Hi ladies! We've been a bit tardy in selecting our ceremony music for our (late) October wedding. We booked our DJ at the end of last year but didn't include the ceremony time because my dream would be to have a string group and I thought I could research it a little later. Somehow, with other life activities going on, we are just now figuring this out and are hoping to decide this week or next.
I'm wondering if there are options out there that I'm not considering. We've gotten quotes from a few string groups, but I'm not sure we want to spend $600-900 for this at the stage where there are very few costs left in my control. I've emailed our DJ to see what the cost would be to add an hour to his contract & if he would charge us to set up a second station. The only other option that has occurred to me is DIY with a phone and iHome or something of that nature, but our ceremony is outdoors for approx. 150 people and I'm not too keen on that idea anyway.
What did you do for your ceremony music? Were you happy with your choice? If you happened to use a string group, can a duo be heard with 150 guests outdoors or is a trio/quartet needed?
