Four Ways to Stretch Your Wedding Music Budget

Julie at Ensemble Elan shared several tips to stretch your wedding music dollars.  I thought they were pretty helpful, so I listed them below.

1. Book an hour of music for the ceremony rather than 1 and 1/2 hours.  This only shortens your prelude music by 15 minutes.

2. Stretch the one hour even more!  Start the prelude music 20 minutes prior to the ceremony and have 10 minutes at the end for guest exit, rather than 15 minutes prior and 15 minutes afterwards.

3. Scale back from a Quartet to a Trio.  Or scale back from a Trio to a Duo.  No matter what the size of the ensemble, the visual impact to your guests will be the same.

4. Still can’t fit live music into the budget?  Tell your preferred musician what you have in mind.  Most of them are very creative and they can think of many ways to accomplish your goal of live music on your wedding day.

Thanks for the tips Julie.  They are great!

Love & Soul Always, Kay
