Ceremony Music and Decorations

Hey Guys,I was was wondering if you had any suggestions for a trio/ quartet for my wedding.   The church has a pianist but I was hoping for a trio/quartet.   Does anyone know about how much they run?  Not sure if it would be in my budget or not.   Also, I am having trouble finding places that rent aisle markers.   I looked at Ginger's party rentals but they didnt really have what I was looking for--- I am looking for a tall iron/metal one that holds a candle and that you can put greenery/flowers on.   I know some florists carry them but a friend's sister is doing my flowers and she doesnt have anything like that.   Not sure if another florist would rent them or not if i am not having them do my flowers?  Thanks so much!

    For a Trio or Quartet check with college's that have Music Degree Programs. Student Musicians will charge less than professionals but you will get quality musicians.

    We used pan string trio  I think the website is panstringtrio.com.  For all three musicians it is $600 (may have gone up by now) but we are just having two and are paying less.  The lady issuper nice and will work with your budget so if you email her and tell her what you would like to pay she can suggest something.  Good luck!

    No, I never got pricing from LSU.   I called and the Music Director person told me he would have one of the students call me to give me pricing but they never did :(  I havent called back or anything yet because I wanted to meet with my priest first and get all the ceremony details before i really started looking for the musicians.  The music director at my church said she knew a few that played with the BR symphony and she was going to give me their numbers once i met with the priest.   I will let you know if i find anything out.
