Top Five Budget Tips for the Ceremony Music

  1. Ask a talented friend or family member if they would play at your wedding ceremony as their gift to you. Offer to purchase/provide the sheet music, if necessary.
  2. Hire a music student to play. Usually, music students are excellent musicians but will generally charge less.
  3. Skip music and have someone read out loud a love poem or letters you have written to each other.
  4. Instead of the traditional string quartet, consider hiring a pianist or a classical guitarist to provide the music for your wedding. You’ll save by not paying for multiple musicians to perform.
  5. Create a special playlist on your iPod and hook it up to some rented speakers (which sound MUCH better than the home kinds). Ask a friend to start and stop the music when appropriate.
