Hi knotties; I'll try to keep this short, but I could really use some advice.
Mom is paying for about 75% of the wedding, and really wants live music for the ceremony. I said sure, of course, and told her to pick who she thought would go best with the songs we picked. And Mom picked a solo flutist.
1) It's an outdoor ceremony, and the space isn't really designed for acoustics. I know a flute can be loud, but I think it would have a better effect indoors.
2) The processionals include the themes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Game of Thrones, neither of which strike me as great flute solo music.
3) I'm just not a huge fan of the flute on its own.
What do you guys think? Should I bite my tongue because Mom's footing the bill, or try to put my foot down? I've tried to tell myself that it will work out, but the more I think about it, the less convinced I am. Am I acting crazy?
