We had a couple of inquiries asking if they can book an orchestra for their wedding. The first question that always pops into our head is, “Are you sure?”
Clients are usually familiar with the elegant and classy sound of string instruments such as the violin and the cello. But that’s about it. So, we decided to compile quick and necessary info's about having an orchestra for your big day:
If you want a soothing, sweet sound but on a budget, other alternatives are string ensembles, string quartets and acoustic bands with violins and/or cellos.
On a side note, please don't get us wrong. This is not to discourage you from booking an orchestra at all. It's just that for a normal wedding, we find it too extravagant to have one. However, if you have the means and the venue, why not? For sure, they can give you and your guests a superb musical experience.
Do you have more questions about what kind of music to have for your event? Comment below and we'll help you answer them.
