Hi all! I am just hitting the 6 month mark now before the wedding and need to get a move on with booking things! I am hoping to have a string quartet (or trio?) in the church with a singer to accomodate the classical/traditional music I really want to have. However, after pricing one this morn for 1300 I am unsure if it will be possible. Does anyone know if this is a standard price or are there others out there who didn't pay as much? I have no clue about the cost of this. We are going to married in the South East area and would love a few suggestions/recommendations if anyone has any. Thanks in advance. Bluebell O:o)

Hi Bluebellbride, I will PM you details of mine - I am paying €630 for string trio & singer in Leinster area but am sure they all travel. I got a few quotes and none of them were as expensive as €1,300! Definitely shop around before you book.

Have you tried Sacred Sounds? You can pick which instruments you want and I think their trio is €550. We have booked them for ours and they have been great to deal with so far :)

Hi Bluebellebride! We booked our string trio for 450, they are astral string quartet, they played at my friends wedding a few years ago and she was very happy with them. You might pay a bit extra for travel (im based in dublin) but they were the cheapest we found. They are very friendly to deal with too. Good luck!

Aw no way :( Astral are excellent too, I crashed a wedding ceremony to hear them play & was very impressed - hope they are free on your date!

I used Sirona Strings and was happy with them. I think it was around 600 for the string quartet. We didn't have a singer just the music.
