wedding musician basics

Wedding ceremony music is usually comprised of three types of songs: the preludes (played before the ceremony starts), processional (what you walk down the aisle to), and recessional (the song you leave the ceremony to). Many couples choose to have multiple processional songs, playing a different tune for the wedding party than for the bride. You can also have musical interludes or special songs played or sung at various moments of the ceremony, such as during readings or unity candle ceremonies. And how do you find the wedding ceremony musicians who will pull off all these tunes? Our handy local resource guide is the best way to find great wedding ceremony quartets and soloists near you. Before you set up interviews, though, it is a good idea to check with your ceremony venue that it's okay to bring in musicians. You also want to make sure there is room for an ensemble and that everyone will be able to hear the performer. This may mean setting up sound equipment, so be sure to budget for that potential expense. As always, it's best to work within your budget -- keep in mind that the average wedding quartet may cost around $150 per piece.
