Laclede Quartet - Wedding Services
You have a lot of plans to make. We offer music for every taste. The Laclede Quartet will help to make your event sparkle and provide a pleasant atmosphere for you and your guests. After booking we will send you a wedding planner to help you organize your musical selections.
Arrival & Setup
The group manager will arrive 15 - 20 minutes before we are scheduled to perform. This gives us time to talk to your coordinator about any last minute changes or cues we may need.
Music playing as your guests arrive and take their seats should start 10 - 15 minutes before the ceremony if you are booking 1 hour. If you choose 1 1/2 - 2 hours of time you may wish to start prelude music 30 minutes before the ceremony. Most often clients allow us to choose suitable music for the Prelude rather than making specific requests.
The processional begins when the Grandparents, Parents or first of the wedding party is ready to proceed down the aisle. We will need a cue from a coordinator in order to let us know that your wedding party is lined up and ready to enter. After the cue we perform the music you have chosen for each group to enter. It is best to choose three processional pieces. One for the Grandparents/Parents, another for the Groomsmen, Bridesmaids, Flowergirl & Ringbearer, and finally one selection for the Bride and her escort. You may wish to have a short piece played for the Unity Candle or Sand Ceremony. Most couples select a bright, joyous piece of music for their recessional. All of the wedding party and parents should exit to this work.
