Top Wedding Musicians related questions

To start looking for wedding musicians near you through Airtasker, select the “Post a task” button. Fill out the form with your wedding date, venue, budget, and any details the Tasker should know (e.g. song requests, if you want a full orchestra or a solo pianist). Then, tap “Get quotes” and wait for the offers to appear on your screen. Once you find the wedding musicians who best fit your needs, tap to confirm your booking. 

Usually, musicians are advised to wear black and white attire when playing at weddings. This is to keep their look professional without drawing attention away from the couple. If you do have any special requests regarding your Taskers’ attire, you can specify this in your task post or discuss this with the musicians once you’ve booked them.

You can find a variety of local musicians through Airtasker! These include string quartets, pianists, guitarists, harpists, and even bands. These musicians can perform at your wedding or any other event, and some of them can even give you at-home music lessons. Our platform makes it easy for you to find rated and reviewed musicians on a budget.

Anything you like! Whether you want classical music, timeless love songs like “La Vie En Rose” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, modern love songs, dance hits or a mix of everything. You can go through your personal playlists and pick out songs that have a special meaning for you (as a couple and as individuals). Then, ask your wedding musicians if they can include these in their setlist. 

It really depends on your vision and your budget. A violinist is usually more affordable than a string trio, but having a group of wedding musicians can add a different layer of complexity and beauty to your wedding soundtrack. Either way, you’ll certainly wow your guests with the timeless romance that a string trio or violinist can provide. Plus, you can easily find either kind of musician through Airtasker. 

Though it may depend on the Taskers you book, you could arrange any song of your choice for a string quartet. Some popular choices nowadays include “Memories” by Maroon 5, “Canon in D” by Pachelbel (upon which “Memories” was based), “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri, “Groovy Kind of Love” by Phil Collins, and “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. Need to fix your speakers ASAP before the wedding date? You can use Airtasker to book a speaker repair specialist near you!

What do wedding musician services include?

When you book wedding musicians through Airtasker, you can expect a group of skilled musicians to bring their instruments to your wedding venue, serenade you and your guests, and provide a memorable soundtrack for your big day. 

The exactly inclusions can vary depending on the Taskers you hire, but here’s what you might expect when working with wedding musicians near you:

Preparing a setlist for your ceremony or reception

Even before you book a Tasker for your wedding music, you should already have an idea about the kind of music you want to hear. You might want Top 40 music for the reception, piano covers of your favourite songs, a gospel choir, or big band jazz. Indicate your choices in the task post, and once you pick your wedding musicians, discuss the setlist with them. The Taskers can suggest other songs to include in the setlist. If you haven’t picked out songs for key moments like your first dance or recessional, they can help you decide on these, too.  

Additionally, if you’re getting the musicians for more than just a few songs, you may want to discuss your “do not play” list. This step helps the Taskers steer clear of any tracks that could bring down your party’s mood or cause some awkward moments with your guests.

Helping you decide on band size

Unlike a wedding band which is typically a fixed group, some wedding musicians may offer flexibility that will fit your budget and the vibe you want to achieve. For example, a 9-piece band might be a better fit for an upbeat party, while a string trio will suit a solemn and intimate ceremony. For a minimalist yet emotionally impactful performance, we suggest getting a solo instrumentalist (possibly paired with a vocalist). If you want a classically romantic atmosphere, string quartets or classical guitarists work best.  

Providing instruments and sound equipment

Performers typically bring their own instruments, but not all wedding musicians have their own sound system. For cases like these, you’ll need your wedding coordinator or your venue to provide the speakers, amplifiers, and cables. Be sure to coordinate with the Taskers so that they can set up and do soundchecks before the guests arrive. 

When booking wedding musicians, you might be presented with a contract rider, which includes items you’ll have to provide, such as transportation to and from the wedding venue and meals. Remember to read this rider carefully and to let your wedding coordinator know what to prepare for the Taskers.
