Solo Guitar or Guitar with Flute

Guitar and Flute are like love and marriage, to paraphrase the classic Jimmy Van Heusen song, they go together so beautifully. The rich tones of the guitar perfectly compliment the shimmering sound of a silver flute.

Berit is frequently asked which is better, having a solo guitarist for the wedding ceremony or adding a flutist to make a flute and guitar duo? A practical consideration for whether to choose a solo guitarist of a flute and guitar duo has to do with the size of you wedding party. Generally speaking, a solo guitarist is the perfect musical accompaniment for a wedding party of about 100 people or less, whereas a flute a guitar duo is often a better choice for a larger gathering.
