Ceremony musicians may cost anywhere from $200 to $500 a piece. To cut back on cost, first taking a look at what may already be available in your space. Also you want to keep the number of guests to ceremony musicians ratio in mind. A quartet is appropriate for a group of 200. To cut back and save, you might consider hiring a duo or trio and a sound person. Or, even better, ask your band or DJ that come with mics and music. Also be mindful of what will sound good amplified. Of the instruments typically requested for weddings, guitars and string instruments (like violins and cellos) resonate best.
The setting is a big factor too. If your venue is indoors, you’ll be able to get away with more thanks to the room acoustics. Then again, if you’re outside and you have 200 people, you won’t even hear a duo. Plan ahead if it’s an outdoor setting so that you’re prepared with microphones or enough musicians to combat the outside noise. When it comes to hiring a DJ it can be hard picking out ceremony music.
