"Wow, what a difference live music makes! We hired a violinist and cellist through Strings Attached to perform the music for our wedding ceremony. It was indescribably beautiful and perfectly executed, it made me feel like I was in a dream while walking down the aisle. Extremely professional, kind and accommodating. S. Parker

Excellence and Diversity. Your special event deserves world-class professional musicians. We dedicate ourselves to ensure your music is truly memorable and shows off your unique style. You and your guests can enjoy hearing many various styles of music from Bach, to the Beatles, to Bruno Mars!

"Gorgeous Music for Ceremony and Cocktail Hour! Milene from Strings Attached was beyond compare throughout the entire wedding planning process. She helped us to create a playlist that really represented our own personal taste and style. The ceremony was beautifully played and added so much emotion to the event! Cocktail hour became more modern, and our guests are still raving about the amazing quartet! Strings Attached really elevated our wedding and made it extra special!" C. Ziegler - St.Petersburg Museum

Flexible. Whether your event is indoors, outdoors, or even on the beach, it's easy for us to move within your event and our space requirements are minimal.

"AMAZING!! String Attached really made our day! The day was perfect and they were a large part of it. I would recommend to anyone that may be interested in strings for a wedding. We had them play the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner hour. Our guests raved about how great they were....and so do we! Perfect!" M. Greener

It's about you. From intimate beach ceremonies to elegant formal receptions, Strings Attached live music adds a unique atmosphere to your wedding day. You have the freedom to choose music and songs that are truly yours, making a beautiful statement for your special day. Options are available for String Quartet, Trio, String Duo, or Solo Violin.

We will personally work with you to help you create the ideal music program for your ceremony ranging from traditional classical music to contemporary pop for the modern bride.

We provide the following services during your ceremony...
Music that is performed 15-30 minutes before the start of the ceremony as your guests arrive and are seated.
Special music selections for:
  • Seating of the Parents / Grandparents
  • Bridesmaid Processional
  • Bride / Groom Entrance
Special Requests:
  • Unity Candle - Sand Ceremony
  • Communion - Prayer
  • Accompaniment for vocalist or hymns
Celebratory music chosen at the end of the ceremony after the new couple kiss ... and are introduced for the very first time!
A few minutes of additional music if time allows as your guests mingle and exit, completing the joyful ending to your ceremony.
Cocktail Hour and Reception:
Consider having our string ensembles continue playing for your cocktail hour and/or reception while you're busy taking your post ceremony pictures. This also allows your guests to converse comfortably over our acoustic instruments without struggling to be heard over a loud DJ or band's sound system. You will be surprised how relatively inexpensive it is to add the extra hour. Set an elegant tone by having us play classical music, or start the party mood with more upbeat popular and jazz tunes. Check our repertoire to see the variety in our reception music.

Having live musicians at your wedding offers a level of atmosphere and sophistication that is simply unattainable by any other means. Contact us now to check availability and rates!

Music & Ensembles

Strings Attached can perform both contemporary as well as traditional-classical music for your event. To view our complete repertoire lists, scroll down to "Ensembles" halfway below.

All sound samples performed by our Strings Attached Quartet. (*Trio examples)
Below is just a sample list:


String Quartet: Quartet Sound Sample
Two violins, one viola, and one cello. The fullest sound of all ensembles – equivalent to a 4-part harmony. Performs in all styles and has the largest selection of music to choose from. Recommended for all areas – indoors and outdoors, ceremonies, receptions and events.
String Quartet Complete Repertoire

String Trio: Trio Sound Sample
One violin, one viola, and one cello. Has a slightly smaller sound than the string quartet but our Trio is balanced because we use viola for the middle voice. The Trio is perfect if you are working within a budget or if your event takes place in an average space with about 60-100 guests.
String Trio Complete Repertoire

String Duo: Duo Sound Sample
Two musicians – usually violin and cello, but can be any two instruments of your choice. Great for intimate ceremonies and settings. With this group, you will typically only hear a melody line and a bass line. We do not recommend this for large outdoor areas and events.
String Duo Complete Repertoire

Solo Instrument: Solo Violin Sound Sample
One musician: Violin, Viola, or Cello – your choice. Performs and sounds just a single melody line only. Ideal only for small ceremonies and receptions under 30 guests.
Solo Violin Repertoire

Strings Attached accepts bookings up to one year in advance. We encourage you to contact us as soon as you know your date and venue!

Frequently asked questions

Why should I choose Strings Attached to perform for my wedding?

Strings Attached is passionate about performing and the quality of music we provide. Feel free to listen to our soundclips to hear for yourself. Our string ensembles come complete with everything you’ll need; no need to provide any additional equipment, canopy, or sound system as we are all acoustic. Also we know how to tailor the music to fit your unique ceremony timing so there are no awkward cutoffs or waiting too long for a song to end. Your music flows smoothly and seamlessly.

When can I expect the musicians to arrive?

We will be on location 30-40 minutes prior to our time to play. At this time, we will meet with your officiant or coordinator for last minute instructions.

What do you play as the guests arrive and for how long?

We start playing approximately 15-20 minutes before the ceremony begins. We typically play a choice of light classical or romantic contemporary selections (your choice) that sets the perfect mood for your wedding. You may also choose your own selections from our complete music list.

How will the musicians dress?

Our standard attire is formal/concert black. If you prefer different attire, for example tux or a more casual look for an outdoor/beach wedding, we are happy to accommodate.

What part of the ceremony do you play?

We perform Prelude music approximately 15-20 minutes before the start of the ceremony, music for the Processional (bride, bridesmaids, seating of the parents, etc.), Recessional, and 5-10 minutes of Postlude - exit music for your guests. We will also perform music during any special moments within your ceremony such as candle lighting, prayer, communion, etc. if applicable. This usually totals about an hour’s worth of time.

How do I select music – especially if I don’t know much about music?

We will be more than happy to work with you to help you choose your music program. If you are unfamiliar with the music titles, do not worry. We’ve compiled a list of the most common selections for each part of the ceremony. You can also listen to some short clips on our website of the more common selections under the link Music and Ensembles. Most couples feel this is all they need to plan the music for the entire ceremony. These are only our suggestions and you may choose any piece(s) for any part of the wedding. The Strings Attached music list includes classical, popular, romantic, jazz standards, rock, and Broadway selections.

There is a special piece of music I would like performed. Can you do that?

Yes. Even if it is not available in our repertoire or available for string quartet, we will be happy to write an arrangement for the quartet (a fee applies). Please allow 3 weeks before the wedding date to give us time to arrange it.

Will you perform with guest instrumentalists or singers?

Absolutely. A rehearsal with the guest is required at least 45 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony and this usually adds an additional charge. If the piece is not in our repertoire, we will need a copy of the music 3 weeks before the wedding date in order to have time to arrange it.

Do the musicians attend the dress rehearsal?

It is not necessary for us to be present at your rehearsal, which saves you money. Because we have performed countless weddings, we are experienced in exactly how to time the music for your ceremony. Only a quick conversation with your officiant or your wedding coordinator before the ceremony begins is required to have all the information we need. If you feel more comfortable having a musician present for your rehearsal, we can arrange this for an additional fee.

What do I need to provide for the musicians?

We will need a safe space of approximately 8’ x 10’ and an armless straight chair for each musician. No sound system or electricity is needed for stringed instruments. If the wedding is outdoors, the musicians will need to be seated in a completely shaded area to protect their instruments. Strings Attached provides a white 8’ x 8’ canopy free of charge for our musicians in case of an outdoor event with no shade. This in turn saves you tremendous money and hassle that other companies don't provide. We'll take care of everything for you!

How soon in advance should I contact you to reserve a wedding date?

As soon as you have your wedding date and location! We fill our books quickly and the sooner you can reserve your date, the more likely you can enjoy the beautiful music of Strings Attached at your wedding. We require a 50% deposit and a signed contract agreement (which we provide) to reserve your requested date and time. The remaining balance is due two weeks before the ceremony. We accept credit cards, money orders, and checks. Please make checks payable to Strings Attached, Inc. Credit card payments can be made quickly and easily online at the bottom of our "Contact Us" page.

Are you insured?

Yes! All Strings Attached groups are insured under full liability insurance for your peace of mind. More and more venues (such as the Ritz-Carlton and the Marriot family of Hotels) are requiring this from wedding and event vendors so be sure you pick vendors that are covered.
