to my band about having a DJ, too, and they were just fine with it! They even had a DJ to recommend that they work with often, AND they got me a discount with the DJ. I'm stoked.


I think--the possibilities are endless. Run it over with your church, make sure they're ok with it, and then--do whatever you want! :o)
