Ceremony music?

I'm planning on hiring an acoustic guitarist but I'm not sure if just one would sound good.  I'm planning on using Canon in D which sounds so much better with both the musical lines.  Has anyone been to a wedding with guitar?  Did it sound good, or incomplete? 
Thanks for your opinion.

    I've been to a wedding where they only had one acoustic guitar and it sounded great IMO.  My only advise if you go this route is to make sure they REALLY know the song.  Any mess ups will likely be noticed more-so than if there were more musicians playing.

    We are having an acoustic guitarist as well, and I also plan to walk down the aisle to Canon in D :) The guitarist and I go way back, so I've heard him play the song many times and I think it sounds beautiful with just one guitar. If you search 'canon in d acoustic guitar' on youtube, a lot of videos come up with people playing it, which will give you an idea as to if you think it sounds 'incomplete' or not.

    Good luck!

    Thanks drewmw.  I hadn't thought of that and it does sound great.  I think you just saved me about $200. :)

    go to epanache.com

    they are awesome and i think they have demos you can play in their audio library of some songs with a guitar and piano - it sounded really cool!

    I just went to a wedding with a solo acoustic guitar.  It sounded really nice and I am very picky about music haha.  Good idea!
