Many brides dream of having a romantic outdoor wedding. While outdoor gardens, views of the water and beautiful sunsets do create a very special ambience, the surroundings are not always hospitable to musicians’ delicate instruments. The sun can be damaging to a stringed instrument’s fine finish, for example, or the ground conditions can put a harp in jeopardy. The wind can be a potential problem for music stands and the sounds of the ocean can hamper the sound of the music.
Here are some guidelines that we offer for outdoor wedding ceremonies:
There can be no rain, mist or drizzle.
Musicians cannot perform in temperatures lower than 60 degrees.
Musicians must be out for direct sunlight.
Harps must be placed on a dry, level surface that is clear of debris.
When close to the ocean, a tent for the musicians is desirable.
